The Golden Age of British Film and Theatre
British cinema during the 1940s enjoyed a golden age as wartime film-makers found a new freedom to reflect the national mood, producing works of unparalleled ambition and boldness.
Audiences turned to Ealing comedy films, escapist melodrama – often from Gainsborough Pictures – and World War II propaganda.
