Interwar London after Dark in British Popular Culture

English | 2022 | ISBN: 3030949370 | 211 Pages | PDF | 3 MB

This book explores the representation of London's nightlife in popular films and newspapers of the interwar period. Through a series of case-studies, it analyses how British popular media in the 1920s and 1930s displayed the capital after dark. It argues that newspapers and films were part of a common culture, which capitalized on the transgressive possibilities of the night. At the same time both media ensured that those in authority, such as the police, were always shown to ultimately be in control of the night.
