Mr Denning Drives North (1951) DVD
Tom Denning, one of the most successful aircraft manufacturers in the country, has a perfect family life with his wife and daughter. But then it happens: in a flash, this successful, highly respected man becomes a tormented figure, driven close to the edge of sanity by the desperate need to maintain a terrible secret…
John Mills heads an outstanding cast as a father whose attempt to prevent his daughter’s potentially disastrous marriage has unforeseen and terrifying consequences.
Featuring a screenplay adapted from his own novel by Alec Coppel, Oscar-nominated writer of Hitchcock’s Vertigo, Mr Denning Drives North is a gripping psychological thriller presented here in a brand-new transfer from the original film elements.
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.
