Film Europe and Film America - Cinema, Commerce and Cultural Exchange 1920-1939

£6.99

Product description

Winner of the 2000 Prix Jean Mitry. A volume of specially-commissioned essays dealing with the attempts to create a pan-European film production movement in the 1920s and 1930s, and the reactions of the American film industry to these plans to rival its hegemony. The book has an impressive array of top scholars from both America and Europe, including Thomas Elsaesser, Kristin Thompson and Ginette Vincendeau, as well as essays by some younger scholars who have recently completed new archival research.

Andrew Higson has been a member of the Film and Televisions Studies academic staff at the University of East Anglia since 1986, and was made a Professor of Film Studies in 2000. From 1991 to 1998, he was chair of the Film Studies sector; in August 2002, he took over as Dean of the School of English and American Studies.

Richard Maltby is Associate Professor and Head of the School of Humanities at Flinders University, Adelaide. Prior to moving to Australia, he lived in the UK, where he established the Bill Douglas Centre for the History of Cinema and Popular Culture at the University of Exeter, before becoming Research Professor in Film Studies at Sheffield Hallam University.

This is the 1999 Paperback edition of the book published by University of Exeter Press. The condition is fair, the binding is sound and all the inner pages are clean and unmarked. The cover is very slightly scratched in places and the outer corners of the front of the cover are a little bent. The bottom of the front cover is also slightly turned up and the edge of the book is a little grubby in places.
