The continental connection

German-speaking émigrés and British cinema, 1927-45

Tobias Hochscherf

Published by Manchester University Press

  • Investigate matters such as reasons for emigration, how the émigrés were received in Britain, what kinds of contribution they made to British film, and to provide both textual analysis of key personnel and film texts
  • Major appraisal of the contributions of German-speaking émigrés to British cinema from the late 1920s to the end of World War II
  • An important contribution to scholarship in an area increasingly seen as significant in charting the history of British cinema
  • Research is admirably wide-ranging, embracing biographies, reviews, government papers and much more, including the archives of both films and related journals
  • Skilfully organised in the way that it makes excellent use of case studies, both of individual films.
