Ever since its inception, British cinema has been obsessed with crime and the criminal. One of the first narrative films to be produced in Britain, the Hepworth’s 1905 short Rescued by Rover, was a fast-paced, quick-edited tale of abduction and kidnap, and the first British sound film, Alfred Hitchcock’s Blackmail (1930), centered on murder and criminal guilt. For a genre seemingly so important to the British cinematic character, there is little direct theoretical or historical work focused on it. The Britain of British cinema is often written about in terms of national history, ethnic diversity, or cultural tradition, yet very rarely in terms of its criminal tendencies and dark underbelly. This volume assumes that, to know how British cinema truly works, it is necessary to pull back the veneer of the costume piece, the historical drama, and the rom-com and glimpse at what is underneath. For every Brief Encounter (1945) there is a Brighton Rock (2010), for every Notting Hill (1999) there is a Long Good Friday (1980).

In the fifties British cinema won large audiences with popular war films and comedies, creating stars such as Dirk Bogarde and Kay Kendall, and introducing the stereotypes of war hero, boffin and comic bureaucrat which still help to define images of British national identity. In British Cinema in the Fifties, Christine Geraghty examines some of the most popular films of this period, exploring the ways in which they approached contemporary social issues such as national identity, the end of empire, new gender roles and the care of children. Through a series of case studies on films as diverse as It Always Rains on Sunday and Genevieve, Simba and The Wrong Arm of the Law, Geraghty explores some of the key debates about British cinema and film theory, contesting current emphases on contradiction, subversion and excess and exploring the curious mix of rebellion and conformity which marked British cinema in the post-war era.

Typical Men is the first history of masculinity in British film from World War II to the end of the 1990s. It explores in detail the changing nature of the dominant male cultural types: the debonair gentleman, the Byronic hero, the Angry Young Man, the delinquent, the maladjusted veteran, villains, and comic fools. Typical Men contains fresh interpretations of key films including In Which We Serve, They Made Me a Fugitive, Saturday Night and Sunday Morning and the Bond films. It also provides stimulating commentary on the performances of important male stars such as James Mason, Kenneth More, Sean Connery, and Michael Caine.

This book looks at aspects of the relationship between British and American cinema covering the period from the First World War until the 1960s. It deals with the ways in which the two industries have sought to intervene in the affairs of the other, and examines how British subject matter drawn from history, literature, drama, biography has had a place in the American film since the earliest days. The history of the British cinema - its institutions and its films - has been closely intertwined with the history of the American cinema since films were first made and viewed in the late 19th century. In many ways it has been a one-sided relationship with Hollywood exerting a powerful influence on the British film industry, shaping the ways in which it set about constructing a national cinema and effectively defining the notion of cinema during its heyday from the 1920s to the 1950s. In other ways, however, Britain has had an influence on American cinema. Occasionally, British films have made an impact in the American market, and actors and directors such as Cary Grant and Alfred Hitchcock have become integral to the history of the American film. In addition to this, Britain through its literature and history has provided a rich source of subject matter for American films, from Sherlock Holmes films in the 20s, horror films in the 30s, to Arthurian epics in the 50s and Shakespeare adaptations in the 90s.
