The age of the dream palace cinema and society in 1930s Britain by Jeffrey Richards ( )

The period between the two world wars is often named 'the golden age of the cinema' in Britain. This definitive and entertaining book on the cinema and cinema-goers of the era is herewith reissued with a new Introduction. Jeffrey Richards, described by Philip French as 'a shrewd critic, a compulsive moviegoer, and a professional historian', tells the absorbing story of the cinema during the decade that produced Alfred Hitchcock's thrillers, the musicals of Jessie Matthews and Alexander Korda's epics. He examines the role of going to the pictures in people's lives during a tough period when, in

Britain can take it : the British cinema in the Second World War by Anthony Aldgate ( Book )
23 editions published between 1985 and 2007 in English and held by 941 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
At the outbreak of the Second World War, all cinemas in Britain were closed. Ten days later, they were opened again as a valuable way of boosting morale and a principal source of recreation for the nation at war. Feature films were not just escapist entertainment; they provided instruction and information, and over the next six years, some 300 feature films and thousands of short films and news reels were produced in what is now seen as British cinema's 'finest hour'. "Britain Can Take It" charts this momentous period through the eyes of thirteen key films. Aldgate and Richards make use of key resources, from scripts and box-office returns to official Home Office documents and censorship archives, to bring these films to vivid life. In telling their stories, the authors also recreate the society, the politics and war-time conditions in which they appeared and flourished. This new edition of "Britain Can Take It" features a new chapter on Launder and Gilliat's 1943 film on women factory workers, "Millions Like Us"

For the authorities in medieval Europe, dissent struck at the roots of an ordered, settled world. It was to be crushed - initially by reason and argument, eventually by torture. Jeffrey Richards examines the wretched lives of heretics, witches, Jews, lepers and homosexuals and uncovers a common motive for their persecution: sexual aberrance

Visions of yesterday by Jeffrey Richards ( Book )
9 editions published between 1973 and 2013 in English and held by 516 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Film is an important source of social history, as well as having been a popular art form from the early twentieth century. This study shows how a society, consciously or unconsciously, is mirrored in its cinema. It considers the role of the cinema in dramatizing popular beliefs and myths, and takes three case studies - American populism, British imperialism, German Nazism - to explain how a nation's pressures, tensions and hopes come through in its films. Examining the American cinema is accomplished by analysing the careers of three great directors, John Ford, Frank Capra and Leo McCarey
Hollywood's ancient worlds by Jeffrey Richards ( )
8 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 503 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Few genres have been subject to such critical scorn as the Ancient World epic. Yet, they have regularly achieved huge box office success.

Geoffrey Richards examines the cultural, social, economical and technological circumstances that dictated the rise and dec

John Ruskin and the Victorian theatre by Katherine Newey ( Book )
12 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 275 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This the first sustained study of the interest of John Ruskin in the theatre of his time. It examines Ruskin's active engagement with and influence on the Victorian popular theatre. Ruskin was an enthusiastic and catholic theatre-goer, enjoying pantomime as much as Shakespeare. Through the lens of Ruskin's discussions of pantomime, melodrama, Shakespearean tragedy, and painting and the stage, Newey and Richards offer a new view of the late Victorian stage focusing on London's West End in its heyday"--
