About the Book

The three decades following WWII are considered the golden age of the British thriller film, when characters like James Bond provided audiences with a whole new world of mystery, danger, excitement and suspense. For the first time, the extensive output of British thrillers from 1950 to 1979 is covered in one volume—a detailed reference suitable for film scholars and casual browsing.

Themed chapters cover a total of 845 films including spy thrillers, mystery thrillers, psychological thrillers, action-adventure thrillers, and crime thrillers. Within these chapters, films appear chronologically, each with a synopsis/review. Additional information provided for each film includes production companies and alternate British and US titles, and the work includes eight useful appendices.
