Walker's previous volumes, HOLLYWOOD ENGLAND and NATIONAL HEROES, covered the period until 1984. This final volume tells the inside story right up to date of why a nation that produces actors of the calibre of Kenneth Branagh, Daniel Day-Lewis, Hugh Grant, Emma Thompson, Robert Carlyle, Kate Winslet and directors such as Anthony Minghella, Sam Mendes, Stephen Frears, Neil Jordan, Peter Greenaway, Ken Loach and Guy Ritchie cannot sustain a native film industry.
Walker's revelations on the iniquities of National Lottery funding of movies - over £200m to date and hardly a profitable film among those so far produced - have been headline news. Walker relates the extraordinary events of the past two decades years through the individuals, the companies and the studios." -- from book jacket (abridged) Notes: Includes introduction by Joseph Connelly, includes preface and index ISBN: 0752856103 Donation: Bruce Hodsdon Contents: Before the title: The Chinese butterfly -- 1.
