Cocaine is a 1922 British crime film directed by Graham Cutts and starring Hilda Bayley, Flora Le Breton, Ward McAllister and Cyril Raymond. A melodrama – it depicts the distribution of cocaine by gangsters through a series of London nightclubs and the revenge sought by a man after the death of his daughter.

Because of its depiction of drug use, it was the most controversial British film of the 1920s.[1] It was feared by the authorities that it might encourage the spread of narcotics.[2] However, as the film had a clear message about the dangers of using drugs, it was eventually passed by the censors in June 1922 and released in some cinemas under the alternative title While London Sleeps.[3]

The Chinese gangster Min Fu was reportedly based on a real-life criminal Brilliant Chang.[4]
