Description by OLDIES.com:
Michael Caine narrates the story of Great Britain's only film mogul J. Arthur Rank and the rise of his studio in a celebration of the 50 year anniversary of Rank films. Using clips from famous films made by Rank including Caesar & Cleopatra, Brief Encounter, The Red Shoes, The League of Gentlemen, and Oliver Twist, The Golden Gong chronicles Rank's rise from humble beginnings as a maker of religious short films to producer of global blockbusters such as the James Bond films made at Pinewood Studios, Britain's answer to Hollywood.
After starting his career producing religious film shorts, J. Arthur Rank went on to become Britain's first and only movie mogul with his establishment of the legendary Pinewood Studios. Narrated by Michael Caine, THE GOLDEN GONG--named for the musical instrument that opened all of Rank's productions--chronicles Pinewood's rise to success through film clips (CAESAR & CLEOPATRA, BRIEF ENCOUNTER, THE RED SHOES, THE LEAGUE OF GENTLEMEN, OLIVER TWIST) and interviews with stars Stewart Granger, Dirk Bogarde, Richard Attenborough, Christopher Reeve, Joan Collins, and many more.
