Ideal Film Company

The Ideal Film Company (often known as Ideal Films or simply Ideal) was a British film production and distribution company that operated between 1911 and 1927. During the Silent era it became one of the leading British production companies, benefiting from the post-First World War boom in films. However the studio was badly hit by the Slump of 1924, and dramatically reduced its film production. In 1927 the company was merged into the British Gaumont empire. Films were still occasionally distributed under the Ideal label, but it had ceased to be a separate company.

Many of the films produced by the company are now considered Maurice Elvey.
