Dick Turpin

Emily and I are trying to piece together the extraordinary history of Wood Street's film production companies up until the 1930's. 

Information on the internet is quite sparse, so it's useful to talk to visitors to the unit, and Emily and I will be off to Vestry House and the BFI this week.  British Filmcraft Productions Ltd, which were at one time based in Wood Street, made a four part series called The Adventures of Dick Turpin in 1929, here is a still from 'Outlawed', showing Kenneth McLaglen and Betty Simmons.
