HEMDALE FILM CORPORATION

Not strictly British, this company, but David Hemmings provided one half of the initial impetus and the name (the other being producer Jon Daly III), and in its early incarnation – ie before it hit paydirt with the likes of The Terminator, River’s Edge and Platoon – it produced many a quirky Brit-oriented flick. Shelley Winters played a psychotic child molester in decidedly non-classic horror Whoever Slew Auntie Roo? More wholesome was Lionel Jeffries’ delightful ghostly romp The Amazing Mr Blunden. Peter Sellers clocked up the performance of his career in the downbeat underground entrapment nightmare The Blockhouse, while Ken Russell covered Ann-Margret in Heinz for the ever-daft film of Tommy. A film production company with a very broad brief, then.
