One Man's Opinion,
This review is from: England's Secret Weapon (Paperback)
This is not another rehash of the plots and characters but an in-depth analysis of the genres of the Rathbone/Bruce films. The two Twentieth Century-Fox productions
are given their due but the Universal movies are the book's main concern. Breaking the films into three main categories, war-involvement, gothic and female arch-villain, the author takes a detailed look at each. While occasionally being too pedantic the text overall gives a new view of the series.
