Movies International: America's Best, Britain's Finest
By John Howard Reid
Price: $3.99 USD. Words: 145,770. Language: English. Published: May 2, 2011. Category: Nonfiction
British moviegoers love U.S. films. Why? A cinema manager in London's East End told me: "People come to the movies to get lost. They don't want to see Frank Sinatra in a U.K. movie, treading the same dreary streets they live in, day in, day out. They want Frank transported to a magic world, or a different world. That's what Hollywood supplies. British films are too realistic, too down-to-earth."
