Description - Overhearing Film Dialogue by Sarah Kozloff
Since the birth of cinema, film has been lauded as a visual rather than a verbal medium; this sentiment was epitomized by John Ford's assertion in 1964 that, "when a motion picture is at its best, it is long on action and short on dialogue". Through informative discussions of dozens of classic and contemporary films - from "Bringing Up Baby" to "Terms of Endearment", from "Stagecoach" to "Reservoir Dogs" - this text provides a study of the use of dialogue in American film.
