A Chorus Of Raspberries

This is the first full-length study of one of the most popular, profitable and persistent genres in British cinema. It redraws the map of British film history by arguing that comedy was the most successful, and important, genre of the 1930s, and that the very qualities which ensured the comedy film's low status are also its particular strengths.

Creating Celluloid War Memorials for the British Empire

The book is a study of the British Instructional Film company and its production of war re-enactments and documentaries during the mid to late 1920s.  It is both a work of cinema history and a study of the public’s memory of World War One.  These films, made in the decade following the end of the war, helped to shape the way in which that war was remembered.
