RARA-AVIS: Narration

Tue, 27 Jan 1998 16:28:23 -0500 It is interesting that when movies have adapted first person narration
stories, especially detective fiction, when the movie uses first person
they tend to have the narrator talk to someone or something.

Double Indeminty - Fred MacMurray talking into a dictaphone to Edward G
Murder My Sweet - Dick Powell to the cops.

In actuality when the film makers can they shy away from narration. Radio
detective shows on the other hand thrived on first person. And these shows
did it in a present tense I am talking the audience as it happens. Which
could be funny if one thinks about it. Walking down the street shouting
narration like a mad man.
