Milton Subotsky Talks to theblackboxclub.com from The Black Box Club on Vimeo.
Before the Max Rosenberg/Milton Subotsky relationship went belly up, they had a business. A business that worked. That business was a very successful film company. Rosenberg worked from his plush office suite in the U.S. Milton from his portacabin office in the grounds of Shepperton Studios in the UK. The arrangement, which was based on a gentleman's handshake secured the deal and the business was called:
AMICUS FILM PRODUCTIONS
Max Rosenberg would often laugh when he called Amicus 'THE STUDIO WITHOUT WALLS' There was no capital structure, so films got made through a combination of private investment, funding from the Eady plan, and extremely low budgets but very effective scripts and casts. Together Subotsky and Rosenberg produced TALES FROM THE CRYPT, one of the most successful films of 1972.
It was second only to The Godfather at the US box office.
