TRUSTED BY THESE WELL KNOWN BRANDS AND HUNDREDS MORE
A number of film studios have been based in Borehamwood over the years, making films of significance. The earliest major success was in 1933, when Charles Laughton gave his memorable performance in ‘The Private Life of Henry the Eighth’.
It was a big money spinner in the States and enabled producer Alexander Korda to obtain the investment to open his London Films at Denham.
The ambitious EMI - Elstree also looked bound for big things in 1969 - when the English actor/writer/director
Bryan Forbes took over as head. Hopes were high that it would become a kind of British Hollywood - by emulatingthe traditional studio system in making a slate of commercial films to rival the US products.
Alas, Forbes resigned after two years, citing financial difficulties and lack of investment. The studio nevertheless turned a profit thanks to two much-loved films: ‘The Railway Children’ and the ‘The Go-Between’.
Things picked up in the 1970s and 80s when the Star Wars and Indiana Jones films were made at Elstree.
