Reviews

"Kozloff's impressive work on dialogue in U.S. and some British films is often in agreement with French authority Michel Chion. Kozloff has the advantage of very readable prose with an almost encyclopedic knowledge of U.S sound films. . . . She illustrates the importance of both dialogue and sound in the work of many directors, e.g., Orson Welles, Robert Altman, Preston Sturges. She illustrates how dialogue is vital to various genres, providing examples in chapters on Westerns, screwball comedies, gangster films, and melodramas. "--Choice
