This is the author’s final draft of the chapter published as Claydon, E. Anna 'Masculinity and deviance in British cinema of the 1970s: Sex, Drugs and Rock ‘n’ Roll in The Wicker Man, Tommy and The Rocky Horror Picture Show' in Newland, P. (ed) Don't Look Now? British Cinema in the 1970s, (Copyright © 2010 Intellect Ltd) pp. 131-142. The final published version is available from http://www.intellectbooks.co.uk/books/view-Book,id=4699/.In this chapter I explore the representations of masculine others in British cinema during the 1970s. Developing my earlier work on masculinity and dejection in 1960s’ British cinema (The Representation of Masculinity in British Cinema of the 1960s, Edwin Mellen, 2005), I shall expand some of my conclusions from that work into considering the role of dejection in an era which seems itself associated with this and related concepts and analyse are series of representations from The Wicker Man (Robin Hardy, 1973), Tommy (Ken Russell, 1975), The Rocky Horror Picture Show (Jim Sherman, 1975) and Jubilee (Derek Jarman, 1978).\ud [Taken from chapter introduction
