SUMMARY: In this interesting and detailed interview with Alan Lawson, Pennington-Richards discusses his first experiences in the film industry as a titler working on advertising shorts. He reveals that his break came with a film shot inside Caterbury Cathedral in 1934, which led him to set up a unit with the Religious Film Society. He also discusses his work with the Crown Film Unit, particularly Fires Were Started, giving an account of Humphrey Jennings' visual perfectionism and improvisation techniques. An interesting account of his work on White Corridors is also provided, and he claims the film was shot so rapidly at Pinewood that Arthur Rank was moved to investigate in person. Pennington-Richards also offers a great deal of technical information, particularly regarding the matching of studio and location footage.
