Item description for Robert Frank: One Hour by Robert Frank...
C'est vrai! (One Hour) is a single-take of Robert Frank and actor Kevin O'Connor walking and riding in the back of a minivan through lower Manhattan. Shot between 3:45 and 4:45 p.m. on July 26, 1990, it appears to document a journey, but this little and little-known book, first issued by Hanuman in 1992, reveals it to have had a script (by Frank and his assistant, Michal Rovner) and enough actors (27) and crew to fill two pages of credits. Frank also acknowledges that a conversation heard in a diner is written by Mika Moses, but that Peter Orlovsky's crucial plot-turning lines, intercepted by Frank roughly halfway through the hour, in front of the Angelika Cinema on Houston Street, are "total improvisation." C'est Vrai is published as a part of a long-term program to re-issue all of Frank's works; the film will also be issued as a DVD within Robert Frank: The Complete Film Works.

A script of fine arts Jul 1, 2008
What is this little book? It is scripts of a 3-act drama. Acts are separated by two sets, about 10 snapshots of the drama. The scripts are nicely composed, pleasant to read. The snapshots looks like real life. But it does not worth $16. I got it for one dollar from lib book sale.
