5.0 out of 5 stars Tight Little Studio, August 4, 2002
Michael Samerdyke (Big Stone Gap, VA USA) - See all my reviews
This review is from: Ealing Studios: A Movie Book (Paperback)
This is a fascinating book. If you only know Ealing Studios for comedies such as "Kind Hearts and Coronets" "The Lavender Hill Mob" and "The Ladykillers," this book opens up the whole Ealing output from about 1939 to 1957.
Not only does Barr discuss the classic Ealing comedies, but he puts them in their context in the studio's output, and he shows how the studio's output changed over time regarding the pressures and changes that British society went through in those pivotal decades.
This book is "the rise and fall of Ealing Studios" but in an artistic, not financial, sense. It gets one to think about what movies say about "national character" yet remains enjoyable and jargon-free.
