THE KING OF UK CINEMAS'
POVERTY ROW
E.J. FANCEY


Edwin John Fancey was a name to strike terror into the hearts of cinema audiences of the 1950s! When in my teens, friends and I used to sneak, under age, into the local 'continental' cinema in Portsmouth (The Palace, later Martines Disco) our excitement waned when we saw 'New Realm' as the distributors' name, for these products were not exactly of the highest calibre, normally being tame old American offerings, retitled. Always trying to get recent films for my 9.5mm sound shows, my school friend would exclaim 'not E.J. Fancey' as the credits hit the screen, and was usually only persuaded to stay by the promise of a Walton glamour film to finish the programme! However, if it hadn't been for Mr. Fancey, Pathéscope would have had little post-war product to offer us on 9.5mm sound.

Edwin J. Fancey, born at Richmond, Surrey on 7th February 1902, was a film producer and distributor, who began distributing American pictures in the UK, via his company New Realm. During the war he moved into film production, forming New Realm Pictures Ltd on 2nd March 1940 with his brother Sid, and D.U.K. Films Ltd with his wife B.C. Fancey six years later on 22nd March 1946. So began the British equivalent of P.R.C. Pictures - poverty row here we come!

here also into 16mm and prints for sale - anyone have a catalogue?

Around 1940/41 E.J. Fancey was prosecuted for stabbing his company accountant in the groin. An argument had arisen it appears, over an accusation that he ran the finances of his company rather 'close to the wind'. The accountant had a leg amputated as a result of the injury. When the case came to court, the accountant was regarded as a hostile witness by the prosecution - presumably he had been 'softened up' before the hearing. Even so, E.J. Fancey got a short prison sentence. (Some details are in the Kine Weekly)

E.J. had a grand castle-like mansion (was this at 29 Boundary Road, West Worthing?). The property had a lodge cottage and it is said he moved his mistress (Olive Negus-Fancey) into this convenient pied-a-terre! A keen racing man, we're told he owned race horses and lived life in the fast lane as befits a 'major' film producer.

Via his various companies we find a large chunk of the 9.5mm printed sound films released by Pathéscope during the 1950s. Many were actual E.J. Fancey UK productions including feature films like: "Down Among the Z Men" with The Goons and Carole Carr; "Forces Sweetheart" with Harry Secombe, Micheal Bentine and Hy Hazell; "Behind the Headlines" with Gilbert Harding and "Flannelfoot"; plus shorter travelogues and documentaries: "Beyond the Heights"; "Land Of My Fathers"; "Prisoners Of the Tower"; "The Man On the Cliff"; "A Willing Horse"; "Doing the Dickens Walk" etc and short compilation footage films like "Comedy Cocktail" (Chaplin); "The Mad Hatter"; "Concerto"; "The Two Roys" and "Dancing Feet" (musicals). To save money a number of these films like "Beyond the Heights" were even written and/or directed by the man himself.

Many other (usually American) titles released by Pathéscope on 9.5mm had been distributed by E.J. Fancey's associated companies DUK (Do-U-Know) - George Pal puppetoons; New Realm - "Marshall of Santa Fe"; "Fury of the North"; "No Rain at Timburie"; "Workmates"; the two Tarzan features, "Snipshots" animated shorts and even things like "Candlelight In Algeria".

"Down Among the Z Men", which supposedly had it's world premier at the Troxy, Fratton Road, Portsmouth (I grew up a few miles away in Emsworth - I would have been 7 years old at the time) became quite a cult film, being about the only film to feature all of the Goons - Peter Sellars, Spike Milligan, Harry Secombe and Michael Bentine - famous for their madcap comedy radio series "The Goon Show". It is said it made thousands from the cinema re-releases. Even today the DVD, issued by various obscure companies retails at around £15. Sadly the remains of the Fancey empire have long lost the rights, so that others are now still cashing in.

Watch "Down Among the Z Men" on You Tube: http://youtu.be/AwbHK11sgqY (plus 6 other parts!)

Even the final Pathéscope 9.5mm silent Chaplin releases like "Shoulder Arms", "The Pilgrim" and "A Day's Pleasure" came via the E.J. Fancey link-up. Via DUK Films they had issued a Chaplin compilation for the cinema. The rights were rumoured to have come from Germany, but Chaplin objected and the cinema release, and of course the Pathescope 9.5mm prints were hastily withdrawn from sale! In fact according to an account from Michael Winner in his excellent book "Winner Takes All" Chaplin made a rare visit to the UK in 1958 - "Why are you here?" asked the reporters. Mr Chaplin replied "To sue that bastard E.J.Fancey who has been making money by pirating my films". On learning this, E.J. said to Winner "I'll sue the git for libel"!!

Another company - E.J. Fancey Productions Ltd arrived on 30th November 1954, this time with E.J. Fancey and his son Malcolm as directors. Together with New Realm Pictures Ltd., Celluloid Despatch Services Ltd., D.U.K. Films Ltd. and Embassy Films it still boasted the Fancey's prestigous address of Queen's House, Leicester Square on it's letterhead! Later, other companies included Aqua, Fantur, Border Films and S.F. (Film) Distributors Ltd..

When Edwin Fancey retired in the 1970's, his two children Adrienne and Malcolm took control of his companies. Now if we check the cast lists of films like "Forces Sweetheart", "Flannelfoot", "Behind the Headlines", "Man On the Cliff", "Johnny On the Spot" and "Rock You Sinners" we find actress Adrienne Scott. This was his daughter, but using a stage name before she moved into the adminstrator's chair! In fact we can see Adrienne in her underwear in a brief scene in "Flannelfoot" - where the killer is hiding behind a curtain whilst she changes - however the scene was obviously too hot for Pathéscope - it is cut from the 9.5mm sound print - probably the only thing that is missing in the whole film!

Watch "Flannelfoot" on a DVD from Renown (try Moviemail, Amazon UK etc.)

It seems father Edwin Fancey also used the surname Scott on some film credits, as did his son Malcolm, who went on to produce/direct soft porn features.

E.J. Fancey had two more children Judith Smith (a film editor) and Charles Negus-Fancey, by common law wife Olive Negus-Fancey, who ran Border Films and Carlyle Pictures. He died aged 78 on 28th October 1980 in Surrey, UK.


A UK Kinematograph Weekly cover from 22Aug1970 (courtesy Derek Sharp)
E.J. Fancey reduced to distributing soft-porn films with titles like "The Queer
The Erotic"; "She Lost Her You Know What"; "Legend Of the Witches";
and "Do You Want To Remain A Virgin Forever?" - dire times indeed!

A later 1979 big budget production was "The World Is Full Of Married Men" - Caroll Baker's contract stipulated her name alone would be above the film's title. She happened to catch it when it opened in the West End, and spotted that her name and Anthony Franciosa's appeared above the title. She complained and all prints had to be withdrawn and re-titled!

Despite various bankruptcies along the way, and although reduced to a film booking agency, New Realm was still in business at 82 Wardour Street in 1995, deep in the heart of what was London's Soho filmland. Amongst boarded up doorways and decaying sex shops, times were even harder by then, no smart brass plate, but a scribbled sticky label by a second floor doorbell! (Obviously someone at New Realm spotted my original article in the Group 9.5 magazine at the time, for a few weeks later the sticky label had been replaced by a small brass plate! - gln)

One wonders what delights could have lain in store for ninefivers if Pathéscope and their E.J. Fancey deal had survived, for in 1974 New Realm bought the UK rights to a then unknown French film by the name of "Emmanuelle"!

(original gln article in Group 9.5 magazine many moons ago)


Sadly Edwin Fancey's daughter Adrienne died in 2013 aged 80 (she was born in 1933). Her father would have been proud of her, as, despite the downturn in the UK film industry, she became the UK's first woman managing director of her own film distribution company. In later years New Realm Entertainment distributed films like "The Butterfly and the Diving Bell", "The Queen", "Mrs Henderson" and "Volver". Adrienne Fancey was the founding sponsor of The Adrienne Fancey Best Film Award for The Womens International Film & Television Showcase (The WIFTS), established in 2008.

If you come across the recent UK DVD release of "Rock You Sinners" there is an interesting 7 minute interview with the late Adrienne Fancey from around 2009, including photos of her mother and father etc.(gln update 11Mar2014)
