BRITISH NATIONAL FILMS

Started in 1934 by J Arthur Rank and a certain Lady Henrietta Yule of Bricket Wood, intended at first as an outlet for “improving” films based on Rank’s methodist principles, latterly filling the coffers with countless vehicles for Arthur Lucan’s Old Mother Riley creation. Rank had trouble getting distribution deals for his films initially, which he solved with the formation of the Rank Organisation in ’37. The rest is gong-bashing history.
