Closed: Win Brighton Rock on Blu-ray

BrightonRock-Original.jpgBrighton Rock is a classic, and we're talking the original 1947 film starring Richard Attenborough in the adaptation of the Graham Greene novel through his own screenplay and directed by John Boulting, and it's just been restored and released on Blu-ray.

Now you can win a copy of this new release of the classic film which comes with interviews with Richard Attenborough and John Bouting from 1954. Digitally remastered on Blu-ray, how can you say no?

First up, here's an official blurb for the original Brighton Rock:

A welcome restoration and re-release of the classic 1947 Boulting Brothers adaptation of Graham Greene's gritty British Noir, memorably set in the streets and pier of post-war Brighton.

Brighton Rock stars Richard Attenborough (The Great Escape, Jurassic Park, Elizabeth) in perhaps his most iconic onscreen role as Pinkie: a small time hoodlum running a protection racket at a Brighton racecourse. Following the murder of a visiting journalist, Pinkie becomes involved with Rose (Carol Marsh) a café waitress and potentially dangerous witness. Marrying her seems to ensure her silence, but events escalate and eventually lead to Pinky's undoing and a thrilling and memorable climax.

Also starring Hermoine Baddeley and William Hartnell (the first Dr Who), the film was adapted for the screen by Greene himself - who famously changed his own ending.

The digitally remastered version on Blu-ray also comes with an interview with Rowan Joffé and a 1954 NFT interview with Richard Attenborough and John Bouting.
