Alexander Walker reveals how, for the first time, British cinema achieved a truly national character, with films like Billy Liar, the Beatles musicals, and the James Bond pictures- directors like Ken Loach and Ken Russell- and stars like Michael Caine and Julie Christie.

Yet despite a wealth of exciting new films and talent, by the end of the decade, Hollywood sustained 95 percent of British filmmaking. In tracing these developments--from the sober reality of post-Suez Britain to its consumer boom and new permissiveness-- Walker offers sharp appraisals of this pivotal era in British cinema.For four decades, Alexander Walker was Britains leading film critic and historian, named Critic of the Year three times in the British Press Awards. This is the first volume in his classic trilogy, A History of the Modern British Film Industry, in which he gives us an eloquent, witty, thoroughly uncompromising history of the modern British film industry.
