Independent Producers

ANGLO-AMALGAMATED

Ever-expanding agglomeration of small producers set up in 1945 by Stuart Levy and the sainted Nat Cohen. Started off making b-list crime fillers, often bankrolling the Merton Park (qv) series. More renowned flicks included Tommy Steele musicals, Poe adaptations in association with Roger Corman’s AIP, and, infamously, Peeping Tom. But of course, it’s the early Carry Ons which we most remember being heralded by that crouching bloke holding a giant metal gyroscope in just his pants. Engulfed by EMI in ’69.
