The Frightened City new restoration on Blu-ray
2021 marks 60 years of The Frightened City
In this 60th anniversary year of the film, a brand new restoration of the 1961 British neo-noir gangster tale “The Frightened City” is available on Blu-ray & DVD from the 12th of April 2021.
Seduction, guns, judo, and drinks – with hindsight it makes perfect sense that Cubby Broccoli would want to cast the vital Scotsman as 007 after seeing Connery steal this tale of London crime gangs and protection rackets.
The world premiere of “The Frightened City” took place at the Odeon Marble Arch in London on 9th August 1961.
Marks is actually the puppet of criminal mastermind Zhernikov (Herbert Lom), who has the image of a respectable businessman, but is in fact manipulating the local mobsters for his own ends.
Also caught up in the underworld are the beautiful Anya (Yvonne Romain), an aspiring singer who is Zhernikov’s mistress, to whom Paddy immediately takes a shine, and Sayers (John Gregson) the dedicated cop trying to crack down on organised crime.
Pre-order the Blu-ray or DVD, due for release on the 12th of April 2021, via Amazon.
