Southampton - (C.P. - Havas) - Great Britain's film industry will experience a big business boom, Samuel Goldwyn, Hollywood film producer, predicted today as he boarded the Queen Mary for New York.

"The cinema industry (in England) will be more prosperous than ever," he said adding he wished American prospects "were so good."
