Description - British Cinema of the 1950s by Ian MacKillop

This re-evaluation of what has until now been seen as the most critically lacklustre period of the British film history covers a variety of genres, such as B-movies, war films, women's pictures and theatrical adaptations, as well as social issues which affect film-making, such as censorship. It includes fresh assessment of maverick directors: Pat Jackson, Robert Hamer and Joseph Losey, and even of a maverick critic, Raymond Durgnat. There are also personal insights from those individually implicated in 1950s cinema: Corin Redgrave on Michael Redgrave, Isabel Quigly on film reviewing and Bryony Dixon of the BFI on archiving and preservation.
