A Frank Launder Sidney Gilliat Production
Did You Know?
[on directing Margaret Rutherford
in The Happiest Days of Your Life
(1950)] We could never put marks down for her, we just had to keep the camera rolling wherever she was likely to be. She can always make any line sound funnier than it really is. She would never do one take the same, but I like an artist like that. Margaret is an artist who has great moments, many great moments.
Launder first worked in the office of the Official Receiver of Bankruptcy and subsequently acted with the Brighton Repertory Company. His film work began as a title writer for Elstree in the late 1920's. He subsequently joined Gaumont-British/Gainsborough. Launder's partnership with Sidney Gilliat commenced in the mid-30's.
