Zavvi - The Home of Pop Culture

Richard Todd - Oscar-nominated for his role in The Hasty Heart in 1949 and perhaps best known for his portrayal of Wing Commander Guy Gibson in The Dam Busters - introduces this fascinating and rarely seen documentary from 1952. Elstree Story is a profile of the legendary film studio; of the pictures made there, and the stars and technicians who helped make it one of Europe's greatest film production centres. Featured here in a brand-new transfer from original film elements Elstree Story is showcased in its as-exhibited theatrical aspect ratio.Starting in 1927 when the first film, The White Sheik, was made there, Elstree Story features excerpts from over forty productions - including Hitchcock's Blackmail, the first feature-length British talkie ever shown - with early appearances by some of cinema's greatest stars; it is a most memorable and evocative journey through the years.SPECIAL FEATURES[] Revisiting the Elstree Story[] Image Gallery[] Promotional material PDF
