The Unknown 1930s: An Alternative History of the British Cinema 1929-1939
I.B.Tauris, Jan 12, 2001 - Performing Arts - 288 pages
A group of film historians chart a map of 1930s British cinema. They reassess the films, stars, genres, and directors omitted from accounts of the decade, and they evaluate its forgotten and recently discovered films. The book includes assessments of the British shocker and the British musical, popular 1930s genres, and views of cinema and national identity.
