In 1929, British International Pictures made Under the Greenwood Tree, the first all-talking motion picture to be made in the UK. It was an adaptation of Thomas Hardy's novel of the same name, and was made at Elstree Studios.

Some scenes were shot on location, and included the windmill at Arkley, not far from the studios. Stills from the movie, showing the mill in a fairly delapidated state, were issued as postcards.
