Michael Klinger was the most successful independent producer working in the British film industry during the 1960s and 1970s. However, there has been no critical account of his work and he is barely mentioned, if at all, in standard histories of British cinema. This paper outlined his career and its significance, the role of the producer and explored in some depth his work during the 1970s. It focused on a case study of Gold (1974) an international action-adventure film, discussing this neglected genre and of the difficulties producers faced in an era of severe contraction in the British film industry.
