    This volume charts the evolving relationship between the two principal mass media of the period 1920-1960 and explores the creative symbiosis that developed between them. Focusing on two genres - comedy and detective stories - Richards identifies differences and similarities between the two media; compares the experience of film and radio in Britain and America; and looks at how both media presented three mythic figures: Sherlock Holmes, Tarzan and The Scarlet Pimpernel.
