Borne from British International Pictures' acquisition of British Pathé, Associated British Picture Corporation (ABPC), was a film production, distribution, and exhibition company that produced such titles as Galton & Simpson's The Rebel and The Bargee.
During its prime, ABPC owned five hundred cinemas and held stakes in other companies such as Anglo-Amalgamated Film Distributors. However the company suffered financial difficulties in the 1960s and was bought out by EMI in 1970.
