Check out Focal Press (now owned by Elsevier). They have a screenwriting
section with lots of titles.

http://www.focalpress.com

Also, "Story" by Robert McKee is a classic. It was featured in the
self-referential "Adaptation".

Since we don't collect much in the way of standard texts on screenwriting,
I'm flipping this e-reference query over to the list for consideration and
advice.
