The film starred Ricki Lake , Sonny Bono , Debbie Harry , and Divine . Hairspray was a dramatic departure from Waters’ earlier works, with a much broader intended audience. In fact, Hairspray’s PG is the mildest rating a Waters film has received; most of his previous films were rated X by the MPAA . Set in 1962 Baltimore, Maryland , the film revolves around self-proclaimed “pleasantly plump” teenager Tracy Turnblad as she simultaneously pursues stardom as a dancer on a local TV show and rallies against racial segregation . Hairspray was only a moderate success upon its initial theatrical release, earning a modest gross of $8 million. However, it managed to attract a larger audience on home video in the early 1990s and became a cult classic . Most critics praised the film, although some were displeased with the overall campiness . In 2002, Hairspray was adapted into a Broadway musical of the same name , which won eight Tony Awards , including Best Musical in 2003. A second film version of Hairspray , an adaptation of the stage musical, was released by New Line Cinema on July 20, 2007; which included many changes of scripted items from the original. The film also ranks 444th on Empire magazine ‘s 2008 list of the 500 greatest movies of all time. Plot Tracy Turnblad (Ricki Lake ) and her best friend, Penny Pingleton (Leslie Ann Powers ), audition for The Corny Collins Show , a popular Baltimore teenage dance show based on the real-life Buddy Deane Show . Despite being overweight, Tracy becomes a regular on the show, infuriating the show’s reigning queen, Amber Von Tussle (Colleen Fitzpatrick ), a privileged, beautiful high

 Arthur Penn


Arthur Penn


$54.95


Beginning in 1957 with the release of his directorial debut The Left Handed Gun, Arthur Penn (b. 1922) quickly became an iconoclastic and influential American film director. Moving deftly between comedy and tragedy, realism and absurdity, his films Mickey One, Bonnie and Clyde, Alice”s Restaurant, Little Big Man, and Night Moves speak to the troubled times–the 1960s and 1970s–in which they were made while remaining timeless in their unsettling portrayal of characters on the margins of society. Arthur Penn: Interviews is the first collection to explore every stage of the director”s career. These conversations span forty-five years, from his first in-depth discussion with Cahiers du cin ma in 1963 to a new interview from 2007, and reveal Penn”s ever-changing ideas on the nature of film and filmmaking. This volume also presents newly translated interviews from European film periodicals, published in English for the first time.

 CRISIS CLIMAX


CRISIS CLIMAX


$8


This book explores the five structural elements of a film story: the Inciting Incident in Act 1; Turning Point 1 and the Midpoint in Act 2; and the Crisis Decision and Climax in Act 3. I show the function each element plays in the story, and their relationship with the story’s controlling idea (theme).  Fifty films from seven genres are separately considered. For each movie I show how the five elements work as a template of reversals that pull the plot deeper into its specific controlling idea. As you see this explained in film after film you will gradually understand how a story is created. Writing this deepened my own understanding of story process, and led to my completing my first novel in 2009. This book is intended for screenwriters, novelists, and film enthusiasts. Enjoy!
