    British film icon Kenneth More stars opposite Shirley Anne Field and Michael Hordern in this madcap sci-fi satire from director Basil Dearden. Scripted by Oscar nominees Michael Relph and Bryan Forbes, Man in the Moon is featured here in a brand-new transfer from the original film elements in its as-exhibited aspect ratio. William Blood is Mr Normal, yet he's also rather strange: his immunity to illness and inability to worry enable him to make a living as a human guinea pig. A team of 'NASTI' scientists have an extraordinary mission lined up for William, however rather than risk the lives of highly trained astronauts (or test animals!), they want to send him to the Moon...

  • Khartoum [1966] Khartoum | DVD | (31/03/2003) from £5.19  |  Saving you £10.80 (67.50%)  |  RRP £15.99

    Set in the expanse of the Sudan desert in the midst of holy war, Khartoum (1966) plays like an attempt to work the Lawrence of Arabia magic on the (mostly) true story of eccentric British general Charles "Chinese" Gordon in 1884 North Africa. The magnificent opening desert battle suggests David Lean's epic sweep, at least until the film settles into a more modest story of political games, military standoffs, and a battle of wits and wiles between two fierce leaders. Charlton Heston plays the Christian soldier as cocky, unconventional maverick, and Laurence Olivier (behind heavy make-up and a thick black beard) is almost as good as his cagey nemesis the Mahdi, the Islamic holy warrior on a mission of annihilation. More talk than spectacle, the film falls short of Lawrence but is nonetheless a compelling story of colonial politics, cynical manoeuvring and the unconventional heroics of another colourful British maverick abroad. --Sean Axmaker

    First individual DVD release! Basil Dearden's ground-breaking tale starring Nigel Patrick and Michael Craig portraying two Scotland Yard detectives who are investigating the murder of a young black woman who had been passing for white. As timely a topic today as when made in an England rampant with racial prejudice in the 1950s, it stays just this side of an in-depth indictment of racism and bigotry as the detectives investigate the vast array of suspects - everyone from the girl's white boyfriend and his parents who feared that the association would destroy his career to the boys that the girl had spurned when she was accepted by white society. Winner of BAFTA for Best British Film 1960.
