An incidental pleasure of watching a film is what it tells us about
the society in which it is made. Using a sociological model, The
British working class in postwar film looks at how working-class
people were portrayed in British feature films in the decade after
the Second World War. Though some of the films examined are well
known, others have been forgotten and deserve reassessment.
Original statistical data is used to assess the popularity of the
films with audiences. With its interdisciplinary approach and the
avoidance of jargon, this book seeks to broaden the approach to
film studies. Students of media and cultural studies are introduced
to the skills of other disciplines, while sociologists and
historians are encouraged to consider the value of film evidence in
their own fields. This work should appeal to all readers interested
in social history and in how cinema and society works. -- .
