This day in history:
On September 30th, 1936, Dr Leslie Burgin, Parliamentary Secretary of Trade, performed the grand studio opening of Pinewood Studios, near the village of Iver Heath in Buckinghamshire. The first in was Herbert Wilcox, completing London Melody with Anna Neagle; portions of it had already been filmed at Elstree Studios before a fire there. The first film to be made entirely at Pinewood was Talk Of The Devil, directed by Carol Reed.

This enabled several pictures to be filmed simultaneously, and ultimately Pinewood achieved the highest output of any studio in the world. read more
