Synopsis

3-Discs Set

 

During the 1940s, realism reigned in British cinema - but not at Gainsborough Pictures. The studio, which has been around since the twenties, found new success with a series of pleasurably preposterous costume melodramas. Audiences ate up these overheated films, which featured a stable of charismatic stars, including James Mason, Margaret Lockwood, Stewart Granger, and Phyllis Calbert. Though the movies were immensely profitable in wartime and immediately after, Gainsborough did not outlive the decade. This set brings together a trio of the studio's most popular films from this era - florid, visceral tales of secret identities, multiple personalities, and romantic betrayals.

 

Films Include:

 

The Man In Grey

James Mason has his breakout role as the coldhearted Lord Rohan in this tale of loveless marriage.

 

Madonna Of The Seven Moons

A traumatic childhood experience has shocking repercussions for a wealthy woman.

 

The Wicked Lady

Bored with the routine of her domestic existence, a nobleman's wife turns to a life of crime.
