This 1962 program is an illustrated exploration of how stage plays can be translated to the screen, with particular attention to the work of stage, film and television director Sidney Lumet and discussion with Yale University literature professor John Gassner and film commentator Peretz Johnnes. Among the themes discussed in this energetic roundtable are how film can reveal more of the playwright's intentions than the theater, how the camera becomes a leading actor, how film time differs from stage time, and the way that the theater audience's focus is flexible whereas on screen the focus is controlled by the director. 60 mins.
