Shakespeare in Love is a romantic comedy for the 1990's, set in the 1590's, telling the witty, sexy story behind the creation of the greatest love story of them all - Romeo and Juliet. Young Will Shakespeare is the up and coming playwright of the time, but has been disastrously struck by the bane of the writer's life - writer's block. What Will needs is a muse - and she appears in the form of the beautiful (and betrothed) Lady Viola. The path of true love doesn't run smooth for Will, however - Viola is engaged to be married to the insufferable Lord Wessex at the command of Queen Elizabeth

What happens next : a history of American screenwriting by Marc Norman( Book )

18 editions published between 2007 and 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 661 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Screenwriters have always been Hollywood's stepchildren. Yet, popular impressions aside, screenwriters have been central to moviemaking since audiences got past the sheer novelty of seeing pictures that moved at all. Soon they wanted to know: What happens next? Veteran Oscar-winning screenwriter Norman gives us the first comprehensive history of the men and women who have answered that question, from Anita Loos, the highest-paid screenwriter of her day, to Robert Towne, Quentin Tarantino, Charlie Kaufman, and other paradigm-busting talents reimagining movies for the new century. The whole rich story is here: the imposition of the Production Code in the early 1930s and the ingenious attempts to outwit the censors; the dark days of the blacklist that divided the screenwriting community; the rise of the writer-director in the early 1970s; and the scare of 2005 when new technologies seemed to dry up the audience for movies and forced the industry to reinvent itself yet again.--From publisher description
