British National Cinema synthesizes years of scholarship on British film while incorporating the author's fresh perspective and research. Street divides the study of British cinema into four sections: the relation between the film industry and government; specific film
genres; movie stars; and experimental cinema. In addition, this beautifully illustrated volume includes over thirty stills from every sphere of British cinema.
British National Cinema will be of great interest to film students and theorists as well as the general
reader interested in the fascinating scope of British film.
