Reviews

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Classic text on auditioning and acting Read this book and you will never again watch movies or television in the same way. Shurtleff analyzes how actors use guideposts , such as relationship, conflict, humor, discover, opposites. It's systematic, logical, convincing. A guide not only for those who want to becomes actors (Shurtleff says Don't! ) but even more for those who admire great acting and wonder how it is achieved. Negative: It's a short book, but even so there's evidence of padding, many blank pages, an unnecessary foreward. This book could have been a magazine article.
