Screenonline in October

Filed under: Screenonline — Michael @ 6:00 pm

The new Screenonline homepage was launched earlier today, with yours truly responsible for two major features.

The first is a survey of the feature film output of the BFI Production Board, with an overview and individual entries on A Private Enterprise (1974) and Anchoress (1993).

The second is a look at the career of screenwriter-producer-director Sidney Gilliat, better known as one half of the longstanding Launder and Gilliat partnership. Geoff Brown wrote the career overview, but I wrote most of the individual entries, including Rome Express (1932), Seven Sinners (1936), Millions Like Us (1943), Waterloo Road (1944), The Rake’s Progress (1945), I See A Dark Stranger (1946), Captain Boycott (1947), London Belongs To Me (1948), The Happiest Days of Your Life (1950), The Story of Gilbert and Sullivan (1953), The Belles of St Trinian’s (1954) and The Green Man (1956).

My other new material this month is a piece on Norman McLaren’s dazzling hand-drawn animation Love on the Wing (1938).
