Week 4 London on Film: A Cinematic Tour

When London as a subject appears in the movies, it is either quaint, dangerous, swinging, or elegant. Join film historian Max Alvarez for this invigorating first-class voyage through cinema’s love/hate affair with Her Majesty’s capital, from the Hollywood recreations of My Fair Lady to the colorful stomping ground for The Beatles and James Bond.
