J. Arthur Rank and the British Film Industry

£10.99

Product description

From the description on the back of the book:
"Presiding over the 'golden era' of the British Film Industry, J. Arthur Rank financed movies such as Oliver Twist, The Red Shoes, Brief Encounter, Caesar and Cleopatra and Black Narcissus. Never before, and never since, has the industry risen to such heights.
J. Arthur Rank charts every aspect of the robust film culture that Rank helped to create. Having started out with relatively little knowledge of the cinema, Rank's sponsorship was to bring about astounding progress within the industry. By establishing an organization comparable in size to any of the major Hollywood studios, Rank briefly managed to reconcile and consolidate the competing demands of 'art' and 'business' - an achievement very much absent from today's diminished and fragmented film industry. "

The covers (and a few pages) of this book are worn or dirty in places and there is pencil writing in the top right corner of the first page but otherwise this book is in very good condition.
