Rapid Film

Rapid Film was a German film production company established by producer Wolf C. Hartwig. Based in Munich, it operated from the late 1950s to the mid-1980s producing low-budget but commercially successful genre films. During the 1960s Rapid established a distribution arrangement with the leading German studio Constantin Film, and provided the company with many of its hit releases.[1] During the 1970s Hartwig concentrated on producing sex comedies such as the Schoolgirl Report series.

It should not be confused with a company of the same name owned by French producer Bernard Natan during the silent era.
