CHARGEURS’ LLOYD MEETS HIS WATERLOO

French giant Chargeurs may be an increasingly powerful force in the European film industry, but it seems some of its employees are getting ideas a little above their station. The station in question being London’s Waterloo, starting point for the Eurostar train to Paris via the Channel Tunnel. It appears that Alexis Lloyd, the oh-so-Parisian managing director of Chargeurs-owned Guild Film Distributors, recently found himself running 10 minutes late to catch his ride home, and ordered a hapless assistant to call and demand the train be held until he arrived. Fortunately for the hundreds of other busy commuters, the station manager rebuffed this French advance as firmly as Wellington saw off Napoleon at another Waterloo.
