MGM British tells the nostalgic story behind England's biggest film studio from 1948-1970 in Borehamwood, Hertfordshire, England. The historic studio played host to some of the biggest names in Hollywood’s history and over 150 classic movies during the Golden Age of cinema.

 

Come behind the scenes with director Stanley Kubrick and 2001 (1968) and discover the story of the making of the film that set a new standard for science fiction that has yet to be equalled. From Alfred Hitchcock’s Under Capricorn (1949) to Mogambo (1953) with Clark Gable, Ava Gardner, and Grace Kelly to Where Eagles Dare (1968) with Richard Burton and Clint Eastwood, famous and infamous movies, stars, and directors labored in the sometimes lavish yet often limited resources of Hollywood’s distant cousin. 

 

Featuring many never before seen photographs.
