- London in film
Londonhas been used both as a filming locationand as a film settingmore times than almost any other city in the world, at least outside of the USA.Fact|date=August 2007 These have ranged from historical recreations of the Victorian London of Charles Dickensand Sherlock Holmes, to the romantic comedies of "Bridget Jones's Diary" and "Notting Hill", by way of crime films, spy thrillers, science fictionand the " swinging London" films of the 1960s.
Because of the dominant role played by the city in the British media, the number of British films set in London is huge. It has also been used many times in American films, and often recreated on a
London in the
Elizabethan Erahas often been portrayed in films, including " Fire Over England" (1937), " The Private Lives of Elizabeth and Essex" (1939), and "Elizabeth" (1998). Much of " Shakespeare in Love" (1998), a comedy involving Shakespeare in a fictionalised romance, was set around the original Globe Theatre, as was Laurence Olivier's 1944 "Henry V".
Tudor periodhas also been shown in other films, including the 1966 film of Robert Bolt's play "A Man for All Seasons", the 1990s adaptation of "Orlando" and various versions of Mark Twain's " The Prince and the Pauper".
"Cromwell" (1970) is one of the few films to show the city during the
English Civil War, but several have been set during the subsequent restoration of the monarchy under Charles II. These include " Nell Gwynn" (1937), "Forever Amber" (1947) and " Stage Beauty" (2003). The 1995 film "Restoration" incorporates both the Great Plague and the Great Fire of 1665-66.
Late 18th and early 19th century London has been seen in a number of films, including "
Lady Hamilton" (1941), " Lady Caroline Lamb" (1972), " A Bequest to the Nation" (1973), " Princess Caraboo" (1994), "Sense and Sensibility" (1995), and the various versions of " The Scarlet Pimpernel".
Several 1960s films showed a grimier, more realistic depiction of 18th century London, including "
Where's Jack?" (1968), based on the true story of highwayman Jack Sheppardand crime boss Jonathan Wild.
One of the most popular images of the city is the Victorian era of
Charles Dickens, Jack the Ripperand Sherlock Holmes. There have been almost 200 films based on the novels of Charles Dickens alone, beginning with the silent short film "Death of Nancy Sykes" in 1897. The most memorable of these are probably the musical "Oliver!" and the two David Leanfilms of "Oliver Twist" (1948) and "Great Expectations" (1946). Other film adaptations include "David Copperfield" in 1935 and 1969, " Nicholas Nickleby" in 1947 and 2002, "The Pickwick Papers" in 1952 and "Little Dorrit" in 1987. There have also been many versions of Dickens' " A Christmas Carol", the best known of which is probably the 1951 Alastair Sim film "Scrooge".
Many films have also been made of the
Sherlock Holmesstories by Arthur Conan Doyle. Basil Rathboneplayed Holmes in a series of American films from 1939 to 1946, with London recreated in Hollywood at Twentieth Century Foxand later Universal Studios. Other notable Holmes films which have strongly featured London backgrounds and locations are " Young Sherlock Holmes" (1985), Billy Wilder's " The Private Life of Sherlock Holmes" (1970), and the comedies " The Adventure of Sherlock Holmes' Smarter Brother" (1975) and " Without a Clue" (1988), as well as innumerable TV movies.
Holmes also dealt with the notorious
Whitechapelserial killer Jack the Ripperin " A Study in Terror" in 1965 and " Murder by Decree" in 1978. The Ripper was also featured in "Pandora's Box" (192] ), " Jack the Ripper" (1958), " Dr. Jekyll and Sister Hyde" (1971), " Hands of the Ripper" (1971), " From Hell" (2001) and several versions of " The Lodger", including Hitchcock's silent film of 1926.
Much of the action in the
Bram Stokernovel " Dracula" takes place in London, although several film adaptations have set it elsewhere. One notable exception is " Bram Stoker's Dracula" (1992), directed by Francis Ford Coppola.
Other films set in Victorian London include the 1945 version of "
The Picture of Dorian Gray", " Victoria the Great" (1937), " Sixty Glorious Years" (1938), " The Mudlark" (1950), " The Wrong Box" (1966), " The Assassination Bureau" (1968), "The First Great Train Robbery" (1978), " Topsy-Turvy" (1999), " An Ideal Husband" (1999), " Shanghai Knights" (2003), the 1956 and 2004 versions of " Around the World in Eighty Days", and the black-and-white film "The Elephant Man" (1980), based on the life of Joseph Merrick.
Other British cities, such as
Edinburgh, or locations in other countries, are now often used for period films instead of filming in London itself. " From Hell" (2001), " The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen" (2003) and Roman Polanski's 2005 film of "Oliver Twist" all recreated Victorian London in Praguein the Czech Republic.
EdwardianLondon has been depicted in several films, notably the Ealing comedy " Kind Hearts and Coronets" in 1949, the Merchant Ivory E.M. Forsteradaptation "Howards End" (1992) and the biopic " Young Winston" (1972).
Wartime London has featured in many films, with "
The Man Who Loved Redheads" and "Zeppelin" (1971) among those set during the First World War. The 1943 film " The Life and Death of Colonel Blimp" covered 40 years in the city, including the Edwardianera, the First World War and the Second World War. Several others made during the Second World Waritself, featured London locations, including " Millions Like Us" (1943) and "Waterloo Road" (1944). The Blitzfeatured prominently in the Ealing drama " The Bells Go Down" (1943), and in Humphrey Jennings' drama-documentary " Fires Were Started" (1943). The latter featured real firemenrecreating scenes from the bombings. At the same time, a number of London-set films were being made in Hollywood, like " Waterloo Bridge" (1940), "Mrs. Miniver" (1942) and "Forever and a Day" (1943). The latter followed several generations of owners of a London house until 1943. Later films set in the city during World War II include " The Man Who Never Was" (1955), " I Was Monty's Double" (1958), "Battle of Britain" (1969), "Hanover Street" (1979), "Hope and Glory" (1987), " Shining Through" (1992) and " The End of the Affair" (1999), as well as some low-budget Italian-made war films like "Stukas Over London" (1970) and " From Hell to Victory" (1979).
The 1950s has been recreated in several films including "84 Charing Cross Road" (1987) and "Shadowlands" (1993). The 1960s has proved particularly popular with film makers in recent years, especially for crime films like "Buster" (1988), "Scandal" (1989), "
The Krays" (1990), "Honest" (2000) and " Gangster No. 1" (2000). " Withnail and I" (1987) economically recreated the Camden Townarea in the 1960s.
Ealingcomedies of the 1940s and 1950s made particularly good use of locations in the city. "Hue and Cry" (1947) and " Passport to Pimlico" (1949) were memorably set in the ruins and bombsites of post-war London. In the 1950s " The Lavender Hill Mob" made extensive use of London locations, as did the dramas " The Blue Lamp" and " Pool of London", while " The Ladykillers" used King's Cross Station and its surrounding marshalling yards as the backdrop to its story.
Many other comedies have used locations in the city, some of the best known being "
The Ghosts of Berkeley Square" (1947), " Doctor in the House" (1954), "The Horse's Mouth" (1958), "Bedazzled" (1967), " Brassed Off" (1996), " Billy Elliott" (2000) and " Bend It Like Beckham" (2002).
With new developments in music, cinema and fashion, London found itself the centre of youth culture in the 1960s. The image of "
swinging London", partly a creation of "Time" magazine, helped to fuel a production boom in the British film industry throughout the decade. The Beatlesmade memorable use of locations in the city in "A Hard Day's Night" (1964), and a huge number of other London-set films followed. These included " The Pumpkin Eater", " The Knack...and How to Get It", "Darling", "Arabesque", "Kaleidoscope", " Georgy Girl", " Morgan!", "Alfie", " Blowup", " I'll Never Forget What's 'Isname", "Casino Royale", " Poor Cow", " Up the Junction", "Bedazzled", " To Sir, with Love", " The Jokers", "Otley", "Wonderwall", " Salt and Pepper" and " The Italian Job", all in 1964-1969.
The city has often been used as the backdrop for romances like "Indiscreet" (1958) with
Cary Grantand Ingrid Bergmanand "A Touch of Class" (1973), and has become popular for romantic comedies in recent years. This is at least partly due to the television and film writer Richard Curtis, who has written some of the most successful British films of recent years — " The Tall Guy" (1989), " Four Weddings and a Funeral" (1994), "Notting Hill" (1999) and " Love Actually" (2003), all set or partly set in the city. The films follow the awkward love lives of largely upper-middle class characters (aside from "The Tall Guy", always including one played by Hugh Grant).
Curtis has been criticised for pandering to the American market by playing to the
stereotypeof the English as posh, socially awkward eccentrics. This hasn't stopped the films generally being a huge success in the American and British cinema box office charts. Other films which have followed in Curtis's footsteps include " Sliding Doors" (1998), " Martha, Meet Frank, Daniel and Laurence" (1998), "About a Boy" (2002), "Wimbledon", and the American movie "What a Girl Wants" (2002). "Londinium" (2001) used locations in Berkeley Square, Mayfair, Hyde Park, Primrose Hill Parkand at Waterloo Station.
Woody Allen's "
Match Point" (2005), uses a very up-market view of the city to reflect the upper class lives of the protagonists, including locations in Notting Hill, Belgravia. Chelsea, St James Park and Tate Modern.
Alfred Hitchcockprobably started the fashion for using London landmarks for spy films, starting with "Blackmail" in 1929, which was set entirely in the city and finished on the dome of the British Museum. Many of his other thrillers followed a similar pattern, including " The Man Who Knew Too Much" (both the 1934 and 1956 versions), "The 39 Steps" (1935), "Sabotage" (1937), "Foreign Correspondent" (1940), "Stage Fright" (1950) and " Frenzy" (1972). London has since featured in many other thrillers, including "Sapphire" (1959), " Bunny Lake is Missing" (1965), "The IPCRESS File" (1965), "The Spy Who Came in from the Cold" (1965), " The Deadly Affair" (1966), "Arabesque" (1966), " The Black Windmill" (1974), " The Whistle Blower" (1987), "The Fourth Protocol" (1987), " Blue Ice" (1992), " The Innocent Sleep" (1995) and briefly in "" (1996). This trend was spoofed in the films "Otley" (1968) with Tom Courtenay, and more recently in " The Man Who Knew Too Little" (1997) with Bill Murrayand the Austin Powersfilms. Anthony Minghella's film "Breaking and Entering" (2006) with Jude Lawis named also a Romantic drama.
Landmarks featured in some of these films include the
Royal Albert Hall, Westminster Abbeyand Trafalgar Square. Both " Night of the Demon" (1957) and "The IPCRESS File" (1965) feature scenes filmed in the famous reading room at the British Museum. The 1978 version of "The Thirty-Nine Steps" features a climax on the clock face of Big Ben, an idea borrowed from the 1943 Will Haycomedy " My Learned Friend". A similar scene features in the 2003 Jackie Chanfilm " Shanghai Knights".
Several American thrillers have also produced mangled versions of London's geography, including "
Twenty-Three Paces to Baker Street" (1956), " Midnight Lace" (1960) and " The Mummy Returns" (2001), which features a chase across Tower Bridgeon a double decker busand several scenes inside the British Museum. The 1944 version of " The Lodger" also features a scene by Tower Bridge, although the film was set several years before it was built.
Britain's most famous spy,
James Bond, generally spends little time in London, other than to receive his orders from his boss 'M'. However, some of the films do feature locations in the city. These include "On Her Majesty's Secret Service" (1969) in which George Lazenbyas Bond visits the College of Armsand "For Your Eyes Only" (1981), in which Roger Mooreexperiences a hair-raising helicopter flight over the Docklands area. In the more recent Pierce Brosnanfilms, the Secret Service's headquarters are identified as being the new MI6building on the River Thamesat Vauxhall. The 1999 film " The World Is Not Enough" opens with an extended boat chase from the MI6 building down the river to the Millennium Dome, while in " Die Another Day" (2002) Bond visits a secret base in a disused Underground station, and makes a rare trip to his club Blades. The 1967 version of "Casino Royale" makes extensive use of London locations, including 10 Downing Street, Whitehall, Trafalgar Square(with Nelson's Columnreplaced by a flying saucer) as well as the Changing of the Guardoutside Buckingham Palace.
London's underground railway system, known as "the Tube", has featured in several films. The plot of the 1998 film "
Sliding Doors" hinges on whether Gwynneth Paltrow's character catches a particular Tube train or not. " Bulldog Jack" (1934), "Manhunt" (1941) and "The Good Die Young" (1954) all include chase sequences across underground tracks.
A number of horror films have also used the subterranean network of tunnels as an atmospheric location, most notably the
John Landishit " An American Werewolf in London" (1981), which contains a famous scene set in Tottenham Court Road tube station, and the 2004 film "Creep". The eerie 1973 horror " Death Line" stars Donald Pleasenceas a Scotland Yard detective who traces a series of murders to cannibals living in the network's tunnels.
Excavations on the Underground unearthed an ancient alien spacecraft in "Quatermass and the Pit" (1967), and dormant dragons in "
Reign of Fire" (2002).
James Bondfilm " Die Another Day" features a secret MI6facility in a fictional disused Underground Station called Vauxhall Cross. Another fictional station, Hobbs Endfeatures in the 1967 science fictionfilm " Quatermass and the Pit". " Shaun of the Dead" features the fictional Crouch Endstation.
Other films to have featured the Underground include "
Passport to Pimlico" (1949), " Georgy Girl" (1966), " The Fourth Protocol" (1987), " Hidden City" (1988) and " Tube Tales" (1999). The makers of the children's film " The Boy Who Turned Yellow" (1972) managed to persuade London Underground to paint a tube train and large parts of Highgate Station a lovely shade of Yellow!
A rare recreation of the network in the
Edwardianera featured in the adaptation of Henry James's "The Wings of the Dove" in 1997. The London underground of the 1920s is also recorded in Anthony Asquith's silent classic "Underground" (1928), while the 1969 film "Battle of Britain" shows the tunnel network converted to provide shelter for Londoners during the Blitz. Aldwych tube station, formerly on a branch of the Piccadilly Line, has been used as the location for many films and television productions, especially since the branch and station closed in 1994 and the platforms have been left intact making it suitable for filming and photography purposes, due to the absence of a regular train service. A 1970s tube train permanently is based at the station and heritage rolling stock can be brought in for filming.
Nigel Kneale's " Quatermass" films and television serieshelped to popularise London as the setting for science fiction stories. " The Quatermass Xperiment" (1955) ends with Professor Quatermass cornering an alien monster in Westminster Abbey, while " Quatermass and the Pit" (1967) begins with an alien space craft being discovered during the construction of a new London Undergroundstation. The John Wyndhamnovel " The Day of the Triffids" was made into a film in 1962 which also features scenes in London, while the much-derided 1985 film "Lifeforce" involved vampires from space taking over the city.
The 1950 thriller "
Seven Days to Noon" featured a scientist who threatens to destroy London with a nuclear bomb, and was notable for its scenes of the city's evacuated and deserted streets. Despite the great difficulties involved in achieving this, the feat was repeated for the horror film " 28 Days Later" in 2002, which begins with the hero waking from a coma and wandering across a deserted Westminster Bridge.
Another nuclear threat was explored in "
The Day the Earth Caught Fire" (1961) which has many notable scenes in London, including the Thames running dry. It also includes a lot of scenes inside the old Express Building on Fleet Streetand Arthur Christiansen, the recently retired editor of the " Daily Express", effectively plays himself.
Things to Come" (1936) and "The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy" (2005) begin with the city being destroyed, by war and alien attack respectively, while the 2004 horror comedy " Shaun of the Dead" is set in the city during a zombie attack.
The 1966 movie "Daleks — Invasion Earth 2150 AD", based on the "
Doctor Who" story " The Dalek Invasion of Earth" from 1964, is set in part in a future version of London, which has been nearly destroyed by alien invasion. FuturisticLondon is terrorized in the 2006 film "V for Vendetta" by a mysterious, masked anarchistwho wishes to destroy the fascistgovernment. The film was based on the graphic novel" V for Vendetta". In " Children of Men" (2006), the London of 2027 is a grim place, full of refugees, armed policemen and exploding bombs. Locations used include Tate Britain, Battersea Power Station, the Mall and Admiralty Arch.
Historic periods in the city's underworld have been portrayed in a small number of films. Examples include "
Where's Jack?" (17th century), "The First Great Train Robbery" ( Victorian era), " Chicago Joe and the Showgirl" ( World War II) and " The Krays" (the 1960s), while " 10 Rillington Place" (1971) recreated 1940s London, filming in the actual street where John Christiecarried out his infamous murders.
Other films have evoked London's underworld in the modern era, including "Robbery" (1967), "Performance" (1970), "Villain" (1971), "Brannigan" (1975), "
The Long Good Friday" (1980), "Mona Lisa" (1986), " Face" (1997), " Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels" (1998), "" (1999), "Snatch" (2000), " Sexy Beast" (2000) and "Layer Cake" (2004).
The other side of London
A number of films have depicted the underbelly of the city away from the familiar tourist sites. Examples of these include "
Up the Junction", "Nil by Mouth", "Dirty Pretty Things", and two out of every three films directed by Mike Leigh. The East Endmeanwhile, was shown in "The Man Who Knew Too Much" (1934), "Waterloo Road" (1944), " It Always Rains on Sunday" (1947) and "A Kid for Two Farthings" (1955), among others.
The 1968 documentary "The London Nobody Knows", presented by
James Mason, attempted to show some unfamiliar aspects of the city, as did Patrick Keiller's 1994 documentary "London".
Other films have tried to use less familiar locations in a new way. The 1995 version of "Richard III", starring
Ian McKellen, which is set in a fictional 1930s fascist version of England, makes imaginative use of London locations such as St Cuthbert's church, St Pancras chambers (the old Midland Grand Hotel), the University of London's Senate House, and the two Gilbert Scott power stations — Bankside serving for the Tower and the decrepit Battersea Power Stationas the setting for the final battle scenes. Terry Gilliam's 1985 Orwellian fantasy "Brazil" also used the cooling towers of the same power station as a location, as did Michael Radford's 1984 film version of George Orwell's novel "1984".
London Kills Me" (1991) portrays the city's immigrant and drug subcultures in the early Thatcher years, in a similar vein as " My Beautiful Laundrette" (1985).
Breaking and Entering", a 2006 romantic drama, by Academy Award-winning director Anthony Minghella, shot and set in King's Cross, a blighted, inner-city neighbourhood of London, examines an affair which unfolds between a successful British landscape architectand a Bosnian woman – the mother of a troubled teen son – who was widowed by the war in Bosnia and Herzegovina.
London has been a popular location for children's (and especially Disney) films over the last 40 years. The animated features "Peter Pan" (1953), "
One Hundred and One Dalmatians" (1961) and "Basil, the Great Mouse Detective" (known in North America as " The Great Mouse Detective") (1986) were all set in the city, as were "Mary Poppins" (1964) and " Bedknobs and Broomsticks" (1971). These, however, were all filmed in the U.S..
In more recent years "The Parent Trap" (1998 version), "
Winning London", " The Great Muppet Caper" and the 1996 live-action remake of " 101 Dalmatians" all used actual locations in the city, as did the 1975 Disney comedy " One of Our Dinosaurs is Missing", which was largely set around the Natural History Museumin the early 20th Century. " The Muppet Christmas Carol" (1992) was set in Victorian London, but largely used Shepperton Studios. The film " Melody" (1970) (also known as SWALK) was filmed in and around Lambeth and Vauxhall and reunited Mark Lesterand Jack Wildafter their appearance in "Oliver!".
Harry Potterfilms also feature some London locations. The London Zoo, King's Cross station, and Leadenhall Market( Diagon Alley) are among those used.
Stormbreaker", the first novel in the bestselling Alex Riderseries by Anthony Horowitz, was turned into a film in 2006. It features locations in London such as Hyde Park, Piccadilly Circus, and the Science Museum. The film also features several action sequences in the city, including a horse chase through central London and the main characters fighting on the rooftop of a skyscraper.
"Hey kids, let's put on a show!" The immortal (or at least lastingly sprightly)
Cliff Richardwas, briefly, a genuine movie star with three successful musical comedies in the early 1960s. The first of these, "The Young Ones" (1961), was set in London. Cliff, The Shadows, and his other chums need money to save their youth club, so they set up a pirate radiostation to generate publicity and put on a show. They sing! They dance! They wear brightly-coloured tapered slacks! Robert Morleydoes martial arts! Cliff's second hit, "Summer Holiday" (1963) also deserves a mention, because although most of the action takes place driving across Europe, it has a starring role for a red London Routemasterbus.
The success of some of these 1960s films helped to make up for "
London Town", Britain's first Technicolormusical, which was an embarrassingly high-profile flop in 1946.
"Mary Poppins" (1964) is memorable for its famous songs, ("A Spoonful of Sugar", "Chim-Chim-Cheree", "
Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious"), technical excellence (notably the scene combining live action and animation) and one of the worst accents in the history of cinema. Dick Van Dyke's mangling of a cockney accent is painful to hear.
Also in 1964,
Audrey Hepburnstarred in "My Fair Lady", the film of the musical of the George Bernard Shawplay "Pygmalion". George Cukor's decision to award the role of Eliza Doolittle to Hepburn was perceived by many as a snub to Julie Andrews, who had played the part to great acclaim on Broadway. In the event, Andrews won an Oscar for "Mary Poppins" while Hepburn was not nominated. This is another film with some famous songs, including "Wouldn't it be Loverly", "I Could have Danced all Night" and "Get Me to the Church on Time". Marni Nixon's voice was used in place of Audrey Hepburn's for the songs.
Half a Sixpence" (1967), professional cheery cockney Tommy Steeleplays Arthur Kipps, a cockney who unexpectedly comes into some money, in a musical version of H.G. Wells's novel " Kipps".
"Oliver!" (1968), the musical based on "
Oliver Twist", includes the songs "Food, Glorious Food", "Consider Yourself" and "You've Got To Pick A Pocket Or Two". Two more Dickens stories turned into musicals were " A Christmas Carol" (filmed as "Scrooge" in 1970) and " The Old Curiosity Shop", which became " Mr Quilp" in 1975.
The musical adaptation of "Goodbye, Mr. Chips" with
Peter O'Tooleand Petula Clarkmade use of several London locations, including the dining room at the Savoy Hoteland the Salisbury pub in the heart of the West End.
"Quadrophenia" (1979) draws its soundtrack from the album of the same name, a
rock operaby The Who. It tells the story of Jimmy, a disaffected teenager, taking his scooter to Brightonfor the August bank holidaywith a group of Mods, and taking part in on of the notorious 'battles' between Mods and Rockers.
Punk, one of London's notable contributions to
pop music, is the subject of " Sid and Nancy" (1986), a biopic of Sid Vicious, bassist with the Sex Pistols. Gary Oldmanstars as Vicious. Also see the punk-rockumentaries directed by Julien Temple, the first being band manager Malcolm McLaren's take on 'his' invention of punk in his " The Great Rock 'n' Roll Swindle" and the more recent return volley by the estranged band members in " The Filth and the Fury".
The South London
reggaescene is notably represented in "Babylon" (1980).
SpiceWorld" (1997) is a Spice Girlsvehicle rushed out to cash in on their success. It failed to gain critical acclaim.
Victorian London was based in 2007's musical Sweeney Todd.
