Trivia

Savage Justice (1967) (Sweet and the Bitter 1967) is considered the first feature shot in British Columbia, however during the 1920s and 30s British productions would use the area to film what was called "The Quota Quickie". British Columbia would double for the United Kingdom.
  • (The Quota): A government enforced requirement for British cinemas to show a quota of British produced films for a duration of 10 years. The Act's supporters believed this would promote the emergence of a vertically-integrated film industry in which production, distribution and exhibition infrastructure were controlled by the same companies. The vertically-integrated American film industry of that era saw rapid growth in the years immediately following the end of the First World War. The idea, therefore, was to try and counter Hollywood's perceived economic and cultural dominance by promoting similar business practices among British studios, distributors and cinema chains. By creating an artificial market for British films, it was hoped the increased economic activity in the production sector would eventually lead to the growth of a self-sustaining industry. The quota was initially set at 7.5% for exhibitors, which was raised to 20% in 1935.

Quotes

Chow, James H.: When I got involved in the business during the 1960s you sat on the sideline for a long time until someone let you in the door. It was the proving ground. Nowadays it seems like there's a formula to get in and the kids just play it like a game.

Wow!!
30 September 2003 | by (Vancouver, B.C.) – See all my reviews

I didn't know what to expect going in but Wow! For a doc. this thing had a whole lot of heart and the audience felt it. It's things like this that make the film industry exciting and unpredictable. I walked out of the theater in a bit of a daze. But a happy daze.
