Editorial Reviews

Leonard Maltin
"Michael Schelle knows what to ask, when to listen, and how to follow up on a thought raised by an interviewee. That's why this book is so valuable."
Screenwriter, Ed Wood, The People vs. Larry Flynt - Scott Alexander
"Terrific! Schelle is extremely prepared and articulate-and he coaxes fabulous interviews from his subjects. For once, composers are truly appreciated: They come across as smart, funny, and quite opinionated. This is a book that needed to be written. It sheds light on one of the least discussed but most important aspects of motion picture art."
Screenwriter, Ed Wood, The People vs. Larry Flynt - Larry Karaszewski
