Summary Rockwell was a master humorist with an infallible sense of the dramatic moment. His single-image scenarios represented climatic moments that implied prior and succeeding events in ongoing plots. The authors trace Rockwell's career, explores his fascination with Hollywood, and draw parallels between Rockwell's subjects and those of Hollywood directors, including Lucas and Spielberg.
