"This book should interest film actors, directors, and scenario writers ... besides several chapters on the possibilities of silent drama it contains what is probably our largest and most accurate collection of drawings illustrating emotional attitudes as portrayed by facial expressions and bodily postures."--New York Herald Tribune. Among the oldest theater arts, pantomime appeared in Greek and Elizabethan drama as well as in burlesque and vaudeville reviews. The author of this book, a veteran acting instructor, presents a well-illustrated analysis of pantomime's extensive variety of emotional expressions. Suggestions range from advice on exercises for maintaining a supple form and achieving specific bodily movements to the use of theatrical accessories and the writing and staging of a pantomime performance. Students, amateurs, and professional actors will find abundant material for refining their craft. Unabridged reprint of the 1927 edition.

224 p. with 196 b/w illustrations
