Typical Men : The Representation of Masculinity in Popular British Cinema Paperback
Part of the Cinema and Society series
"Typical Men" provides a history of masculinity in British films from World War II onwards.
It explores in detail the changing nature of the dominant male cultural types: the debonair gentleman; the Byronic hero; the Angry Young Man; the delinquent; the maladjusted veteran; villains; and comic fools.
The text contains fresh interpretations of key films including "In Which We Serve", "They Made Me a Fugitive", "Saturday Night and Sunday Morning" and the "Bond" films.
It also provides stimulating commentary on the performances of important male stars such as James Mason, Kenneth More, Sean Connery, and Michael Caine.
