Biography by AllMovie

British director George King, in films from 1930 as a writer, producer and director, worked almost exclusively on low-budget (and sometimes no-budget) productions. He helmed several of Todd Slaughter's inexpensive but popular melodramas, beginning with 1935's Sweeney Todd. After the war, King was occasionally afforded a higher budget than usual, as witness the effervescent 1946 release Gaiety George and the moody meller Shop at Sly Corner (1946). Though he ceased directing in 1949, George King remained active as a producer; one of his best efforts of the 1950s was the fact-based crime drama Eight O'Clock Walk (1954).
