In 1950s post-war England, the working classes faced an unappetizing choice between drudgery, degradation, and despair or the materialist blandishments of deadening suburban affluence. Arthur is the prototypical 'angry young man'--outspoken, dissatisfied with the status quo, rebelling against stifling class distinctions--insolent and self-confident, his high wages enable his disdain for following orders and his hard drinking, red-blooded weekends. He is determined to enjoy his freedom as long as he can get away with it, before being trapped by marriage into conformity, surrounded by nappies and rent books in a new housing estate

9 editions published between 1952 and 2007 in English and held by 31 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A highly influential but critically neglected movement in British cinema history, Free Cinema not only re-invented British documentary in the 1950s, but also served as a precursor for the better-known British New Wave of social-realist feature films in the late 1950s and early 1960s. Born in February 1956, when a group, led by critic and filmmaker Linday Anderson, screened their short films at the National Film Theatre, Free Cinema proved so popular that five more programmes followed until 1959, featuring films by young British and foreign filmmakers (container)
