We are so thrilled to be able to bring you our film, From Borehamwood to Hollywood: The Rise and Fall and Rise of Elstree, to our website – for free.
When we were making the film, we always intended to make it as widely available as we possibly could, within the wishes of those who granted us the rights to use their content and our contributors. We are very pleased to say that we are able to bring the film online, exclusively to our website here, for free viewing.
The Elstree Project is continuing to record oral history interviews with veterans of the six studios from Borehamwood and Elstree, but in the centenary year it really was the wish of director Howard Berry and the project team, to take the opportunity to produce something special with our archive.
We are incredibly grateful to all those who supported the production of the extra documentary content – including StudioCanal, British Pathé, BBC Archives, BBC Studios and Post-Production, BBC Elstree, Elstree Studios, Hertsmere Borough Council, Elstree and Borehamwood Town Council, Morris Bright, Ray Merrin, English Heritage, Wilf Watters, Alan Lawrence, Warner Brothers, Jan Harlan, DreamWorks Pictures, Amblin Entertainment, UH Arts and of course Elstree Screen Heritage and the University of Hertfordshire.
You can find the film from the menu above, under “Films”, or just click here!
