List of Gainsborough Pictures films

This is a list of films made by the British production company Gainsborough Pictures and its parent company Gaumont British between 1924 and 1950. The Gainsborough brand was first used in 1924, although several films had previously been made by the company's founders under a different name.[1] Gaumont British, which took control of Gainsborough in the late 1920s, had also made films prior to 1924. After the merger, the companies released a single slate of films each year.

Following a financial crisis at the company in 1936, Gaumont British ceased production and concentrated on distribution. Despite this, films continued to be released under the Gainsborough banner. In its later years the company was part of the Rank Organisation, and was shut down by the Rank management in 1950 as part of an economy drive.

During the 1920s and 1930s the company took part in several co-productions with Continental companies, notably the German firm UFA. Other films were made by Gainsborough under contract for 20th Century Fox. Also included are films made by Sydney Box's Triton Films.
