A Bundle of Stanley Baker DVDs is up for grabs - ‘Undercover’ & ‘Beautiful Stranger’ – from Network Distributing’s The British Film collection
Both Out on Blu-ray / DVD / Digital - Monday 6th May
Stanley Baker, born in Wales in 1928, was most well known for producing and starring in the 1964 historical war drama Zulu, and became stalwart of the British film industry. With the continued roll out of Network Distributing’s The British Film collection comes the chance to discover some of his earlier work.
With Undercover (1943) Stanley Baker made his screen debut at age 15. Sergei Nolbandov’s hard-hitting resistance drama is set in occupied Yugoslavia during World War II when an organised resistance has been shattered by the Nazi onslaught. However, it is only the activity of small guerrilla bands that bring fresh hope to the people. But quislings and infiltrators are everywhere – and trusting the wrong person could easily get you killed…
Starring John Clements (The Four Feathers), Tom Walls (Spring in Park Lane) and Michael Wilding (Piccadilly Incident) Undercover is a moving piece of wartime propaganda shot partially on location in South Wales.
In 1954 Stanley co-starred alongside Hollywood royalty when Ginger Rogers forayed into Film Noir for her British film debut in Beautiful Stranger, a mystery drama bubbling with tension, desire and greed.
Joan "Johnny" Victor (Rogers), a gorgeous ex-actress, lives in luxury on the French Riviera courtesy of Louis Galt (Stanley Baker) - a wealthy businessman with global interests. But when she discovers Louis' fortune is built on crime his possessive mania brings about a train of violence from which death is the only certain outcome…
Beautiful Stranger co-starred Rogers then husband Jacques Bergerac in his screen debut and Herbert Lom (The Pink Panther series).
Undercover & Beautiful Stranger are both out on DVD, Blu-ray and Digital on Monday 6th May.
