Campbell’s Kingdom Blu-ray (1957)
Bruce Campbell, a young Englishman recently diagnosed with a terminal illness, travels to the Canadian Rockies to claim an unexpected inheritance of land from his grandfather. Determined to prove the old man’s conviction that there is oil in his ‘Kingdom’, Bruce resolves to devote his final months to vindicating the claim, meeting determined and unscrupulous opposition from almost everyone in the valley…
Dirk Bogarde gives an intense performance as a young man who refuses to allow a family dream to die, in this powerful adaptation of Hammond Innes’ best-selling novel.

This classic film is featured in a High Definition transfer made from the original film elements, in its as-exhibited theatrical aspect ratio.
The British Film
The British Film collection was launched by Network Distributing in April 2013 as part of a five-year plan to release over 450 vintage British films through a deal with Studiocanal, one of Europe’s leading distribution and production companies. Many of the films have never been available to own and will benefit from new transfers, affirming Network Distributing’s commitment to classic British cinema.
Titles include significant works from studios including Associated Talking Pictures, Ealing Studios, London Films, British Lion, Associated British Picture Corporation and EMI from the Studiocanal archive.
