Inside Film 1967 21 mins


A likeable realist who seems immune to praise, John Boulting shared production and direction duties with his twin brother, Roy, on films such as I'm All Right Jack. Here he shows how monopoly interests and American cash control the "unhealthy" British film industry, and talks of his work with Peter Sellers, whom Braden dismisses as a "bit player" who got lucky.
