Abstract:This is a profile of Durban-born Noel Langley (1911-1980), currently of interest as a playwright, novelist and screenwriter who mainly in the interwar years made it as a South African success story in Britain and the United States. With the recent centenary of his birth as a marker, he is in need of revival. Other associated writers and performers impinging on his career are mentioned as evidence of a generation now neglected, yet abundantly successful in their day. Bibliogr., notes, ref., sum.
