Biography

John Boulting (full name John Edward Boulting) and his twin brother Roy Boulting (full name Roy Alfred Clarence Boulting), were two very important persons in the British film industry from the 1940s and well into the 1970s. They worked very closely together with a joint production company, Charter Film Productions, which they set up in 1937, taking turn directing and producing their films. In 1955 they were both also appointed directors of the newly formed British Lion Films, after Alexander Korda's company with the same name had gone into receivership, and they managed to make it into a very successful independent distribution company, standing up against the enormous Rank Organisation and the big Hollywood studios, which moved into the British film distribution market after World War II.
