Read Off Tablets Like The Flintstones

Showmen, Sell It Hot! Now Available For E-Readers

The March Of Technology continues at Greenbriar. Showmen, Sell It Hot! has just come out in a Kindle edition. My publisher, GoodKnight, just went up with it last week, and from demonstration I've had, it looks great. No matter what kind of E-Reader you use, Showmen will work. All images are high-res and enlarge as well. Amazon has it, of course, but so does I-Tunes, and Barnes/Noble should offer the E-Pub Showmen on their site any day. If you happen to pick up the Kindle Showmen, and like it, by all means leave a review to that effect at Amazon. All of reader reviews so far have addressed the print edition, so any boost for the E-book would be a help. The whole Kindle thing has been something of a foreign language for me, but a couple of books I've read on the format went down easily, and I found the tablet overall to my liking. One thing's sure, like digital projection and streaming movies, it's the future.

eBook if you must, but the printed version is pleasure to read and have around.

While I prefer a printed book to a Kindle version, this is great news indeed -- SHOWMEN, SELL IT HOT! is an essential addition to every film buff's library. The expanded chapter on movie grosses (and critical reception) of The Marx Brothers' movies in itself is worth the purchase, and every chapter is equally fascinating. If you're budget-minded or have simply run out of shelf space, there is no excuse not to purchase this delightful book.

When Bernard B. Brown was in Toronto in 1980 he told me that on THE PHANTOM OF THE OPERA he had Nelson Eddy's sing before a piece of wood. The next day when Eddy heard the playback he said angrily, "You dubbed my voice!" Replied Brown, "No, Nelson. I just added a little timbre."
