Stella Adler is one of the early founders of Actors Studio (NY, USA)! Many theatre and movie actors and actresses have beenin her classes for a while ... Maybe Stella Adler is a bit old these days but her methods which is influenced by Stanislavski’s Method Acting, was very popular for 3-4 decades (1940-1970s)...

One of the best acting books of all time. Easy to follow, Stella builds on her fundamental techniques with practical activities. ER
