The Amazing Mr Blunden in March

image

From the creator of the The Railway Children comes the equally magical and much-loved classic THE AMAZING MR BLUNDEN, which finally gets a long-awaited DVD re-release from Second Sight Films.

This powerful British drama from the late Lionel Jeffries is based on Antonia Barbarís novel The Ghosts and stars a stellar cast of British acting talent including Laurence Naismith, Lynne Frederick and Diana Dors. It has been hugely in demand but unavailable for many years and now comes to DVD on 11 March 2013.

A mysterious and kindly old solicitor called Mr Blunden pays a visit to recently widowed Mrs Allen and her children offering her the position of caretaker at a derelict country mansion. Struggling in their cramped London flat they cannot refuse and soon arrive at their new home. More surprises are in store when the children not only encounter the ghosts of two previous young residents but also find themselves going back in time to help them right a 100-year-old wrong.

The Amazing Mr Blunden was selected by Mark Gatiss as his neglected classic of the 1970s on Radio Fourís The Film Programme.
