Brief Encounter (Blu-ray)
Directed by Alan Bridges
John Le Mesurier
A Scorpion Release! Screen legends Richard Burton (Where Eagles Dare, The Night of the Iguana, Becket) and Sophia Loren (Two Women, Blood Feud, Marriage Italian Style) headline this 1974 remake of the 1945 David Lean classic, based on a play by Noël Coward and starring Trevor Howard and Celia Johnson. A social worker (Loren) and a doctor (Burton) meet by chance in a railway station, but are almost instantly captivated by each other, although they are each already married. The pair soon develop a connection that evolves into an unexpected love. Alan Bridges (The Hireling, Out of Season) directed this Carol Ponti (Doctor Zhivago, Blow-Up) production and bittersweet drama about muted romance. The wonderful supporting cast include the great character actor John Le Mesurier (The Italian Job, Salt and Pepper).
