Cricklewood Studios

Cricklewood Studios, also known as the Stoll Film Studios, were British film studios located in Cricklewood, London which operated from 1920 to 1938.[1] Run by Sir Oswald Stoll as the principal base for his newly formed Stoll Pictures, which also operated Surbiton Studios,[2] the studio was the largest in the British Isles at that time. It was later used for the production of quota quickies. In 1938 the studios were sold off for non-film use.

Cricklewood Greats was a 2012 spoof documentary created by Peter Capaldi for BBC 4, about a different and entirely fictional film production company, also set in Cricklewood, which he called Cricklewood Film Studios.[3]
