The 1930s were among the most prolific periods of British film- making, stimulated by the Cinematograph Act of 1927 that required a quota of films shown in Britain to be genuinely British. This volume of eleven essays looks at what was going on in cinema beyond the high-profile work of Korda, Hitchcock and Grierson, exploring topics including audience preferences, the thrillers or 'shockers', the films of Conrad Veight, and the horror film actor Tod Slaughter.
