The Outsider and Thunderstorm on Bluray/DVD in May

12 May 2015

Network have announced a further two titles as part of their ongoing 'The British Film' collection. Coming on Blu-ray and DVD is The Outsider, a medical drama starring George Sanders and Mary Maguire, and on DVD only is Thunderstorm, which stars former Bond girl Linda Christian as the new resident of a Spanish island who threatens to tear their lives apart.

The Outsider (1939)

Medical drama and romance are intertwined in this engaging melodrama starring Mary Maguire (The Flying Doctor) and George Sanders (Rebecca).

Lalage Sturdee is a brilliant pianist. Virtually abandoned at birth by her father – an eminent surgeon – a mishap at the hands of an unqualified practitioner has left her disabled for life, or she believes. Despite her father's objections she puts her faith in Anton Ragatzy, the ebullient and outspoken inventor of a machine, which appears to be getting miraculous results; a machine that will either cure her completely or cripple her forever.

This classic film based on Dorothy Brandon’s popular 1920s stage play and presented here in a brand-new High Definition transfer from the original film elements.

The Outsider is released on UK Blu-ray at the RRP of £14.99 and DVD at the RRP of £9.99 on 18th May 2015 courtesy of Network’s ‘The British Film’ collection.

Not extra features have been listed.


Thunderstorm (1956)

Mexican born actress and Bond girl Linda Christian gives an electrifying performance as the luminously beautiful, provocative young woman who arrives in a small fishing village on the Spanish coast and threatens to tear apart the simple, tranquil life of the village forever.

Thunderstorm is an intense drama directed with characteristic verve by John Guillermin (The Towering Inferno, The Bridge at Remagen), and featuring art direction by Joseph Hurley – Oscar-nominated for Psycho.

This classic film is featured in a High Definition transfer made from the original film elements, in its as-exhibited theatrical aspect ratio.

Thunderstorm is released on UK DVD on 18th May 2015 at the RRP of £9.99, courtesy of Network’s ‘The British Film’ collection.
