Wrongful title
19 July 2006 | by mistSee all my reviews

Howcome there's NEVER any live footage from the making of a Clint Eastwood film? This documentary is titled FROM PAGE TO SCREEN - most of it is interviews with the actors, with the director and clips from the film. Towards the end of it, you meet the author and the screenplay writer, but no other people. The title suggests that you will follow the story from book: through rewriting; production- & costume design; casting; photographer & director; editing and music - but NO, nothing like that. Stils from the making and mostly of them on Clint Eastwood himself. The title should have been THOUGHTS & IDEAS from the film.

I'll give it 1 point. This documentary gave me NOTHING.
