The Shepperton Story: The History of the World-Famous Film Studio

by , ,

Crammed with information and rare pictures from the famous Shepperton Studios, this exhaustive and affectionate history features interviews with scores of filmmakers, along with scores of others who make up Shepperton's history. From assistants to directors, producers, stars, prop men, production managers, and studio executives, the author of this has interviewed more than 200 industry people and has painstakingly researched the history of the studio site from its first recorded use in the Domesday Book through its redevelopment as one of Britain's first major film studios in 1932. The studio's story covers everything from housing classic movies featuring comedy great Will Hay, to blood-churning horrors starring Todd Slaughter through the studio's covert use during World War II as a camouflage manufacturing plant, and on to its reopening with great classics such as "The Tales Of Hoffman" and "I'm Alright Jack," and on to modern greats such as "Flash Gordon," "Robin Hood: Prince Of Thieves," "The Crying Game," "Chaplin," "Gladiator," "Troy," "Batman: The Beginning," and "The Golden Compass."
