Joan Greenwood reprises her hit stage performance as a frustrated housewife in the film adaptation of this popular West End farce. Co-starring Nigel Patrick and Derek Farr – and showcasing a memorable early performance from Audrey Hepburn – Young Wives’ Tale is featured here as a brand-new remaster from original film elements in its original theatrical aspect ratio.
Compelled to live together due to the post-war housing shortage, the Pennants and the Bannings just about get along… but add in a brace of babies, a succession of nannies and a shy-but-pretty lodger, and the situation very soon starts to unravel!
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.
