KIRKUS REVIEW

A very careful explanation of the making and launching of a movie, this gives a step by step synchronization of the many phases- and people- involved in one script and makes the business of picture production a much more reasoned (cautious rather than lavish) enterprise than anyone might suppose. Dore Schary produced The Next Voice You Hear was taken with the idea when it appeared in short story form, some time later gambled in his decision to put it on the screen. Hiring a screen writer; putting through the necessary legal research and passing censorship; casting; laying out the shooting schedules; work; cutting; mopping up for the finishing phase and the sneak preview which gave them their first assurance of its success and finally the accolade of acceptance at the Music Hall- these are the main phases of turning out a film- but it's just possible that the general public would rather see than read about one.
