    The 1938 Cinematograph Films Act signalled the end of a decade of achievement for the British film industry. The legislation made it easier for American renters to meet their quota obligations, by reducing the number of domestic productions they were required to handle in order to balance the volume of Hollywood films imported into Britain.
