A simply fascinating and well documented history 8 Oct 2002
By Midwest Book Review - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Transatlantic Crossings: Rethinking British Cinema by Sarah Street (Reader in Screen Studies, University of Bristol, England), is a meticulously researched and scholarly study of the distribution and showing of British films in America, from the 1920s to the present day. From the hurdles filmmakers had to leap in order to compete with the allure of Hollywood, to case studies of breakout successful favorites such as "Goldfinger" and "Four Weddings and a Funeral", Transatlantic Crossings is a simply fascinating and well documented history which is very highly recommended for film buffs and students of American/British cinematic history. Transatlantic Crossings is also available in hardcover.
