Just one for January????

NEW UK TITLE: Born Yesterday (Blu-ray)

We have just the thing to cure those post-Christmas January blues!

From one of the truly legendary directors of the Hollywood’s golden era, George Cukor (My Fair Lady, The Philadelphia Story), comes the beloved comedy-classic Born Yesterday...

Release Date: 21st January

"Judy Holliday (Bells Are Ringing) gives an unforgettable, Oscar-winning performance as Billie Dawn, the ‘dumb blonde’ girlfriend of corrupt millionaire junkyard tycoon Harry Brock (Broderick Crawford, All The King's Men). A man with social ambitions, Harry is embarrassed by Billie’s uncouth behaviour and lack of social refinement, so he sends her on on a crash course in culture with young journalist Paul Verrall (William Holden, Network, The Bridge on the River Kwai). Billie proves to be an able student in lessons of life and love, whilst also becoming all too aware of her partners crooked business dealings. Emboldened by her new education, she stands up to Harry and his bad ways.

Acclaimed for its delectably witty screenplay (based on Garson Kanin's smash-hit Broadway production), Born Yesterday is a tour de force of comic acting, which boasts sizzling performances from its main players and pitch-perfect direction from Cukor. The film is presented here for the first time in stunning High Definition, with a selection of informative and entertaining extras.
