This boos is a study of British Cinema’s formative years. Between 1918-1928 British film was poised between a Victorian past and a future marked out as American. Examining a cinema inextricably intertwined with notions of theatricality, pictorialism and storytelling, in which the high cultural, middlebrow and popular intersect, this book re-evaluates the little known but interesting and often startling films of the 1920s. Films such as the Blackpool melodrama Hindle wakes, Guy Newell’s Hardyesque meditation Fox Farm, Graham Cutts’s exuberant adaptation The Rat (starring Ivor Novello as a Parisian apache!), Maurice Elvey’s Comradeship, a haunting evocation of lives changed utterly after World War I and Alfred Hitchcock’s early works are all considered afresh within British cultural traditions and are related to a specifically British mode of perception distinct from the norms of European art or popular American cinema.
