Three Screenplays by E. L. Doctorow
Book DescriptionOne of America's most accomplished and acclaimed living writers, E. L. Doctorow has played an active role in transforming his novels into films, writing screenplay adaptations of three works: The Book of Daniel, Ragtime, and Loon Lake. These scripts reveal a new aspect of Doctorow's remarkable talents and offer film students and other cineastes unique insight into the complex relationship of literature and motion pictures. Each of these screenplays has undergone a different fate. Doctorow's script for Daniel was made into a feature film by director Sidney Lumet in 1983. The monumental Ragtime screenplay he wrote for director Robert Altman was to have been filmed as either a six-hour feature film or a ten-hour television series. When Altman was replaced on the project by Milos Forman, a shorter, more conventional script was commissioned from another writer. In 1981, Doctorow adapted Loon Lake, but this challenging work has yet to be filmed.
