Censored Screams The British Ban on Hollywood Horror in the Thirties

Censored Screams The British Ban on Hollywood Horror in the Thirties

Author: Tom Johnson Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 10/06/2021

As Dracula (1931) and Frankenstein (1931) ushered in the golden age of horror films in the United States, studios and distributors were faced with a major problem in their number one overseas market: the British Board of Film Censors (BBFC) were demanding extensive cuts, enforcing age restrictions, and banning outright many of Hollywood's horror movies. The issue most often used to limit the showing of horror films was their unsuitability to children. With that in mind, the BBFC developed specific film codes - the A (for adults) and the H (for horrific), both of which restricted viewing to those 16 or older - and then applied them liberally. This work examines how and why horror films were censored or banned in the United Kingdom, and the part these actions played in ending Hollywood's golden age of horror.

The Christopher Lee Filmography All Theatrical Releases, 1948-2003

Author: Tom Johnson, Mark A. Miller, Jimmy Sangster, Veronica Carlson Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 30/10/2009

The career of towering, handsome actor Christopher Lee has stretched over half a century in every sort of film from comedy to horror. He has assumed such diverse roles as the Man With the Golden Gun, Frankenstein's monster, Fu Manchu, Sherlock Holmes, and Dr. Catheter (from Gremlins 2 ). From Corridor of Mirrors in 1948 to Star Wars: Episode II - Attack of the Clones in 2002, this reference book covers 166 of Lee's theatrical feature films in detail. Each entry provides all production information (including year of release, studio, running time, and location), full credits for cast and crew, a synopsis of the film, and a critical analysis of the film and Lee's involvement, with a detailed account of its making and commentary drawn from some thirty hours of interviews with Lee himself. Each entry also places the film within the context of Lee's career and discusses the director and other significant figures. Two appendices list Lee's television feature films and miniseries and Lee's short films, with brief credits and Lee's role in each. The work concludes with an afterword by Christopher Lee. Photographs from the actor's private collection are included in the title.
