Dwight Taylor
HOT SPOT [later released as: I WAKE UP SCREAMING] (1941) Revised Final Screenplay by Dwight Taylor
Twentieth Century Fox. Dwight Taylor (screenwriter) Steve Fisher (source) Hollywood: 20th Century Fox, 1941. Vintage original film script, quarto, studio printed wrappers, brad bound, 142 pp. Bottom of distribution slip torn off (as usual), JUST ABOUT FINE in NEAR FINE wrappers with very minor creasing at yapped edges. Steve Fisher's novel Hot Spot is one of the classics of American crime fiction, and it was here adapted by Dwight Taylor to become one of the first major examples of film noir. With its intense black night time cinematography, it can be argued to be the first film noir to convey the distinctive expressionistic, haunted look that came to be so closely identified with these films. After initially releasing the film under the title HOT SPOT, Fox retitled it to the more pulpy I WAKE UP SCREAMING. [Attributes: Soft Cover]
Bookseller: Walter Reuben, Inc., ABAA, ILAB [West Hollywood, CA, U.S.A.]
