As an admirer of the British cinema, I thoroughly enjoyed those who were able, i.e. alive at the time of filming in 1985 to contribute. To say that they had only minor entities commenting on the studio in the film is false. Dirk Bogarde was not a minor star.
The film was an attempt to follow the entire history of the Arthur Rank phenomenon and so naturally could not go into great depth on many films. I especially enjoyed seeing John Mills, Betty Box, Dirk Bogarde and Norman Wisdom on camera relating their various experiences at the studios.
Many of the wonderful films and their producers and directors were touched upon with insightful anecdotes and stories. I was not disappointed, but indeed wished the film was three times longer to be able to give us even more information. It is a fun documentary and highly recommended.
