John and Roy Boulting

John and Roy Boulting

English film producers and directorss.

Twin brothers born in Bray, England in 1913. Worked together as producer and director whenever they could and their work is almost indistinguishable. They made a mix of tight, economical films (Brighton Rock, Seven Days to Noon etc.) and flabby, fuddled comedies (Carlton-Browne of the F.O., Private's Progress etc.).

John died in 1985 and Roy in 2001.
