What Happened Then? (1934) DVD
Raymond Rudford is on trial for the murder of the wealthy uncle who adopted him as a boy following the death of his parents. The prosecution produces seemingly damning evidence, including Raymond’s own fingerprints on the razor that killed his uncle and a powerful motive: the fear that he would be disinherited if he should marry Alicia, his fiancée. She knows that Raymond is innocent; but how can she prove it?
Actor-director Richard Bird, horror stalwart George Zucco and charismatic character actor Francis L. Sullivan feature in the cast of this thriller in which love and money troubles threaten to lead an innocent young sculptor to the scaffold. Based on a play by Broadway director Lillian Trimble Bradley, What Happened Then is featured in a brand-new transfer from the original film elements, in its as-exhibited 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.
