Review:

A comprehensive history of the British film industry from its inception to the present day, with minute listings of the producers, directors, actors and studios behind a century of great British cinema. Brian McFarlane's meticulously researched guide is the most authoritative book yet produced on the people involved in British film. With so many pointless film books on the shelves, it's refreshing to be reminded of the real thing; published in association with the British Film Institute, it is lavishly illustrated with over 140 black and white photos from their incomparable film archive, many of which are published here for the first time. The end result is an invaluable addition to the reference shelf of anyone with an interest in British cinema. McFarlane reminds us what a proud filmic heritage we have on these shores.
