Abstract:

La 4e de couverture indique : "Malta has served as a beautiful backdrop for films for nearly as long as there has been a film industry. This entry in the World Film Locations series traces the history of Malta on screen, from big-budget blockbusters to modest indie pictures. The locations Malta offers range widely, from grand fortified harbors and stunning cliffs to quaint villages and Baroque palaces. That diversity has enabled the island to double for countless locations, including ancient Troy and Alexandria, as well as Greece, Israel, and other Mediterranean and Middle Eastern regions, while its well-known water tanks have proved to be perfect for shooting ocean scenes. Packed with illustrations, World Film Locations: Malta examines a number of films made in Malta to date, and will be a must-read for tourists, film buffs, and scholars alike."
