Brian McFarlane is Adjunct Professor at Swinburne University and the author of more than twenty books and hundreds of articles. His latest book examines the lasting appeal of Brief Encounter, made in 1945, and still one of the most-loved British films. People born decades after its first appearance are adept at picking up references to it, whether a black-and-white scene in a much later film or a passing joke about a bald man in a barber’s shop. Mores have undoubtedly changed, for better or worse, but that essential moral choice has never lost its power. Brian is a regular visitor to the AFIRC and has kindly donated many of his titles to our collection.
