    Abstract

    Focussing on the careers of Paul Robeson and Earl Cameron, this chapter examines a selection of films set in London in the mid-twentieth century. It offers a comparative and textual analysis of the representational spaces these two very different actors inhabited in their films. This approach cuts across traditional chronologies of British cinema history to shed light on dynamic processes of cross-cultural exchange and shifting definitions of black stardom.
