Foreword by Christopher Vogler, author of The Writer's Journey.

With this collection of essays exploring the mythic structure of 50 well-loved U.S. and foreign films, Stuart Voytilla has created a fun and fascinating book for film fans, screenwriters, and anyone with a love of storytelling and pop culture.
