[very faint edgewear, otherwise clean and newsstand-bright; just about as nice as you could possibly want]. A "theme" issue of sorts, with two of the three complete screenplays -- ELECTION (by Alexander Payne and Jim Taylor) and REBEL WITHOUT A CAUSE (by Stewart Stern) -- providing a cross-generational justification for the "Dangerous Teens" heading at the top of the front cover; additionally, the Keynote Essay, by Molly Haskell, is called "Teen Power." The third script, while not teen-themed, is "dangerous" in a different way: THE BIRDS by Evan Hunter. All scripts, as usual with this publication, are accompanied by interviews with their writers, and there are several other features of interest in this issue: an article by Donald Spoto, "Love, Dreams & Hitchcock," addressing the question of whether or not Alfred Hitchcock was a romantic; an article by Millard Kaufman about the hubbub surrounding the presentation of an honorary Oscar to Elia Kazan; a discussion of Philip Glass's film scores, by Michael Rohatyn. Rounding out the issue are two short film scripts: GOFER, by Joe Hamersky, and FISH BELLY WHITE, by Michael Burke.
