This powerfully emotional post-war drama from acclaimed British director Lance Comfort features commanding performances from Sally Gray, Stephen Murray, Nigel Patrick and Seymour Hicks, among others, with an excellent score by leading French composer Georges Auric.

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.
