    Going through my Halliwell's Film Guide,Journey's End (1930) is listed as being a joint GB/US production. Would this be the first co-production between Britain and the United States,if not the first international production?

    Not quite :)



    The IMDb lists

    Chinese Magic (1900)

    English Derby, 1901 (1901)

    Emperor William's Yacht 'Meteor' (1901)

    as the earliest co-productions. They are all documentary shorts.



    The first Quota Act of 1927 (The Cinematograph Films Act) was the start of a surge of films made by American companies but made here so that they would qualify under the quota. But American production companies (Metro and others) had been making films here for some time before that.



    Try going through the list at the IMDb which is a list of all they films they list with "country of production" as UK and USA between the years 1900 and 1930.

    This is a query emailed in.

    I'd be grateful for information regarding the identities of the men in the photo illustrating Journey's End.

    I would especially appreciate any information at all about actor/screenwriter Thomas (Tom) Whiteley.

    The one on the left looks a bit like Billy Bevan but I wouldn't put money on it.

    I think it is Billy Bevan ... he played Lt Trotter in Journey's End.







    I think the other one is Charles K Gerrard who played Pvt Mason.
