A Backstage Tour of the Oscar-winning Film

April 2007
192 pages
Edited by Jack Morrissey
ISBN 978-1-55704-737-3


"Released to coincide with the May 1 DVD debut of Hollywood's adaptation of the smash Broadway musical, this volume offers a backstage tour of the Oscar-winning film. The text here is brief but solid, including original essays by drama critic Martin Gottfried and music journalist Cheo Hodari Coker, with the book dominated by more than 200 beautiful color pix by top Hollywood shooter David James, along with concept art for sets and costumes. The illustrations are divided into categories of 'The Players' highlighting the all-star cast including Danny Glover, Eddie Murphy, Jamie Foxx, Jennifer Hudson (who took home Best Supporting Actress gold for her portrayal of Effie White), and MTV pin-up Beyonce Knowles; 'The Movie Musical' illustrating the film's story; and a 'Design' section sporting background peeks at its production.

Dreamgirls already has scored on stage and the big screen and should be an equal draw for home viewers on disc, so have a copy of this photo-rich making-of volume on hand to complement your DVD copies. Recommended."
