127_THE_THIRD_SECRET_BD_2D_packshot_72dpi_1000px_transp_300x300.png

(Charles Crichton, 1964)
Release date: 18 February 2019
Limited Blu-ray Edition (World Blu-ray premiere)


The apparent suicide of an eminent psychologist prompts his teenage daughter (Pamela Franklin – The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie, The Legend of Hell House) and one of his patients (Stephen Boyd – Ben-Hur, Fantastic Voyage) to investigate. Convinced he was murdered, the two begin a journey into the lives and twisted psychoses of the doctor’s disturbed patients.

Directed by the great Charles Crichton (Dead of Night, The Lavender Hill Mob, A Fish Called Wanda), stunningly photographed by Douglas Slocombe (The Italian Job, Raiders of the Lost Ark), and starring an incredible cast which includes Jack Hawkins, Richard Attenborough, Diane Cilento and Judi Dench in one of her earliest screen roles, The Third Secret is a dark and elegant psychological thriller which has long been overlooked, but is now ripe for rediscovery.

117_A_SEVERED_HEAD_BD_2D_packshot_72dpi_1000px_transp_300x300.png

(Dick Clement, 1971)
Release date: 18 February 2019
Limited Blu-ray Edition (World Blu-ray premiere)


Dick Clement followed the success of his first feature Otley with this wry adaptation of Iris Murdoch’s celebrated 1961 satirical novel, a harbinger of the sexual liberation that was to blossom in the mid-60s.

A Severed Head chronicles the sexual and amoral escapades of a group of middle-class, middle-aged London couples, portrayed by a wonderful cast which includes Ian Holm (Alien, The Lord of the Rings), Lee Remick (Days of Wine and Roses, The Omen), Claire Bloom (The Haunting, The King’s Speech) and Richard Attenborough (10 Rillington Place, Young Winston). Absurdist and delightfully funny, A Severed Head is a dark satire staged with wit and intelligence.

115_TAKE_A_GIRL_LIKE_YOU_BD_2D_packshot_72dpi_1000px_transp_300x300.png


(Jonathan Miller, 1970)
Release date: 18 February 2019
Limited Blu-ray Edition (UK Blu-ray premiere)


Jonathan Miller’s film of Kingsley Amis’ comic novel (adapted for the screen by George Melly), casts Hayley Mills (Whistle Down the Wind, Twisted Nerve) as a naïve young girl who moves from the North of England to teach in a London school and finds herself fending off the advances of a number of lusty suitors, including Oliver Reed, John Bird and Noel Harrison.

As much a document of its time as a satire on the sexual mores (and confusions) of the period, Miller’s still remarkably fresh debut feature is buoyed by its terrific cast and a typically excellent Stanley Myers score.

114_PSYCHE_59_BD_2D_packshot_72dpi_1000px_transp_300x300.png


(Alexander Singer, 1964)
Release date: 18 February 2019
Limited Blu-ray Edition (World Blu-ray premiere)

Patricia Neal (fresh from her 1963 award-winning role in Martin Ritt’s Hud) stars as a woman suffering from hysterical blindness, and a blank in her memory which may hide the cause of her affliction. When she and her sex-addict husband (Curt Jurgens – The Enemy Below, The Spy Who Loved Me) move in with her younger sister (Samantha Eggar – The Collector, The Brood), she begins to piece together the events leading to her psychological trauma.

Ahead of its time in its discussion and depiction of all manner of taboo subjects (rape, child abuse, nymphomania, psycho-sexual disorder, masochism), Psyche 59 is one of British cinema’s most daring and provocative adult dramas.

A Severed Head and Psyche 59, yes! I already have the Take A Girl Like You blu from Twilight Time and while I'd love to have the new interview with Hayley Mills, I don't love the film enough to upgrade. I'm content with my DVD of The Third Secret.

I'll definitely buy The Third Secret which I saw when it first came out but never since. I particularly remember Richard Attenborough's cameo and that Stephen Boyd gave a sensitive performance. Psyche 59 I've never seen and I'm not sure why not.
