              British comedy cinema has been a mainstay of domestic production since the beginning of the last Century and arguably the most popular and important genre in British film history. This edited volume will offer the first comprehensive account of the rich and popular history of Bri...tish comedy cinema from silent slapstick and satire to contemporary romantic comedy. Using a loosely chronological approach, essays cover successive decades of the 20th and 21st Century with a combination of case studies on key personalities, production cycles and studio output along with fresh approaches to issues of class and gender representation. It will present new research on familiar comedy cycles such as the Ealing Comedies and Carry On films as well as the largely undocumented silent period along with the rise of television spin offs from the 1970s and the development of animated comedy from 1915 to the present. Films covered include: St Trinians, A Fish Called Wanda, Brassed Off, Local Hero, The Full Monty, Four Lions and In the Loop. Contributors: Melanie Bell, Alan Burton, James Chapman, Richard Dacre, Ian Hunter, James Leggott, Sharon Lockyer, Andy Medhurst, Lawrence Napper, Tim O'Sullivan, Laraine Porter, Justin Smith, Sarah Street, Peter Waymark, Paul Wells

              The Routledge Companion to British Cinema History

              The Routledge Companion to British Cinema History (Hardback)

              Over 39 chapters The Routledge Companion to British Cinema History offers a comprehensive and revisionist overview of British cinema as, on the one hand, a commercial entertainment industry and, on the other, a series of institutions centred on economics, funding and relations to... government, such as the British Board of Film Classification, the National Film Finance Corporation, the British Film Institute, and the UK Film Council. Whereas most histories of British cinema focus on directors, stars, genres and themes, The Routledge Companion explores the forces enabling and constraining the films' production, distribution, exhibition, and reception contexts from the late nineteenth century to the present day. The contributors' mostly empirical and archive-based scholarship, which often draws on insider perspectives of key film institutions, illuminates aspects of British film culture that have been neglected or marginalised (for example, the Watch Committee system, the Eady Levy, the rise of the multiplex, film festivals) and emphasises areas where scholarship has either been especially productive and influential, such as in early and silent cinema, or promoted new approaches, such as audience and memory studies. The book vividly describes a film culture awkwardly torn between art and commerce, the state and the free market, the national and the transnational, and, in recent years, between cinema and television.
