Yoko Tani in London

A fun tour of 1950s West End with international film star Yoko Tani

Travelogue 1959 8 mins


Take a fun whistle-stop tour of bustling 1950s London with French-Japanese film star Yoko Tani. Armed with just her diary and an 8mm home movie camera, Tani races across the Capital, from Kensington Gardens to Tower Bridge, taking in as much as she can in one day. Filmed at the height of her international stardom, Tani had appeared in Nicholas Ray’s The Savage Innocents and opposite Dirk Bogarde in The Wind Cannot Read. This delightful short documentary was filmed in the weeks before she would star in London-based crime drama Piccadilly Third Stop.
