Michael Armstrong
The Screen Plays

Michael Armstrong is creating history by being the first film-maker to publish his entire screenwriting output. With the original uncut screen plays in print for the first time ever and peppered with a mixture of wildly entertaining anecdotes, astounding behind the scenes revelations, creative and educational insights and brutal "no holds barred" honesty, these books are guaranteed to provide a completely new kind of reading experience while offering a unique insight into the movie industry. Starting from his first professional screen play written in 1960 when he was only fifteen and which he subsequently directed in 1968, the books will ultimately encompass a career that has spanned over fifty years. The books will include not only those screen plays that made it onto a cinema screen but, for the first time ever, all those that didn't - and the reasons why.
