  • The Heiress (1949) [The Criterion Collection] [Blu-ray] The Heiress (1949) | Blu Ray | (17/06/2019) from £17.99  |  Saving you £N/A (N/A%)  |  RRP £N/A

    Directed with a keen sense of ambiguity by William Wyler (The Best Years of Our Lives), this film based on a hit stage adaptation of Henry James's Washington Square pivots on a question of motive. When shy, fragile Catherine Sloper (Olivia De Havilland, in a heart-breaking, Oscar-winning turn), the daughter of a wealthy New York doctor, begins to receive calls from the handsome spendthrift Morris Townsend (Montgomery Clift), she becomes possessed by the promise of romance. Are his smouldering professions of love sincere, as she believes they are? Or is Catherine's calculating father (Ralph Richardson) correct in judging Morris a venal fortune seeker? A graceful drawing room drama boasting Academy Awardwinning costume design by Edith Head (Roman Holiday), The Heiress is also a piercing character study riven by emotional uncertainty and lacerating cruelty, in a triumph of classic Hollywood filmmaking at its most psychologically nuanced. Features: New, restored 4K digital transfer, with uncompressed monaural soundtrack New conversation between screenwriter Jay Cocks and film critic Farran Smith Nehme New programme about the film's costumes featuring costume collector and historian Larry McQueen The Costume Designer, a restored 1950 short film featuring costume designer Edith Head Appearance by actor Olivia de Havilland on a 1979 episode of The Paul Ryan Show Excerpts from a 1973 tribute to director William Wyler on The Merv Griffin Show, featuring Wyler, de Havilland, and actors Bette Davis and Walter Pidgeon Wyler's acceptance speech from the American Film Institute's 1976 Salute to William Wyler Interview with actor Ralph Richardson filmed in 1981 for the documentary Directed by William Wyler Trailer PLUS: An essay by critic Pamela Hutchinson

    Jean Renoir once said of Ernst Lubitsch (Ninotchka, The Shop Around the Corner, and To Be or Not to Be): He invented the modern Hollywood. And none of the director's films has had greater influence or impact than Trouble in Paradise. With his first comedy of the sound era, Lubitsch created one of cinema's supreme visions of shimmering romance and worldly sophistication.When career thief Gaston Monescu (Herbert Marshall) meets glamorous pickpocket Lily (Miriam Hopkins), their love soon takes on a professional dimension as they initiate a plot to rob beautiful perfume magnate Mariette Colet (Kay Francis). But as Gaston gets ever closer to his intended prey, his romantic confusion, as well as the threat that his past will catch up with him, throws their plan into jeopardy.A breathtakingly nimble and elegant examination of the perils of mixing business with pleasure, this gloriously adult and witty comedy features a peerless screenplay by Samson Raphaelson, effervescent performances by its stars (including Charlie Ruggles and Edward Everett Horton), and exquisite direction by the legendary Lubitsch.
