British films of the 1970s

First Edition

Paul Newland

Published by Manchester University Press

  • Newland offers fresh insights into key British films of the decade, such as Carry On Girls, O Lucky Man!, Radio On, That'll Be the Day, The Shout and The Long Good Friday
  • This book develops innovative new ways of approaching film history through an innovative range of critical methodologies
  • This book recasts the 1970s in British cinema as a period not just of pessimism but also of opportunity, experiment and ambition
  • This book resists interpreting films in terms of concepts of high culture/art and low culture, but rather finds rich thematic links across a disparate range of films.
  • This is the first sole-authored book on British films of the 1970s which examines filmic representations of Britishness and places them within a wide range of historical contexts
