    Budd Schulberg’s Academy Award–winning screenplay, updated as a stage drama for modern audiencesFirst performed in 1988 and again on Broadway in 1995, Budd Schulberg and Stan Silverman’s stage version of On the Waterfront may represent the purest incarnation of his classic story. Produced forty years after the movie swept the Academy Awards, the subtly modernized stage play was a call to arms for a new generation. With this rendition, Schulberg and Silverman hoped to reach young people who seemed detached from the dehumanizing effects of poverty and the exploitation of society’s most vulnerable. Set in the 1950s and featuring original protagonists Terry Malloy and Father Pete Barry, On the Waterfront continues to stand as a masterful and uniquely American tragedy. This ebook features an illustrated biography of Budd Schulberg including rare images and never-before-seen documents from the author’s estate.

    Highly detailed and accurate, you will find yourself in the middle of General Buford's skirmish line as he tries to halt the Confederate advance into Gettysburg, you will feel the anguish and hell of war - of the slaughter that took place in the wheat field. You will live the heroism of Picket's doomed charge and hear the immortal words that President Lincoln delivered in his consecrating address some four months later. No matter your loyalties, Gettysburg will have your heart pounding with its thunderous action, high adventure, and suspense. "Here are the fatigue, the despair, the pain, the screams, the deafening cannon plowing through human ranks, death, and dismemberment. Sometimes the politicians are heard, more often the generals and officers and foot soldiers. One would swear that a newspaper reporter with cassette recorder in hand was dashing around the battlefield in the thick of it." - AudioFile
