Our Man in Marrakesh & Stolen Assignment on DVD in January

8 December 2014

Network Distributing have announce another two titles for UK DVD release as part of their ongoing 'The British Film' collection: Our Man in Marrakesh, a spy thriller from Hammer director Don Sharp about a traveller who gets himself caught up a trouble in Marrakesh; and Stolen Assignment, a light–hearted thriller from Hammer director Terence Fisher about sleuthing reporters.

Our Man in Marrakesh (1966)

Herbert Lom (Spartacus, The Ladykillers), Terry-Thomas (I’m All Right Jack) and Austrian-born star Senta Berger (Cross of Iron) are among the assorted spies and villains with whom Tony unwittingly tangles. Also featuring Klaus Kinski (Aguirre the Wrath of God, Nosferatu the Vampyre) in suitably menacing form as the sinister stranger who tracks his every move.

Directed by Hammer Films veteran Don Sharp (Kiss of the Vampire, Rasputin the Mad Monk) and scripted from a story by British B-movie mogul Harry Alan Towers (under his regular pen-name ‘Peter Welbeck’), Tony Randall (The Odd Couple) stars as the American tourist whose eagerly awaited vacation turns into a potentially deadly adventure.

Our Man In Marrakesh, which is presented here in a brand-new transfer from the original film elements and can also be found under the less subtle title of Bang ! Bang! You're Dead!, will be released on UK DVD on 19th January 2015 at the RRP of £9.99, courtesy of Network Distributing’s ‘The British Film’ collection.

Stolen Assignment (1955)

Henry Crossley is an artist whose wife is spending a week’s holiday with her aunt. But when her aunt comes to see him, worried because her niece has not arrived, a police investigation into her disappearance begins. It seems that Henry was fully occupied at the time when his wife went missing; but is his alibi completely truthful?

John Bentley (African Patrol) and Hy Hazell (The Yellow Balloon) star as the two reporters who try to unravel the alibi of the suspected murderer.

Stolen Assignmentis presented here in a brand-new transfer from the original film elements in its as-exhibited theatrical aspect ratio.

Stolen Assignment is available to own on DVD from 19th January 2015 at the RRP £9.99, courtesy of Network Distributing’s ‘The British Film’ collection.
