    A child stumbles across an edgy man in an abandoned warehouse Fearing that the boy has witnessed the murder he has just committed, he grabs him and they go on the run. From this taut beginning, the film develops into a study of the pair on the run and of the demons that pursue them. Bogarde in one of his earlier starring roles, bristles with abrupt violence and fiery magnetism as the everyday man who has stepped outside the law, and his gradual redemption and growing fondness for young Robbie (played by Jon Whitely) is believable and touching. Directed by Charles Crichton, the film produces a tense, forbidding atmosphere with imagery and occasionally echoing that of Charles Laughton’s The Night of the Hunter.

    Born in Wisconsin in 1909 Joseph Losey studied medicine and English but soon drifted to New York City where he became involved in theatre and worked together with the controversial German playwright Bertolt Brecht. He then caught the attention of MGM and started making short films such as A Gun in His Hand (1945). Losey directed his first feature film in 1947 entitled The Boy with Green Hair for RKO. Several other films followed which established him as an inventive individualistic director. In 1951 Losey was summoned to testify before the House Committee on Un-American Activities (HUAC) while he was shooting Imbarco a mezzanotte in Italy. His links with left-wing theatre groups and the concern for social justice expressed in many of his films attracted the attention of the Committee and led to him being blacklisted. Joseph Losey sought exile in Great Britain where he began re-building his career. His first British feature film THE SLEEPING TIGER (1954) which was credited at the time to Victor Hanbury saw the beginning of a long-lasting collaboration between the director and Dirk Bogarde. In 1960 now well established in the UK Losey began to look for more adventurous projects such as THE CRIMINAL starring an impeccable Stanley Baker as an underworld kingpin. The score of the film was composed by John Dankworth whose career was to become inextricably linked with that of Losey. In 1962 he directed EVA starring Jeanne Moreau and Stanley Baker an examination of sexual obsession boasting one of Moreau’s most iconic performances. Joseph Losey continued his collaboration with Dirk Bogarde in THE SERVANT (1963) which saw Bogarde as the sinister manservant who manipulates his foppish master and ACCIDENT (1967) about a university professor struggling to maintain control of his life. In 1970 Losey directed THE GO-BETWEEN a costume drama starring Julie Christie and Alan Bates which went on to win the Palme d’Or at the 1971 Cannes Film Festival. It is considered to be one of his best works and was his third collaboration (after The Servant and Accident) with Harold Pinter who wrote the screenplay. The final film in this set is MR. KLEIN (1976) starring Alain Delon in which Joseph Losey tackled the dark subject of the Jewish repression in WWII France.

Native doctor Joseph Tomelty whose brother had earlier been killed under questionable circumstances endeavors to help the whites escape the hordes only to discover that his own father is the local leader of the insurrectionists.

  • Blue Lamp, The / The Nanny [1965]Blue Lamp, The / The Nanny | DVD | (23/06/2003) from £N/A   |  Saving you £N/A (N/A%)   |  RRP £15.99

    This is a double-feature of two British crime classics, The Blue Lamp (1949) and The Nanny (1965). The Blue Lamp is the film that introduced PC George Dixon, played by Jack Warner, later immortalised in the BBC's long-running Dixon of Dock Green (1955-76). Here Dixon's murder is the catalyst for an exciting London manhunt, shot largely on location in a fast-moving, starkly efficient style showing the influence of The Naked City (1948). The war-damaged East End and the car chases through almost vehicle-free streets offer a documentary-like vision of a London now long gone, and a young Dirk Bogarde makes a serious impact in an early starring role. In contrast, The Nanny has a superstar, the imported Hollywood legend Bette Davis, in the declining years of her career. Just one of three psychological thrillers Hammer produced in 1965 (the others were Frantic and Hysteria), the film capitalises on the popularity of Davis's Whatever Happened to Baby Jane? (1962) with a comparable mix of hateful insanity and paranoia. The screenplay skilfully juggles the audience's sympathies between a superb Davis and the dysfunctional family of which she becomes a part, developing a powerful sense of dread which shows such clichéd later fare as The Hand That Rocks the Cradle (1992) how to do this sort of thing with real class. On the DVD: The Blue Lamp and The Nanny are presented in black and white with adequate mono sound. The Blue Lamp is in its original 4:3 ratio; The Nanny is cropped from its theatrical 1.85:1 to 4:3, though it's only in a few shots that it becomes obvious that information is missing at the sides of the screen. The print of The Blue Lamp is soft and grainy, while The Nanny is grainy with a considerable amount of flicker. There are no extras. --Gary S. Dalkin
