Former 007 Roger Moore has made a plea for a buyer to come forth to save the 80-year-old Elstree Film Studios. The historic studios, where Alfred Hitchcock directed some of his more famous mysteries and where the Indiana Jones and Star Wars films were produced, were purchased by Hertsmere Borough Council in 1996 when no other buyer turned up. Today's (Wednesday) Guardian newspaper quoted Moore as saying, "Hertsmere Council extended it a lifeline when it needed it most, and invested heavily. Now that they are seeking to pass on the ownership, I hope that an equally passionate and caring owner can be found; and help take the studio into one of the most exciting periods of film and new media production." A spokesman for the Hertsmere Council said that it was selling the property because it needs a serious injection of cash to modernize it and keep it going.

I believe Hammer Films also used Elstree for several years, either before or after Bray. I WISH I had the money to buy this! Maybe I can hit the Powerball this week!
