The study and appreciation of the life, works and times of Arnold Bennett

{Piccadilly – Edited by John Shapcott

The German fit director E. A Dupont’s film version of Arnold Bennett’s Piccadilly was released in 1929 to critical acclaim.  Today it is recognised as one of the last great silent movies. 

John Shapcott’s critical edition of the novel on which the film is based explores the intertwining of book and film to asses Bennett’s place as a novelist in cinema history.
