StudioCanal’s Vintage Classics Reach 100 Titles

STUDIOCANAL is very proud to celebrate the iconic VINTAGE CLASSICS collection reaching over 100 titles, a collection of lovingly curated films offering the very best of British film, beautifully restored, often accompanied by insightful interviews and documentaries, packaged in STUDIOCANAL’s unique and distinctive style.

STUDIOCANAL is launching the ultimate VINTAGE CLASSICS treasure trove, taking film fans deeper into their favourite films with behind-the-scenes stills, never-seen-before vintage campaign books, specially commissioned writing, clips, extras and trailers adding a new layer of enjoyment to films that aren’t just to be watched, but to be cherished.

Included in the new website is a famous fans section whereby key industry figures choose their favourite film(s) from the collection telling us why. Participants include Alfonso Cuaron (Melody), Atom Egoyan (Peeping Tom), David Walliams (The Ladykillers), Jane Asher (Laughter in Paradise), Ken Loach (A kind of Loving), Kenneth Brannagh (Dead of Night), Paul King (The Fallen Idol), Richard Ayoade (Billy Liar), Sandy Powell (Don’t Look Now), Joe Cornish (Hue & Cry) and Sofia Coppola (Darling). Essays and videos, from some of the greatest names in filmmaking and experts on film, will also feature.

STUDIOCANAL owns one of the largest film libraries in the world, boasting nearly 6,500 titles from 60 countries. Spanning 100 years of film history.

The stunning roster of incomparable VINTAGE CLASSICS titles includes outstanding thrillers Brighton Rock and The Third Man, heart-rending masterworks The Elephant Man and A Kind of Loving, horror favourites Don’t Look Now and The Wicker Man, war dramas Ice Cold in Alex and The Cruel Sea, Ealing comedies The Ladykillers, Passport to Pimlico and The Lavender Hill Mob (pictured), and lesser-known gems Went the Day Well? The Family Way and The Small World of Sammy Lee. The collection boasts some of the greatest and beloved stars of British cinema including Alec Guinness, John Mills, Dirk Bogarde, Diana Dors, Richard Attenborough, Julie Christie, Hayley Mills and Jenny Agutter, directed by auteurs such as David Lynch, John Schlesinger, Carol Reed, Roger Corman, Nic Roeg and Joseph Losey.

Catch many of these titles on STUDIOCANAL PRESENTS (on the Apple Channel), including new and exclusive for June: Joseph Losey’s The Criminal, a selection of lesser-known Ealing films that really celebrate the Studio’s eclectic range: Pink String and Sealing Wax, The Maggie and The Halfway House to name but three, BAFTA winners Hobson’s Choice (David Lean) and Richard III (Laurence Olivier) and two legends for the price of one: Angela Lansbury is Miss Marple in Agatha Christie’s The Mirror Crack’d.

The Vintage Classics label, a firm favourite among lovers of the Golden Age of British filmmaking, is a guaranteed source of sheer entertainment, second-to-none presentation, and extra material that will sate the most ardent cineaste’s appetite. As the collection continues to grow this year’s slate will boast additions of exciting and culturally important British films including I Am A Camera (1955), the original onscreen appearance of Christopher Isherwood’s inimitable Sally Bowles, war-time classic Appointment in London (1953), Ealing dramas Frieda (1947) and The Divided Heart (1954), and the first ever titles to join the collection directed by a woman – Wendy Toye’s The Teckman Mystery (1954) and We Joined the Navy (1962).
