Wild River (1960) Dual Format (Blu-ray & DVD) Blu Ray

| Blu Ray

Regarded as one of the crowning achievements in the career of both director Elia Kazan (A Streetcar Named Desire On the Waterfront) and actor Montgomery Clift Wild River charted new territory for cinema at the dawn of the 1960s combining psychology eroticism documentary realism and exquisite pictorial beauty within the CinemaScope frame. In the early 1930s an administrator for the Tennessee Valley Authority (Clift) arrives in the small town of Garthville with the business of convincing an elderly landowner to sell her land to the government. Soon afterward he’s thrown into conflicts emotional (falling in love with the landowner’s widowed granddaughter played by Lee Remick who is expected to marry another man) and societal (the employment of black labour on the authority’s river project). With its mix of the personal and the political Wild River in the words of critic and scholar Adrian Martin shows us that there is only in each case and circumstance the particular problem the isolated breakthrough and the irretrievable loss.” The Masters of Cinema Series is proud to present Wild River in a special Dual Format edition that presents the film on Blu-ray for the first time in the UK.

Social drama set in the rural U.S. in the early 1930s, directed by Elia Kazan. Montgomery Clift stars as Chuck Glover, an agent sent by the Tennessee Valley Authority to the small town of Garthville to oversee the building of a dam. He encounters opposition from the local people, including an elderly woman called Ella Garth (Jo Van Fleet) who refuses to budge from her land, and various factions who object to his provision of paid employment to local black labourers. Lee Remick co-stars as Ella Garth's granddaughter Carol, who gradually falls in love with the sensitive and liberal-minded Glover.
