Overview

Beginnings of the Cinema in England,1894-1901 Volume 5: 1900

Describing in detail one of the most inventive periods in the history of English cinema, the volumes in this celebrated series are already established as classics in their field. Each volume details the highlights of a single cinematic year, including details of production, manufacturers of equipment, dealers, and exhibitors. This is augmented by numerous carefully chosen illustrations and a comprehensive filmography of English films, fiction and nonfiction, for the year. Particular attention is also paid to the ways in which the cinema of other countries affected the English industry. Volume 5 is edited and introduced by Richard Maltby.
