I have loved the company from the days when they were Orion Classics and we bought Us rights to ‘My Beautiful Laundrette’ I for Lorimar Home Video and Tom Bernard, Michael Barker and Donna Gigliotti for Orion Classics theatrical. My Beautiful Laundrette was a huge success for everyone involved and continues as a landmark film to this day. In fact, while being honored at the Screen Awards, its producer Tim Bevan recently said , “Sadly, the most diverse crew we’ve ever had on a film was with My Beautiful Laundrette [in 1985]”.
Tom and Michael have moved on, forming Spc in 1992; Donna has created an amazing portfolio of productions including this year’s upcoming Academy Award Show (why?).
Continuing Spc’s tried-and-true formula for success that has brought us so many great movies,
