Location London
London's Film Locations Uncovered
Mark Adams

5 3/4" x 8 1/2" • 176 pages • color photos, maps
ISBN 9781566565394 • paperback • $17.95

London is one of the hottest spots in the world for film locations. Its history, architecture and famous landmarks have provided a backdrop for some of the most memorable cinematic moments in film history.

From much loved movies of the 1940s and 1950s such as The Blue Lamp, Passport to Pimlico and The Lavender Hill Mob, through the 1960s and films such as Alfie, Blow Up and A Hard Day's Night, up to contemporary movies like Lock Stock and Two Smoking Barrels, Notting Hill and About a Boy, the city has seen it all. In a special chapter, the book also reveals how parts of London have even "doubled" as other locations—Vietnam in Full Metal Jacket, Moscow in GoldenEye and Ruislip Lido as the North Atlantic in A Night to Remember.

Accompanied by locator maps, comprehensive biography boxes and Blue Plaque information, this vibrant and fascinating guide leads you round London's numerous visually and historically evocative locations. It is the ultimate companion for anyone with an interest in London's buzzing film business, whether they be a visitor to the capital or an armchair movie-buff.

Mark Adams is a film journalist and former Head of Programming at the Nation Film Theatre and Deputy Director of the London Film Festival. He has written for a number of trade magazines including Variety, Moving Pictures International and The Hollywood Reporter and is the author of Movie Locations: A Guide to Britain & Ireland, (Boxtree, 2000). He lives in Stoke Newington in North London and his favorite London-set movie is Passport to Pimlico.
