The article discusses early Lever films as advertisements for the company's product - soap - and as unofficial propaganda for British imperial interests, both at home and abroad. Its particular focus is the 1919 film, Port Sunlight. Lever's expansion of his manufacturing business abroad, the article argues, denotes not only Lever's promulgation of particular Victorian values but also his share in the development of multinational capitalism.
