Details

A fantastical allegory from the pen of J B Priestley, this most unusual of Ealing’s features has long been hard to see.

 Nine disparate Britons are transported to a mysterious city where, according to their class and disposition, they find themselves either in an earthly paradise of peace and equality or a hell starved of ambition and riches.

 A striking expression of post-war utopian impulses, this underrated British classic is presented here in a new 2K transfer from the best surviving 35mm element, and available for home entertainment viewing for the very first time. Directed by Basil Dearden (The Captive Heart, Victim) and starring John Clements, Googie Withers, and Raymond Huntley.
