He resigned from Goldcrest in 1984 but returned in late 1985 at the invitation of its board to try (vainly) to rescue it financially, and resigned again in 1987. Since then he worked for Allied Filmmakers, functioning as producer or executive producer on some of its films. In 1990, he co-authored (with Terry Ilott), “My Indecision Is Final”, an absorbing account of his Goldcrest years, emerging as a man of probity, with a taste for quality film production.
Eberts was the producer on the Euro-western “Grey Owl” (1999) starring Pierce Brosnan and directed by Richard Attenborough.
