Subject: RE: Who is J. Arthur Rank, anyway?
J Arthur Rank was one of yer actual icons of the British Film industry (Like your Sam Goldwyn). His productions were introduced by a semi-clad man striking a large gong .

Nowadays he has infamously passed into cockney rhyming slang for er, dare I say it, male masturbation -work it out for yourself.
