Pictures at a RevolutionThe 'Revolution' will be televised documented. Oscilloscope Laboratories and Specialty Films are teaming up to develop and produce a feature-length documentary based on Mark Harris' 'Pictures at a Revolution,' it was announced yesterday.

The critically-acclaimed 2008 book, subtitled 'Five Movies and the Birth of the New Hollywood,' chronicles the production and release of the five very different 1967 Best Picture Oscar nominees: 'The Graduate,' 'Doctor Doolittle,' 'Bonnie and Clyde,' 'Guess Who's Coming to Dinner' and 'In the Heat of the Night.' Harris, a film writer and columnist for Entertainment Weekly magazine, uses these films' disparate stories to vividly capture a time that ultimately gave way to the a golden age of American filmmaking the following decade.
