Britain Can Take it by Anthony Aldgate
Book DescriptionThis work charts Britain's reaction to World War II by examining 13 key films produced between 1939 and 1945, including the work of Noel Coward, George Formby, Leslie Howard and Carol Reed. The book is illustrated with stills from each film, and considers script, reviews and box office returns to place each in its social and political context. It also draws from official documentation - Home Intelligence reports, Mass-Observation files, Ministry of Information papers and British Board of Film Censors archives - to illuminate the relationship between the official propagandists and the film-makers at this time. This revised edition features two new chapters and a filmography.
