OVER THERE – Hollywood In Britain is the first comprehensive record of made-in-Britain B-films featuring Americans on both sides of the camera. It provides a fascinating and unique record and discussion of significant – and otherwise – British second features boosted by Hollywood stars and filmmakers who were then seeking post-WW2 cinema careers rather than being forgotten or, possibly even more depressingly, ending up stuck in routine made-for-television programmes.
The author, Alan Frank, has written over a dozen books on film. He has been reviewing films in the British national press, in magazines, on radio and online for many years. In 2018, he was the first ever recipient of Darkfest’s Tod Slaughter “Lifetime Achievement” Award.
