NEW ESSAY ON FUNNY FILMS ABOUT THE TUDORS! Check out Bill Robison's new essay, "Blazing Tudorism: Comedy and 'History' on Film and Television" on Susan Bordo's website (scroll down to July 15, 2013). FYI: her book, The Creation of Anne Boleyn, is really good!. And now back to information about our book:
The Tudors on Film and Television is a comprehensive filmography and a historical analysis of Tudor films that provides basic information about production, participants, plot, and provenance for every item included, as well as assessing the aesthetic qualities, historicity, cultural significance, and potential usefulness in the classroom of each. The authors have attempted to list and discuss, to the extent information is available, all films—fiction or non-fiction—which treat the Tudor monarchs and their times. Read more . . .
This website will allow the authors to supplement the material in this book with information about hitherto undiscovered films made through the end of 2011, additional details that may come to light about the films included here, the recovery of films currently believed no longer extant, and new online entries about films made in and after 2012. We also welcome discussion, so please join us. Read more . . .
The book is available for immediate shipping from McFarland and will be available from all other booksellers by March 8, 2013. Note that there are Kindle and Nook versions as well as hard copy.
