Original Summary:
"Have you ever picked up a story, theme paper, or magazine article to glance at it, and found your attention held to the very end? How did the writer manage to keep you interested? How writers achieve such effects is the subject of this unusual motion picture. Using a variety of offbeat examples, from a football game to a pair of escaped convicts, this film illustrates three major types of interest - character interest, immediate interest, and result interest. For example, it asks you to consider Miss Gogarty. Is she just a middle-aged teacher - or is she a walking time bomb preparing a disaster for male chauvinists? The way a writer presents her makes all the difference in holding the reader spellbound." - summary from the teacher's guide.
