The first substantial overview of the British film industry with emphasis on its genres, stars, and socioeconomic context, British National Cinema by Sarah Street is an important title in Routledge's new National Cinemas series. British National Cinema synthesizes years of scholarship on British film while incorporating the author' 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.

From the Back Cover:

British National Cinema traces the development of the British film industry, from the Lumiere brothers' first screening in London in 1896 through to the dominance of Hollywood and the severe financial crises which affected production companies such as Goldcrest, Handmade Films and Palace Pictures in the late 1980's and 1990's. Exploring the relationship between British cinema and British society, Sarah Street uses the notions of 'official' and 'unofficial' cinema to demonstrate how British cinema has been both 'respectable' and 'disreputable' according to the prevailing notions of what constitutes 'good cinema'.

About the Author:

Sarah Street is a Lecturer in Film and Television Studies at the University of Bristol.
