33 The Rank Pictures Rank's first pictures did nothing to alleviate Eagle-Lion's condition. In addition to experiencing the general apathy toward British pictures, they felt the full impact of the boxoffice slump. Rank's first picture, Bedelia, for example, grossed only $350,000. Rank had hoped to secure around 12,000 bookings for each of his pictures, but Bedelia had only 4,000. In the past, better-grade British pictures had averaged about 6,000 bookings. Only a handful of British pictures had ever succeeded in the United States-Alexander Korda's The Private Life of Henry VIII (1933), Noel Coward's In Which We Serve (1943), and Laurence Olivier's Henry V (1946), plus a few others.

Product scheduled for PRC release was channeled into Eagle-Lion with the goal of keeping its distribution pipeline full, regardless of the quality of the pictures. At the same time, the producing activities of PRC Productions were gradually phased out in an attempt to erase completely any vestige of Poverty Row. Krim then lined up independent producers, the most important of whom were Edward Small and Walter Wanger, in addition to Bryan Foy. Small was a Hollywood veteran responsible for a steady stream of solid box-office fare including I Cover the Waterfront (1933), The Last of the Mohicans (1936), The Man in the Iron Mask (1939), and Brewster's Millions (1945), all released through UA.

But the majors would not budge, for several reasons. S. exhibitors generally disliked British pictures, for reasons that will be explained later. For another, the motion picture business was booming. During the war, dollars were plentiful, while commodities were not. Movies were the most readily available entertainment, which benefited Hollywood. Domestic film rentals for the eight majors jumped from $193 million 19 Prelude at Eagle-Lion in 1939 to $332 million in 1946. Every night was Saturday night at the movies.
