3 of 3 people found the following review helpful By Mrs. V. Bradley TOP 1000 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 28 Jan. 2002
Format: Paperback
If you are a movie buff, a researcher or just interested in the history of the movies then this is a book for you. The book is easy to read, contains a wealth of information and almost all British film studios from the early days onwards get a mention. I am currently researching the work of my uncle and godfather, Maurice Elvey, and my father Fred V Merrick (MEs younger brother) and have found this book has expanded my knowledge of studios in which they worked. My only criticism is that I would have liked a little more detail on some of the studios.

1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By C. FULLER TOP 50 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 10 Aug. 2014
Format: Paperback
An informative publication but with only smaller sections on the smaller and yet prolix studios. I think the timing was such that less was known about the likes of say Merton Park or Southall when the book was written. If the book were to be updated today they would have much bigger entries.
The book is of course excellent on the big studios.
Plenty of images and a must for any film fan and should be read in conjunction with any of the Chibnall books on films.
