Portrait

Walter Mycroft (1891-1959) was a film journalist and Britain's most prolific pre-war film producer, working on over 200 films. Vincent Porter is Emeritus Professor of Mass Communications at the University of Westminster. He is the coeditor (with James Curran) of British Cinema History (1983) and coauthor (with Sue Harper) of British Cinema of the 1950s: The Decline of Deference (2003).

Pressestimmen

What Mycroft tells us about Elstree life and production politics is often valuable. But the icing on the cake is his writing style: old fashioned, tart and melodramatic at times, at others absurdly pretentious...Porter was wise not to iron out such kinks, and his introduction is exemplary, examining Mycroft and his Elstree adventures carefully and judiciously, and encouraging us to do the same. Sight and Sound, November 1, 2006 Film journalist Walter Mycroft (1891-1959) was Britain's most prolific prewar film producer. Written mainly in the 1940s, this memoir offers a detailed account of Mycroft's participation in the British film industry during the 1930s. Some of his earlier writings on the aesthetics and business of film production are found in the appendices. Editor Porter (emeritus, U. of Westminster) has also provided an introduction and filmography. Reference and Research Book News, August 2006
