Product description


Which '70s hamburger-themed musical climaxes with Cliff Richard piloting a hovercraft through the canals of Birmingham? In which film did Alfred Hitchcock want to cast Max Bygraves as the murderer? Which '60s sexploitation flick augments its footage of topless birds with dying chickens, Barry Cryer and wrestler Mick MacManus? It's all in "TV Cream's Anatomy of Cinema". For some reason, most books on cinema tend to fall into two categories - sombre guides to the acknowledged classics of cinema or snap-together, fan-baiting cash-ins on the latest "Star Wars", "Lord of the Rings", "Tarantino" ready-made cult. The time has come for a book which delves into the rest of cinema's sprawling underbelly, lifting the lid on those odd films that crop up on telly at two-thirty in the morning and shedding new light on the familiar old Bonds, Trons and rom-coms. And this is it.

Neither a dry, overly reverent tome, nor a wafer-thin slice of opportunistic sneering, "TV Cream's Anatomy of Cinema" will caper nimbly between the twin chasms of solemnity and sarcasm, offering an irreverent but genuinely celebratory journey through filmic terrain both familiar and bizarre, mainstream and esoteric, in the warm and witty style for which the TV Cream website has become famous. Attractively presented with colour illustrations, box-outs and more, "TV Cream's Anatomy of Cinema" will be a grab-bag of choice, informative and entertaining morsels on every aspect of filmdom.
