Guide to British Cinema


"This book is a guide to Britain's cinematic output, including entries on major British actors, directors, and films from 1929 through the present day. The volume also highlights major cycles such as Gainsborough melodrama, the Ealing comedy, and the British new wave, as well as less-clearly defined cycles, including the vein of dark melodramas that characterized the British cinema from 1945 to 1950."
