The Informer (DVD)
Directed by Arthur Robison
The Informer (1929) is one of the finest British films of the 1920s and deserves a place alongside other silent greats such as A Cottage on Dartmoor (1929). Based on Liam O’Flaherty’s popular Irish novel (which John Ford famously adapted in 1935), this gripping thriller is set among a group of revolutionaries in the newly independent Ireland of 1922. When one of their number kills the chief of police, he goes on the run. But when he returns to Dublin he is cruelly betrayed by his onetime friend Gypo, who then has to battle his old friends as well as his own mounting guilt.
Kino Classics is proud to present this restoration by the BFI National Archive, along with a score from acclaimed violist and composer Garth Knox. This disc also includes the rare sound version, which was produced at the same time as the more widely known silent release.
DVD Extras Include:
THE SOUND VERSION OF THE INFORMER (1929, 84 MINUTES) RESTORATION DEMONSTRATION (2016, 5 MINUTES)
