"Beginnings of the Cinema in England belongs beside such founding works as Rachael Low's History of the British Film and Denis Gifford's British Film Catalogue. It is an essential work in the literature of the film."-- "Film Quarterly"
"Essential reading . . . a labour of love that will intrigue any cineaste."-- "Film Quarterly"
"Film studies for years to come will be indebted to Barnes for having immeasurably enriched the literature on his subject."-- "Quarterly Review of Film Studies"
"This remarkable set of books should be in every university library in the country, and on the shelves of every film historian."-- "Viewfinder"
"A triumphant finale to a major achievement in social as well as cinema history. . . Barnes' chronicle is meticulous and wonderfully illustrated. Cumulatively, it has shown this period was arguably British cinema's most inventive."-- "Sight and Sound"
"The eagerly awaited publication of John Barnes' fifth volume marks the final instalment of this groundbreaking series. . . . It seemed for a while that it might never see the light of day. That it has done so, and that the other books in the series have been re-issued, is testimony not only to John's tenacity, but to the foresight of Exeter University Press. . . . The series has become the standard reference text for English cinema of this period, with its combination of technical, biographical and contextual information. . . . As well as providing reliable and comprehensive reference material for film scholars these books are eminently accessible and entertaining. They are a significant contribution to the canon of film scholarship and a fitting testimony to a lifetime's dedication to the cinema."-- "Screening the Past"
