1940s thriller The Night Has Eyes on DVD in August

10 August 2015

Schoolteacher Marian Ives visits the Yorkshire moors where her friend, Eveyln, disappeared a year ago. Caught in a violent storm, she takes refuge in a large, lonely house to which she is grudgingly admitted by Stephen Deremid, a reclusive pianist traumatised by his experiences in the Spanish Civil War. While Marian finds herself attracted to Stephen, she also begins to suspect that he may have had something to do with her friend’s disappearance.

A powerful, atmospheric thriller and a major box-office hit for director Leslie Arliss (The Man In Grey, The Wicked Lady), The Night Has Eyes boasts a supremely accomplished cast and crew including Wilfrid Lawson (Pygmalion, Tom Jones) and a youthful James Mason (Lolita, A Star Is Born).

The Night Has Eyes also stars British femme fatale Joyce Howard (They Met in the Dark, Love on the Dole), and Günther Krampf’s (Pandora’s Box, The Ghoul) skilful cinematography is complemented by an evocative score by Charles Williams (The Rocketeer, The 39 Steps).
