The legacy of migrs in the British film industry, from the late era of silent film to the immediate post-World War Two period, has been largely neglected in the scholarly literature. Destination London is the first book to redress this imbalance. Focusing on areas such as exile, genre, technological transfer, professional training and education, cross-cultural exchange and representation, it begins by mapping the reasons for this neglect before examining the contributions made by migr directors, actors, screenwriters, cinematographers, set designers, and composers to the British cinema. It goes on to assess the particular cultural and economic contexts of transnational industry collaborations in the 1920s, artistic cosmopolitanism in the 1930s, and anti-Nazi propaganda in the 1940s.
