    i'm doing a project on sort of foreign cinema made or set in Britain, usually italian or American. like living dead at manchester morgue, which stars critstina galbo who was also in What have you done to Solange WHICH HAD FUCHSBERGER WHO WAS IN FAXCE OF FU MANCHU, WHICH WAS BRITISH-GERMAN yet made in ireland (bishop brennan from father ted has a small role, and my grandad was a prop man on it, and Chrsitopher Lee, James Robertson Justice, Nigel Green...)

    and also weekend murders, which has the Major from Fawlty Towers, Ballad Berkely (curiosuly dubbed) Lance Percival and Eric Pollard from Emmerdale.

    the patrick magee=- lucio fulci black cat

    Any other suggestions.

    It wasn't filmed in Britain but I think 'What the Swedish Bulter Saw' was set here if I remember correctly.

    yes, any more suggestions. there's Panic, starring David Warback, who was also in Black Cat, several Paul Naschy stuff, too many giallos, terror in wax museum with all tohse old Brit-in-Hollywood guys like Milland, Elsa Lanchester, Patric Knowles, Maurice Evans, and also Carradine. it's also backlot and then that Stewart Granger GHound of the Baskervilles with Shatner still using his American-Canadian accent as an Englishman and Jane Merrow off Hands of the Ripper. The Dartmoor village is in fact an old cowboy village.

    Wasn't Sergio Martino's ALL THE COLORS OF THE DARK set in London? Ditto Enzo Castellari's COLD EYES OF FEAR. DEEP END had Germany doubling for the UK. That's all I can think of for now!

    Indeed it was.

    Naschy's Dr. Jekyll Vs The Werewolf has him strolling round Soho in Dr. Jekyll garb.

    Andy Milligan! ;)

    The Hand of Pleasure (1971)

    US filmed sex/horror hybrid, that stars porno regulars, big bust model Roxanne Brewer, and the film’s director Zoltan G Spencer who plays masked baddie ‘Dr Dreadful’. Lots of stock footage of Soho and "bizarre London types" is used to pad the film out and create the illusion of British location shooting.

    There are clips from this, minus the naughty bits, on youtube

    Did Jess Franco make a film in the UK?

    There's all those Disney films made in the UK, one of them features Jodie Foster. Can't recall the names, but they used to be on TV a lot years ago.

    Star Wars & Alien were made in the UK.

    Those Disney films were made in Pinewood like Candleshoe and One of our Dinosaurs are missing, but Poppins and Broomsticks were done in Hollywood. Franco, I think Blood and Castle of Fu Manchu had british money, and were set in Brtiain with Brit actors, but were filmed in Spain, as was the Bloody Judge.

    Arnold Baxter’s The Loves of Cynthia (1972), british actors in the lead roles (including glamour model Flanagan, perhaps now better remembered for her association with the Kray Twins), opening scenes shot here, the rest of the film is Denmark being passed off as rural England. Released heavily cut on UK video under the title ‘Sexy Sisters’.
