William Faulkner at Twentieth Century-Fox is a scholarly edition of the five screenplays that Faulkner wrote while under contract to Twentieth Century-Fox during the mid-1930s, and another he wrote in the early 1950s. It includes a lengthy introduction that explains exactly what Faulkner did as a screenwriter at Fox while contextualizing his Hollywood labors in a broader genealogy of Hollywood screenwriting and practices of adaptation and collaboration during one of the most important eras of American film history. A brief essay also prefaces each of the screenplays, elucidating their evolution over various drafts and with various co-writers, including Twentieth Century-Fox's Darryl Zanuck. A draft of each of the six screenplays is also produced in full with scholarly annotations. The edition makes available for the first time and in one volume Faulkner's Fox screen writings, and, with its scholarly apparatus, thus makes a valuable contribution to recent scholarship across a number of fields: Faulkner and film; literature and film/adaptation studies; cinematic modernism; and screenplay studies. It also foregrounds Faulkner's many significant collaborators, such as Zanuck and Howard Hawks, and therefore makes an important contribution to the history of Twentieth Century-Fox under Zanuck.

William Faulkner in Hollywood

Here is a major American writer seen in a remarkably new way.

During more than two decades (1932-1954), William Faulkner worked on approximately fifty screenplays for studios, including MGM, 20th Century-Fox, and Warner Bros., and was credited on such classic films as The Big Sleep and To Have and Have Not. The scripts that Faulkner wrote for film--and, later on, television--constitute an extensive and, until now, thoroughly underexplored archival source. Stefan Solomon not only analyzes the majority of these scripts but compares them to the novels and short stories Faulkner was writing at the same time. Solomon's aim is to reconcile two aspects of a career that were not as distinct as they first might seem: Faulkner as a screenwriter and Faulkner as a high modernist, Nobel Prize-winning author. Faulkner's Hollywood sojourns took place during a period roughly bounded by the publication of Light in August (1932) and A Fable (1954) and that also saw the publication of Absalom, Absalom!; Go Down, Moses; and Intruder in the Dust. As Solomon shows Faulkner attuning himself to the idiosyncrasies of the screenwriting process (a craft he never favored or admired), he offers insights into Faulkner's compositional practice, thematic preoccupations, and understanding of both classic cinema and the emerging medium of television. In the midst of this complex exchange of media and genres, much of Faulkner's fiction of the 1930s and 1940s was directly influenced by his protracted engagement with the film industry. Solomon helps us to see a corpus integrating two vastly different modes of writing and a restless author, sensitive to the different demands of each. Faulkner was never simply the southern novelist or the West Coast ?hack writer? but always both at once. Solomon's study shows that Faulkner's screenplays are crucial in any consideration of his far more esteemed fiction--and that the two forms of writing are more porous and intertwined than the author himself would have us believe. Here is a major American writer seen in a remarkably new way.

This annotated reference provides information on the copyright status of over 20,000 features, short films, television programs, and documentaries. The United States copyright system allows a film to fall into the public domain if a renewal is not filed in the twenty-eighth year after its release. Such public domain films may be used by anyone for free, but finding out which films are or are not still under copyright can be expensive and tedious. This guide alleviates that expense and drudgery by including all motion pictures registered for copyright in the 1950s, as well as 500 that were received after 1959. The book also includes an overview of the copyright system and sample certificates. All renewals of copyrights are noted, allowing readers to clearly see which items are or are not in the public domain.
