The Arts in the 1970's: Cultural Closure?

By Bart Moore-Gilbert | Go to book overview

distribution and exhibition. Yule (1989) provides a fascinating narrative account of the period focused on the exploits of one key individual, David Puttnam. Bennett and Woollacott (1987) on Bond films, Jordan (1983) and Medhurst (1992) on ‘Carry On’ films and Pirie (1974) on horror films all provide good discussions of popular cinema, though the latter only goes as far as 1973. On independent and avant-garde cinema, see Blanchard and Harvey (1983), Ellis (1982), Harvey (1986), Stoneman and Thompson (1981) and Le Grice (1977).
