"Rynox" was directed in 1931 by Michael Powell, long before he had established himself as one of the greatest British directors ever. Michael Powell's greatness could only be guessed at on the strength of this, an incredible story in which a dying businessman hatches a plot to save his company from financial ruin. An early example of a "quota quickie", films such as this were produced for home consumption only and compared very badly with films produced in Hollywood. Long thought to be lost, a print was unearthed about 20 years ago and is now safely in the hands of the BFI. This film was originally protected by the Copyright Acts of 1911 and 1956. The UK copyright expired in 1981 and it is presented here for research purposes only.
