The Wild Heart / Gone to Earth (Special Edition) (DVD)
Directed by Michael Powell and Emeric Pressburger
Screen legend Jennifer Jones (Portrait of Jennie) stars as the young, beguiling Hazel Woodus in 1897 Shropshire, England. More than the people around her, she loves and understands the wild animals of the countryside, especially her pet fox. Whenever she has problems, she turns to the book of spells and charms left to her by her gypsy mother. When dashing local squire Jack Reddin (David Farrar, Hour of Glory) begins to pursue Hazel—despite her marriage to Baptist minister Edward Marston (Cyril Cusack, Fahrenheit 451)—a struggle for her body and soul ensues. This special edition includes both the original 1950 film, Gone to Earth, and the Roadshow Edition of producer David O. Selznick’s (Duel in the Sun) 1952 re-edit, The Wild Heart. Produced, written and directed by Michael Powell and Emeric Pressburger (The Red Shoes) and stunningly shot in color by Christopher Challis (A Shot in the Dark).
DVD Extras Include:
Includes the Roadshow Edition of THE WILD HEART and the Original Longer Cut, GONE TO EARTH
NEW Audio Commentary by Film Historian Samm Deighan GONE TO EARTH
NEW Audio Commentary by Film Historian Troy Howarth THE WILD HEART
