Noel Coward (1899-1973), playwright and actor, personified an elegant, witty and faintly outrageous way of life between the wars. He first achieved fame starring in his own play The Vortex in 1924, which he followed with Hay Fever (1925) and Private Lives (1930). A patriotic vein evident in his stage extravaganza Cavalcade (1931) came into its own with the wartime fim In Which We Serve (1942); from the same period is his classic Brief Encounter (1945). He was also an accomplished cabaret performer, singing at the piano his own lyrics such as 'Mad Dogs and Englishmen (out in the midday sun)'.
