The Big Show looks at the role played by cinema in British cultural life during World War One. Hammond shows how the British film industry and British audiences responded to the traumatic effects of the War, and contends that the War’s significant effect was to expedite the cultural acceptance of cinema into the fabric of British social life.
A companion to UEP’s Grand-Guignol: The French Theatre of Horror (now in its third reprint). London’s Grand Guignol was established in the early 1920s at the Little Theatre in the West End. It was a high-profile venture that enjoyed popular success as much as critical controversy.

Since The Théâtre du Grand-Guignol closed its doors forty years ago, the genre has been overlooked by critics and theatre historians. This book reconsiders the importance and influence of the Grand-Guignol within its social, cultural and historical contexts, and is the first attempt at a major evaluation of the genre as performance.
<p><p><BR>From the authors of the successful <em>Grand-Guignol </em>and <em>London’s Grand Guignol</em> - also published by UEP – this book includes translations of a further eleven plays, adding significantly to the repertoire of Grand-Guignol plays available in the English language.</p><BR><P></p>
