Film Director Frank Launder’s Last Interview

 

To make a film, one must have two things — the image and the script. And a third thing, too: the idea that brings them together.

In consequence, film directors fall, in my opinion, into two major categories: the image men & the script men. Frank Launder was among the first and the greatest of the latter group in Great Britain. As such, he became the most outstanding by far President of The Film Script Writers’ Guild in Britain.

He had the longest career in making silent films, black-and-white films, and also colour films. He retired on the Riviera, with wife and four children, and stayed there for solid 30 years, since before the early 1970’s, until, practically, the year 2000.

In this interview, he speaks about boycott — the man, the word, the film, the impact, the money, the actors, the associates...

This was, it so turned out, Frank Launder’s last public appearance, and his last interview.

I was the lucky man who organized, and put together the whole memorable event. And I must say, to wind up with, that I was introduced to him for the very first time only five minutes before the interview took place.
