From the cover: “The 1969-70 annual, in addition to all the usual reference features which make it the only complete review of the cinema year — with full illustrated details of every film generally released during the period, as well as every Continental film shown — this year contains a number of special features of absorbing and vital interest to all moviegoers.
Famous producer Ivan Foxwell contributes his outlook on the question of censorship, the well-known cinema historian William K. Everson reviews the gangster film from the silent days to ‘Bonnie and Clyde’ and beyond, John Mountjoy in a series of interviews with leaders of the cinematic trades unions answers the question as to how one gets into film production, and critic and film writer Ernest Betts explains what the Critics Circle is and what it does. Other features include a review of the year’s cinema openings and closings by Ivon Butler; a long survey of the Italian film by Ralph Stevenson (the first of a series of features by specialist writers about production in various countries); Barrie Wood writing about the short film today; Peter Armitage supplying a complete international round-up of the situation of film production; and Alan Eyles contributing his annual review of the Film on T. V. Together with the other usual features, this year even the amateurs get a few pages to explain themselves!”
