Eagle-Lion Films was a British film production company owned by J. Arthur Rank intended to release British productions in the United States. In 1947 it acquired PRC Pictures, a small American production company, to produce B Pictures to accompany the British releases. The studio became one of the most respected makers of B-movies on what was known as Hollywood's "Poverty Row." Eagle-Lion was also a film distribution company under the name of Eagle-Lion Distributors Limited in the United Kingdom and Eagle-Lion Films Inc. in the United Statesmarker. The relatively small film lot was located at 7950 Santa Monica Boulevard, and has long since been demolished.

From 1946-1949 Eagle-Lion was under the control of Arthur Krim who in addition to releasing films by Rank and David O. Selznick produced his own B-movies as support. In 1951 Krim was offered the leadership of United Artists to improve their fortunes.

Eagle-Lion had acquired the film studio of PRC who had acquired the building from Grand National Pictures that ceased in 1939. In 1954 Frederick Ziv bought the studio for his Ziv Television Programs.
