After reading the review by Benoît Racine, I really didn't feel that there was a lot I could add to their insightful review. While this documentary about the Rank Film Studio was welcome since there are apparently no other documentaries on this subject, it is NOT a particularly inspired film. Much of the problem is that they seem to spend a lot of time on particular films mostly depending on whether or not they could get various mostly minor stars on camera to discuss the pictures. As a result, this took precedence over more important or ground-breaking films. In addition, later in "The Golden Gong", the entire production really seemed like it was just an extended ad for Michael Caine's latest film--one they made sound as if it was greatest film in the history of British cinema! A rather cynical and shallow film to say the least--but at least it did provide some nice background on the studio.
