Forced into an arranged marriage with the sadistic Marquis of Rohan, Clarissa Richmond is caught in a loveless relationship in order to provide Rohan with the heir he craves. When Clarissa’s friend Hesther takes Rohan’s fancy, things take a turn for the worse.
The definitive Gainsborough Melodrama, The Man in Grey stars James Mason in a career-defining role as the despicable Lord Rohan, alongside memorable performances from co-stars Phyllis Calvert, Margaret Lockwood and Stewart Granger. This quintessential ‘bodice ripper’ is featured here as a High Definition remaster from 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.
