4.0 out of 5 stars a mixed bag, 18 Mar 2008
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Gainsborough Pictures (Rethinking British Cinema) (Paperback)
This as the description indicates is an anthology.Essays by different authors on many aspects of Gainsborough Studios.It is not a narrative story by one author so the results are mixed.The majority of the essays are entertaining and informative.However there are a couple of chapters which for want of a better expression are quite barmy.The one which goes into the sexual implications of Arthur Askey gave me a bigger laugh than i ever got from any of Askey's films.There is also at the end a useful appendix from Dennis Gifford containing details of all films made by the studio betwen 1924 and 1950.So despite the odd glitch i found this to be extremely interesting and worth a read.
