Anna Neagle, Michael Wilding, Thora Hird and Jack Watling star in Herbert Wilcox’s masterly drama of love across the social divide. A phenomenal box-office success which resonated with cinema audiences struggling amidst the upheavals of post-war Britain, The Courtneys of Curzon Street chronicles the changing fortunes of three generations of the aristocratic Courtney family – from the close of the nineteenth century, when Edward Courtney’s marriage to his mother’s Irish maid scandalises Victorian society, to the final days of the Second World War.
Originally released in 1947, this classic period drama is presented here in a brand-new transfer from original film elements in its as-exhibited theatrical aspect ratio.
The Courtneys of Curzon Street will be released on UK DVD on 9th September 2013 by Network Distributing at the RRP of £9.99 as part of The British Film collection.
