Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The strangest aspect of this otherwise absorbing study is the heading of Chapter 9.For some reason the author decides to call British film noir,morbid films.Now i know that maybe at the time this term wasnt so generally used but he is the only person i know who has called them morbid.When this book was written there was far less in the way of British film studies.thankfully books like this have now corrected the situation.Interesting to see how so many distinguished critics were so wrong in their assessment of films which are now regarded as clasics.the funniest being the appellation of D for Disgusting awarded to that very tame British film noir No orchids For Miss Blandish.,by that doyen of film ctitics ,Dilys Powell.
