Details

Ealing Revisited offers a new look at the films and history of Ealing Studios, best known as the producer of famous film comedies such as The Lavender Hill Mob (1951), Kind Hearts and Coronets (1949) and The Ladykillers (1955). Yet there is more to Ealing Studios than those famous comedies, and this book draws together some of the leading experts on Ealing and British cinema to explore the history of Britain's best loved film studio.

Tying in with the BFI's major retrospective of Ealing Studios in November/December 2012, the book presents a closer look at the known and unknown elements of Ealing, its films and their sometimes unsung creators. This new approach explores what has gone unexplored, or unspoken, in popular and academic histories of the studio, and considers the impact that Ealing has had on British cinema and society from the 1930s to the present day.
