Excerpt from Documentary News Letter, 1944, Vol. 5
There appears to be considerable danger that a situation of hostility might arise from the present uncertainties regarding the future of the British Film Industry in relation to the powerful com bines which, from Hollywood and New York, are in a position to launch an attempt at world monopoly. It would be a thousand pities if such a conﬂict should arise, for it is something which ought to be avoidable in terms of international good sense.
But the situation is beginning to look serious. People are getting perturbed. It is being said that there is no reason why the British people should be brought up on American culture, simply be cause American finance dominates our film industry. It would be so fatally easy, say the pessimists, for the Government to consider the British film industry on a comparable level of importance with the manufacture of say, luxury leather goods - a source of revenue from foreign markets to be used as a bargaining counter when allocation of post-war markets is on the anglo-american agenda. The Govern ment might think it smart business to sacrifice our claim for film markets in exchange for a wide distribution of Australian wool or British blankets.
