Get Carter and Beyond: The Cinema of Mike Hodges by Steven Paul Davies

The premiere biography and reference work on Mike Hodges takes the reader on an in-depth journey through this influential director's career. It explores decades of life in Hollywood and British filmmaking. Included are: a brief view of Hodges' childhood, education, and television work; the making of Get Carter, his first impressions of the novel, writing the screenplay, and casting and shooting in Newcastle; a look at Pulp, and the glamorization of gangsters; the cult '70s sci-fi classic, The Terminal Man; Flash Gordon and Morons From Outer Space, Hodges' big-budget blockbusters; the controversial A Prayer for the Dying; the award-winning Black Rainbow and Croupier; and much more. Here, too, are never-before-published pictures from Hodges' own collection and an introduction by Michael Caine.
