  • 42nd Street (Wisconsin/Warner Bros. Screenplay Series)

    By Rocco Fumento

    Our Price: $7.50
    • Format: Hardcover
    • ISBN-13: 9780299081003
    • Publisher: The University of Wisconsin Press
    • Published: December 1980
    This screenplay of 42nd Street, along with Rocco Fumento's thorough and engrossing introduction, takes the reader behind the scenes to see how the Warners studio took a dismal novel and, working within severe financial constraints brought on by the Great Depression, turned out a smash musical hit. 42nd Street is a watershed film, one that resuscitated the Hollywood musical during troubled times. Yet 42nd Street wasn't merely a Depression tonic; its multiple plot line was half-comic, half-serious. It was a fast-paced, energetic, and the first musical not to shrink away from the fact that a Depression was going on. The film is an odd, and oddly successful, fusion of the real with the fantastic.
