An army officer has become obsessed with playing cards. Convinced that an elderly countess possesses the secret of winning every game, the young officer’s obsession leads him into a satanic world of madness, mayhem and murder where death is only the beginning.
A breathtaking new restoration of Thorold Dickinson’s 1949 classic. Based upon a short ghost story by celebrated Russian author Alexander Pushkin, The Queen of Spades is considered legendary film-maker Thorold Dickinson’s most accomplished piece of work. Starring Anton Walbrook (The Red Shoes) and Dame Edith Evans (Scrooge, Tom Jones) it remains an atmospheric and macabre classic like no other.
