"Broderick Crawford (The Undercover Man) goes up against the Mob in this exposé of underworld involvement in America’s docklands.

'711 Ocean Drive' (1950) - Standard edition Blu Ray pre-order available at PowerHouse Films direct - £9:99

Release date: October 24

"Edmund O’Brien (The Web) gets involved in the mob’s bookmaking racket in 711 Ocean Drive, also starring Joanne Dru (Red River), and Otto Kruger (Escape in the Fog).

Telephone operator Mal Granger uses his technical knowledge to run an illegal bookmaking operation, but when Granger falls for a mobster’s wife, and with both the police and the syndicate on his tail, it’s only a matter of time before his luck runs out.

With a ‘ripped from the headlines’ approach which required the crew to have police protection on location, 711 Ocean Drive is a riveting film noir, one made with such realism by director Joseph M Newman (Abandoned) that it was shown to a Senate investigation into organised crime."

  • High Definition presentation
  • Original mono audio
  • Audio commentary with author and film critic Glenn Kenny (2021)
  • Diary of a Sergeant (1945, 24 mins): Joseph M Newman’s documentary portrait of Harold Russell, a soldier who lost his hands during World War II and would later win an Oscar for his performance in The Best Years of Our Lives

"Joseph Losey’s lurid and often misunderstood drama stars the great Elizabeth Taylor (Suddenly, Last Summer) as an ageing London prostitute who befriends a young woman (Mia Farrow, See No Evil) that reminds her of her long-dead daughter. As the bizarre relationship between the two evolves, the appearance of Robert Mitchum (Cape Fear), as Farrow’s abusive stepfather, ignites deep emotions and dark passions.

'The Snake Pit' (1948) - Standard edition Blu Ray pre-order available at PowerHouse Films direct - £9:99

Release date: October 24

"Shocking and highly controversial at the time of release, The Snake Pit broke new ground in Hollywood cinema for its depiction of mental illness and its treatment. Olivia de Havilland (Gone with the Wind, The Heiress), delivers an astounding performance as a young bride who suffers a breakdown and finds herself committed to an asylum.

Director Anatole Litvak (Sorry, Wrong Number, Anastasia) had to fight to persuade producer Darryl Zanuck to back the film, but the result remains one of the most potent and powerful films to tackle the subject and was an influence on later works such as Sam Fuller’s Shock Corridor (1963), Robert Rossen’s Lilith (1964) and Miloš Forman’s One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest (1975)"


Special Features
  • 4K restoration
  • Original mono audio
  • Audio commentary with author and film historian Aubrey Solomon
  • The Battles of Olivia de Havilland (2019, 10 mins): critic and film historian Pamela Hutchinson discusses the revered actor’s illustrious career
  • Under Analysis (2019, 31 mins): an in-depth appreciation by author and film historian Neil Sinyard
  • Original theatrical trailer
  • Image gallery: on-set and promotional photography
  • New and improved English subtitles for the deaf and hard of hearing

The only one I've seen is Invitation To Hell and that was back in the day of magnetic tape and from what I remember was a bit like Satan's Slave or Midnight.

Anyway it's low budget Brit horror,so it's a no-brainer for me!

Are the postcards related to the film or general movie poster ones of things like The Swimmer?
