Charles Drazin tells the story of Britain's greatest movie mogul, the Hungarian-born Alexander Korda. Britain offered a halfway house, both literally and figuratively. It was a place where a man with a taste for business and art could invent both himself and a body of work. Not that Korda always found a balance between the two.

In 1934, one of Britain's most celebrated film producers, Alexander Korda, signed Churchill up as a screenwriter and historical advisor. It was the start of a unique collaboration. Churchill provided script notes for Korda's productions and penned an epic screenplay. When war broke out, their collaboration took on national importance. Korda was sent on a mission to Hollywood to help bring America into the war, with positive results.

With Charles Barr, Ian Beyts, Charles Drazin, Robert Firth. How Britain's wartime leader and its only ever movie mogul changed the course of history. Title: Churchill and the Movie Mogul (2019).

The producer behind such celebrated films as The Four Feathers and The Third Man is one of the most colourful and important figures in the history of the British cinema.

The producer behind such celebrated films as The Four Feathers  and The Third Man is one of the most colorful and important figures in the history of the British cinema. This gripping biography tells how with extraordinary ambition, enterprise, and showmanship, Alexander Korda established in Britain a film industry that rivalled Hollywood, built Europe’s biggest studio, and created world-class stars, including Charles Laughton and Vivien Leigh. The biography traces Korda’s path from his rural childhood in a remote part of Hungary to a British knighthood. Korda’s legacy, it argues, was a film industry that dared to dream on the largest possible scale. But he also exemplified the pattern of boom and bust that dogged the British cinema ever since he first came into the limelight in 1933 with the international success of The Private Life of Henry VIII. To understand his often turbulent career is to gain a profound insight into the nature of the British cinema both then and now.
