Summary
"Considerable scholarship has focused on the 'Great Fear' that swept through Hollywood during the McCarthy era and on the Soviet Union's cinematic campaign against Western imperialism. British Cinema and the Cold War fills a significant gap in the international story, uncovering British cinema's contribution to Cold War propaganda and to the development of a popular consensus on Cold War issues, adding to the emerging revisionist interpretation of Britain's Cold War policies in the 1940s and 1950s." "Shaw analyses key films of the period, including High Treason, which put a British McCarthyism on celluloid; the fascinatingly ambiguous science fiction thriller The Quatermass Experiment; the court-room drama based on the trial of Hungary's Cardinal Mindszenty, The Prisoner; the dystopic The Damned, made by one of Hollywood's blacklisted directors, Joseph Losey; and the CIA-funded, animated version of George Orwell's classic novel Animal Farm. The result is a deeply probing study of how Cold War issues were refracted through British films, compared with their imported American and East European counterparts, and how the British public received this 'war propaganda'."--BOOK JACKET
