Format: Paperback
Charles Barr's study of Ealing Studios has become as timeless as some of the films it analyses.
The reading of Ladykillers as a paradigm of British Politics in the the post Second World War years (with Alec Guinness's band as labour and the old ladies as the tories) is crisp and incredibly to the point. Barr also had the coherence of looking back at some of his first edition's comments and review them if proven inappropriate, something that does not come easy to film historians and critics. Highly recommended.

Format: Paperback
Although there is of course useful material in this book, readers have to be alert to those moments when they need to leap ahead a paragraph, for Charles Barr is in the habit of detailing plots. He also has the habit, from which a critic should shy, of writing in the first person.

Rightly, he gives credit to that highly enjoyable film by Walter Forde, Cheer, Boys, Cheer (1939) as the precursor of this great series of comedy and other films. When will this film, which has disappeared from television, be made available again? Even now, some might be startled at the spanking received by Nova Pilbeam from a man into whose motor-car she later crashes. "Look what you've done to my rear!" he shouts. "Look what you did to mine," she replies.
