Ealing Studios - History
Will Barker establishes a film studio at Ealing and created a series of lavish historical dramas.
Talkies arrive in Britain
Basil Dean builds a new studio at Ealing Green for his company Associated Talking Pictures (ATP). He took established stage acts such as George Formby and Gracie Fields and launched their movie careers.
Basil Dean's attempts to produce serious dramatic films failed, so he gave up on the movie business and returned to his first love, the theatre. He was replaced by Michael Balcon, a producer who\'d helped Alfred Hitchcock to success at Gainsborough Pictures in the mid 1920s. He decided to rename the production company Ealing Studios.
