Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
London has been a popular place to film movies for decades because of its variety of settings, great atmosphere, easy access to a number of picturesque locations, and large pool of professionals and studio space. As a result, film-inspired tourism has grown as travelers seek out sites from their favorite films and television shows. In this handy guide, which updates a 2007 publication and contains locations for 200 additional films, Latin teacher and film buff James methodically takes readers through London, street by street, offering detailed notes on actors, films, and action. Each district of London is given a chapter, with indexes of films and streets so readers can better locate specific details. A tourist wandering through West Brompton can easily detour to Cremorne Wharf, where David Warner, in a gorilla suit, rode a stolen motorbike into the Thames in the 1966 film Morgan. VERDICT An information-packed guide; recommended for film buffs.
