Early handbook on writing film scripts by a silent-film screenwriter who was credited on over eighty productions. At the time of writing, Beranger was on faculty as USC's film school, and thus the book (as its jacket notes) was "written primarily as a text-book for college students." Breixo Viejo writes in FILM BOOKS: A Visual History that Beranger's "understanding of ... 'dramatic principles,' as well as of other fundamental concepts of screenwriting such as 'motivation,' 'conflict,' and 'treatment,' makes this book a precursor of other important script manuals published since -- such as the best-selling titles by Syd Field, Linda Seger and Robert McKee in recent decades." Rare, especially in the dust jacket.
