The Key Man & The Woman's Angle on DVD in November

5 November 2014

Network Distributing have announced a further two films for November 2014 DVD release as part of their 'The British Film' collection: The Key Man, starring Lee Patterson as a crime show host tangling with real-life gangsters; The Woman's Angle, a romantic drama about a man under scrutiny from the three women who know him best.

The Key Man (1957)

In an attempt to reconstruct a murder case, radio host Lionel Hulme advertises for information as to the whereabouts of ex-convict Arthur John Smithers, who had served a seven-year prison sentence for the manslaughter of his partner. Between them they had perpetrated one of the most daring robberies of all time, escaping with a large sum of money. Smithers was subsequently tried and convicted on a separate murder charge, but the stolen notes were never recovered. It is with the ulterior motive of obtaining the money that Hulme is now investigating the case.

Lee Patterson (Another World, Reach For The Sky) stars as the crime-show host tangling with real-life gangsters in this classic B-movie thriller directed by genre stalwart Montgomery Tully (No Road Back, The Terrornauts).

The Key Man will be available to own on DVD from 10th November 2014 at the RRP £9.99, courtesy of Network’s ‘The British Film’ collection.

The Key Man (also known as Life at Stake) is featured here in a brand-new transfer from the original film elements in its as-exhibited theatrical aspect ratio.

A Woman's Angle (1952)

The organising force of a family of musical prodigies, Robert Mansell is a frustrated composer in search of one thing - personal happiness. This search, however, has landed him in the divorce courts - and the judge's summary does not paint him in a favourable light.

This romantic drama, co-written and directed by former Gainsborough Pictures kingpin Leslie Arliss (The Man In Grey, The Wicked Lady), stars Edward Underdown (Thunderball, Beat The Devil) as a man under uncomfortable scrutiny from the three women who know him best: his bitter, soon-to-be-ex wife, his recent, flighty, paramour and his lovesick personal assistant.

The Woman’s Angle is available to own on DVD from 10 November 2014 at the RRP £9.99, courtesy of Network’s ‘The British Film’ collection.

The Woman’s Angle is featured here in a brand-new transfer from the original film elements in its as-exhibited theatrical aspect ratio.
