British Cinema review Product Description

British Cinema movie was released Sep 16, 2008 by the VCI Home Video (Video Communications, Inc.) studio. Six overlooked classic "B" film gems from the 1940s and 50s: Siege of Sidney Street, The Frightened Man, Crimes At the Dark House, The Hooded Terror, Girl In the News, and Tread Softly Stranger.

The highlights of this British cinema collection are an early effort by director Carol Reed, THE GIRL IN THE NEWS--about a nurse who becomes a pawn in the cruel game of one of her clients--and the over-the-top villainy of character actor Tod Slaughter--in THE HOODED TERROR and TREAD SOFTLY STRANGER.   ...See Full Description

British Cinema DVD Features

SIEGE OF SIDNEY: The dramatization of true events sets the stage for this drama. The date is 1911 and a standoff is sparked between Russian anarchists and police officers. The young woman trapped in the middle thinks back to the events that led up to the siege with unpleasant memories. Violence and flashbacks to the events provide the tension to sustain the viewer to "stay till the end!" THE FRIGHTENED MAN: Charles Victor, the owner of a small furniture & antique shop uses extra cash from handling stolen good to put his son through Oxford. However, the son gets himself kicked out and comes home to sponge off the old man. When Victor's savings are depleted, the son wants more and gets himself involved with some heavy duty bad guys. Tragedy is the name of the game in this one. CRIMES AT THE DARK HOUSE: When lady luck smiles sometimes, it doesn't last! The inheritance of a large estate leads to murder, when a madman kills the recepient only to gain entrance to the estate so that he can murder his enemies. HOODED TERROR: Made on a low budget, this drama thriller is both classy & suspenseful. The house of horrors has plenty for the horror fan to enjoy. This restoration is a must for horror fans! GIRL IN THE NEWS: The perfect plot! An unsuspecting nurse, once acquitted of murder, is hired as a nurse for the wheelchair-bound Mr. Bentley. This falls into the plans of Mrs. Bentley and the butler lovers plotting to set Ms. Graham up when Mr. Bentley is found dead. TREAD SOFTLY STRANGER: Diana Dors plays Calico, the sexy vamp (or tramp?) and Terence Morgan, the staid little office worker and "love interest"of Calico. Things heat up when the shady but handsome brother arrives from London. Instant attraction strikes between Calico & the brother making her plan of theft take off. Source: VCI Home Video
