What Is a British Movie?
It depends on who you ask! For me, a British movie is generally one with a British cinematographer -- easily recognizable by the initials, B.S.C., after his name.
For me, therefore, British movies include "Blind Terror" staring Mia Farrow, "Bunny Lake Is Missing" (Carol Lynley and Keir Dullea, directed by Otto Preminger), "Casino Royale" (Woody Allen, Orson Welles, William Holden, directed by John Huston), "His Majesty O'Keefe" (Burt Lancaster. directed by Byron Haskin), "The Naked Runner" (Frank Sinatra), "The Pirates of Penzance" (Angela Lansbury, Linda Ronstadt), "River Beat" (Phyllis Kirk), "Rulers of the Sea" (Douglas Fairbanks, Jr), "Scream of Fear" (Susan Strasberg), "The Sundowners" (Robert Mitchum, directed by Fred Zinnemann), "That Woman Opposite" (Phyllis Kirk again), "Third Man on the Mountain" (James MacArthur), "36 Hours" (Dan Duryea), "Too Late the Hero" (Cliff Robertson), "West of Suez" (Keefe Brasselle), etc.
All the above movies have American stars, but they are all detailed and reviewed in the book because they all have British photographers.
And the good news is that they are almost all now available on DVD!
