London Films
London Films
Productions is a British film and television production company founded in 1932 by Alexander Korda
Alexander Korda
and from 1936 based at Denham Film Studios
Denham Film Studios
in Buckinghamshire, near London. The company's productions included The Private Life of Henry VIII
The Private Life of Henry VIII
(1933), Things to Come (1936), Rembrandt (1936), and The Four Feathers (1939). The facility at Denham was taken over in 1939 by Rank and merged with Pinewood to form D & P Studios. The outbreak of war necessitated that The Thief of Bagdad (1940) was completed in California, although Korda's handful of American-made films still had Big Ben

for their opening corporate logo.[1] After a restructuring of Korda's UK operations in the late 1940s, London Films
London Films
were now made at Shepperton. One of these was The Third Man (1949). The company's film The Sound Barrier
The Sound Barrier
(1952) won the Academy Award for Best Sound.[2][1] More than 40 years after Korda died in January 1956, the company returned to active film-making in 1997 with Morgan Mason as the chief executive.[3]
