Many thanks - I didn't think the "very famous movie" was Ben Hur, Spartacus or Gone with the Wind so it really was Some like it Hot or Casablanca

Then I remembered a thread a year or so ago were there was some discussion of all the types of aircraft in Casablanca - bingo!

Here's an older one

This company tried their hands at construction but eventually went on to specialise in bits - however they are still around tho' subsumed into a current active aircraft construction company

no - the company didn't make many aircraft of their own but they moved in to specialist part's and also I believe were involved Shadow Aircraft production in WW2
