The marriage of Harriet, a celebrated London model, to Captain James Random causes a sensation: only two years previously, the gentleman farmer was acquitted in rather dubious circumstances of the murder of his first wife and there is still a widespread suspicion among the public that Random is a man who 'got away with it’…
Horror icon Barbara Shelley takes an early starring role as a top model whose marriage sends shockwaves through Society in this gripping mystery drama from the late 1950s. Adapted from the novel by Nina Bawden and directed by Gerald Thomas, The Solitary Child is featured in a brand-new digital transfer 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.
