BRITISH AND DOMINIONS

Venerable filmmaker Herbert ‘Anna Neagle’ Wilcox initiated this majestic-sounding corporation in 1928, which churned out over a hundred lightweight murder mysteries and comedies – many based on West End plays – over the next decade, many of them featuring Dame Anna, natch. Arguably beat Hitchcock to the first British sound film in ’29 with Black Waters. Lancashire Luck, Peg of Old Drury, Rookery Nook, Come Out of the Pantry, Ask Beccles and Thark Turkey Time are the sorts of titles they just don’t come up with anymore.
