In lieu of an abstract, the first paragraph of the essay follows:

A preproduction script of a film offers a unique opportunity for the critic to probe the creative process of filmmaking. Where script and finished film are consonant, one may admire the acuity of the scriptwriter's visual imagination; where script and film are dissonant, one may observe the struggle for actualization.
