[ex-library book but virtually unmarked (just small library stamp on top edge), remnants of former jacket cover (now replaced) on both pastedowns (covered by jacket flaps); jacket has some minor creasing/wrinkling]. (B&W photographs) Updated and considerably-revised edition of the author's groundbreaking book, originally published in 1974; much harder to find than the original. The chapters from the previous edition on the big-caper film and the musical have been removed; new material includes a chapter on Sergio Leone and ONCE UPON A TIME IN AMERICA, a chapter about Kung Fu films, a chapter on literary adaptation with special attention paid to THE TREASURE OF THE SIERRA MADRE, and material on Woody Allen and Mel Brooks in the chapter on comedy and social change.
