Anthology Tribute to the best of Hollywood's Dramatic Monologues
Though a traditional theatrical trope, the monologue was considered problematic in a visual medium such as the cinema. Nevertheless it remained a potent dramatic tool and successive generations of filmmakers sought to re-vitalize and re-deploy it so as to connect with modern audiences. As a result, some of American cinema's most powerful dramatic monologues occur in the movies, stylized and performed so as to adapt the traditional to the contemporary. Sensational Movie Monologues, by published film scholar and independent digital publisher Robert Cettl (the e-author of Film Tales and Australian Film Tales), is a textual compilation of 50 of cinema's greatest monologues, complete with background information on the movie and character delivering the monologue. Here, for the first time, the devout home theatre enthusiast can read the text to some of cinema's most impressive, unusual, impactful and emotional movie monologues in a concise e-edition.
