Tempean Films was a British film production company formed in 1948 by Robert Baker and Monty Berman.[3] Tempean's output of B movies were distributed by Eros Films.[4] The company later moved into television, adapting Leslie Charteris' series of The Saint novels, starring Roger Moore.[5]

The company produced several of its features at Southall Studios in Middlesex including both The Trollenberg Terror television series in 1956 and the film version in 1958, which was Southall Studio's final production.[6][7][8]

John Gilling directed many of Tempean's features.[2]
