A Day at Denham

Fascinating record of the grit behind the glamour of one of Europe's largest film studios – and all in a sleepy little English village.

Documentary 1939 10 mins


A fascinating visual record of the daily activities that once took place at one of the largest film studios in Europe - located in the sleepy English village of Denham. Following their arrival in the morning, we follow the studio's employees as they undertake their daily work - no pampered stars here - in wardrobe, make-up, workshops, set construction, editing and the film labs. They're even allowed to eat, as the canteen footage duly attests.
