The Language of Show Biz: A Dictionary.
Sergel, Sherman Louis, Ed.
This dictionary of the language of show biz provides the layman with definitions and essays on terms and expressions often used in show business. The overall pattern of selection was intended to be more rather than less inclusive, though radio, television, and film terms were deliberately omitted. Lengthy explanations are sometimes used to express nuances of a word or phrase. Terms which have a number of different definitions, each of equal validity, are also included. Contributing editors include Alan Alda, Claudia Cassidy, Alvin Deutsch, Irvin Feld, Lewis Funke, Sheldon Harnick, Vance Johnson, F. Beverly Kelley, John Kenley, Philip Lang, Jerome Lawrence, Robert Lee, Harold Minsky, Ben Pearson, David Rogers, Harvey Sabinson, Jack Schlissel, Richard Seff, Sammy Smith, and Sam Zolotow. A form for contributing remarks or comments is provided at the end of the dictionary. (HOD)
