Starring Flora Robson and Leslie Banks, and featuring an early performance from Robert Newton, Farewell Again joins a regiment of the 23rd Royal Lancers on the happy occasion of a long-awaited reunion with loved ones back in Southampton and charts the consequences of an unexpected order which sees them forced to return to duty in the Near East just hours later.
By turns humorous, poignant and dramatic, this exceptionally popular film was made with the assistance of the War Office and proved a box-office hit on its original 1937 release.
Re-released twice more during wartime, it is featured here in a brand-new transfer 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.
