The language of Hollywood resonates beyond the stage and screen because it often has inherent drama-or comedic effect. This volume contains a combination of approximately 100 expertly researched essays on words, phrases and idioms made famous by Hollywood along with the stories behind 30 or so of the most iconic-and ultimately often used-quotes from films. There are also sidebars that focus on other ways the entertainment world has changed language. For instance, stories behind stars whose names have been used for drinks (hello, Shirley Temple) or roses (there are ones named after Elizabeth Taylor and Judy Garland, among others). And, a sidebar on William Shakespeare's unique contribution to the English language. Totally Scripted by Josh Chetwynd entertains and educates on the origin of words, lines and phrases that have become a part of our everyday lives. For those in and outside of the entertainment business it is a wonderful read. -- Gary Sinise, Oscar-nominated and Emmy-winning actor (Forrest Gump, Apollo 13, CSI: NY) Josh Chetwynd has created a furiously fast, funny, fantastic read. Lovers of language will revel in his painstakingly-researched etymology (Or is it entomology? No, wait, that's insects!) and fans of movies, television and Broadway will enjoy revisiting the films, shows and plays that have had such a lasting impact on our culture. Totally Scripted is filled with information, humor and enough "Oh, wow!" moments to keep the pages turning almost on their own. Josh's biggest challenge will be meeting the inevitable demand for Volume II. -- Pat Sajak, Emmy-winning host of Wheel Of Fortune Totally Scripted is a wonderful, insightful read, packed with fascinating anecdotes and knowledge that will delight and inform everyone who loves the stage, film and TV. -- Jason Moore, Tony-nominated and feature film Director (Avenue Q, Pitch Perfect) A page turning delight, and a must-read for all lovers of movies, pop culture and the English language...as well as a treasure trove of trivia to win bar bets! -- Bob Gale, Oscar-nominated screenwriter for Back to the Future
