by Steve Chibnall

This text covers the genre of British crime cinema from early classics like They Made Me A Fugitive, to acclaimed recent films such as Face and Lock, Stock, and Two Smoking Barrels. Bringing together work from some of the leading writers on British popular film, and including interviews with key directors Mike Hodges (Get Carter) and Donald Cammel (Performance), the text follows the progress of the crime film from its first flourishing during the black market Britain of the 1940s, through the more relaxed whimsy of 50s classics like The Lavender Hill Mob and The Ladykillers, to the resurgence of the gangster cult in the late sixties, and contemporary incarnations in films such as Shallow Grave, Shopping, and Face. Embracing both overlooked B-movies and acknowledged classics such as Brighton Rock and The Long Good Friday, contributors trace the influence of the Hollywood gangster picture on its British counterpart, discussing the effect of film censors hostility, and assessing the crime films relationship to the British New Wave.
