Cricklewood Studios, also known as the Stoll Film Studios, were British film studios located in Cricklewood, London which operated from 1920 to 1938. The studios were formerly a Handley Page aeroplane factory until they were bought by Sir Oswald Stoll as the principal base for his newly formed Stoll Pictures, which also operated Surbiton Studios.[1] At the time the studio was the largest in the British Isles. It was later used for the production of quota quickies. In 1938 the studios were sold off for non-film use.

Cricklewood Greats was a 2012 spoof documentary created by Peter Capaldi for BBC 4, about a different and entirely fictional film production company, also set in Cricklewood, which he called Cricklewood Film Studios.[2]
