APPOINTMENT IN LONDON

APPOINTMENT IN LONDONIn this British classic directed by William Sylvester, Wing Commander Tim Mason (Sir Dirk Bogarde) leads a squadron of Lancaster bombers on almost nightly raids from England. Having flown eighty-seven missions, he will shortly be retiring from flying, but the strain is showing. With losses mounting and several raids being seen as failures, members of his crew, Brown (Bill Kerr) and ‘The Brat’ Greeno (Bryan Forbes) among them, are thinking that there must be a ‘jinx’ at work. Trying to make sure his men concentrate only on their job, Mason keeps women away from the base until he meets Naval Officer Eve Canyon (Dinah Sheridan). The outstanding supporting cast includes Ian Hunter, William Sylvester, Bill Kerr, and uncredited Nigel Stock and the ubiquitous Sam Kydd. Part of the Romulus Film Catalogue, Appointment in London is a much loved though rarely seen war film and is now available on Blu-Ray for the first time released in a newly-restored version. DVD and Digital versions have also been released at the same time. Featuring brand-new bonus material and looking better than ever, the film is a welcome addition to Studicanal’s ever-expanding Vintage Classics collection.

Send your name, address and the answer to competition@new-classics.co.uk by 27 July  2022, and the best of luck.
