Description
The Joyce Fierro reader reports span the years 1973-1980 and encompass 2 linear feet. The collection contains story synopses and reader reports prepared by Fierro based on material submitted to 20th Century- Fox. The reader reports provide story synopses and analysis of the production viability for a wide range of potential source materials. They are an important preliminary step in the process studios use to select new properties from the large number of dramatic and literary submissions they receive. The reports are based on screenplays, novels, treatments, and magazine articles. Most contain at minimum a brief synopsis accompanied by a page of comments and suggestions. The material is arranged chronologically, with some two dozen files each holding around 50 to 60 reports.
