Film Follows the Flag

Film Follows the Flag

Cultural and economic relations between the British film industry and Hollywood

(p.66) 3 Film Follows the Flag
Culture Matters

Jonathan Stubbs

Manchester University Press

Jon Stubbs engages with the complex relationship between the British and American film industries on multiple levels, demonstrating their dynamic but highly asymmetrical interaction through history, the resulting energetic cultural dialogue between the two nations, and the ways in which economic interests and government policy have influenced cultural representation. By examining the ways in which the national film industries grew intertwined in the interwar period, the impact of the First World War on Anglo-American film relations and alliance politics, and the postwar protectionist policies and internationalization of the movie business, Stubbs analyzes the ways in which the long unequal relationship between the US and UK film industries has nevertheless left the nations financially and culturally entangled.
