Alexander Korda: Britain’s Movie Mogul
Journey through Korda’s Golden Age and beyond, through materials from the BFI National Archive.
From Friday 11 January
Charming and charismatic, Hungarian producer-director Alexander Korda dominated the British film industry in the 1930s following his huge international success with The Private Life of Henry VIII (1933). His films were ambitious in story, style and scope, adopting lavish Hollywood production values and employing glamorous stars. This exhibition takes us on a journey through Korda’s Golden Age and beyond, through posters, publicity and production papers drawn from the BFI National Archive’s Special Collections.
