Description
Collection of films made in the 1960s by Danziger Studios, run by brothers Edward and Harry Lee. Horror 'The Tell-Tale Heart' (1960), adapted from Edgar Allan Poe's short story of the same name, follows Edgar Marsh (Laurence Payne), a quiet librarian with an obsessive nature. When he falls for his neighbour, Betty Clare (Adrienne Corri), who is having an affair with his friend, Carl Loomis (Dermot Walsh), Edgar becomes increasingly jealous. Driven into a mad rage, he brutally murders Carl, but, unable to bear the guilt, Edgar is haunted by the sound of his victim's beating heart. Comedy 'Part-Time Wife' (1961) stars Anton Rogers as Tom, a failing businessman, who has just married the light of his life, Jenny (Nyree Dawn Porter). Desperate to make a success of his career, Tom enlists the help of his old friend from the army, Drew (Kenneth J Warren), by trying to sell him car insurance for the company fleet. Drew, a womanising charlatan, has an agenda of his own and agrees to a deal. But in exchange he wants Jenny to pretend to be his wife to help him persuade his uncle that he is happily married. While Drew and Jenny keep up the pretence of their relationship, poor Tom has to do everything in his power to guarantee all goes according to plan to protect the most important deal of his life and safeguard his new bride's innocence. Comedy 'The Battleaxe' (1962) stars Francis Matthews and Jill Ireland as newly engaged couple Tony Evers and Audrey Page. The young lovers' happiness is short lived, however, when Audrey's mother (Joan Haythorne) makes it her life's mission to make sure the marriage does not go ahead. In drama 'Fate Takes a Hand' (1962) a postman and a reporter discover a mail bag of post taken during a robbery 15 years prior. They make it their mission to deliver the letters consequently changing the lives of five individuals forever. Comedy 'Two Wives at One Wedding' (1961) stars Gordon Jackson and Christina Gregg as Tom and Janet, a couple about to be married. Their wedding day, however, is disrupted by the arrival of a French woman called Annette (Lisa Daniely) claiming to be Tom's wife. It emerges that, while injured near Normandy during the Second World War, Annette nursed Tom back to health. A romance blossomed between them and they were married. Tom, though, has no recollection of this ever taking place. Annette claims she has come for a divorce and wants a settlement of 10,000 pounds to leave without a fuss. With the prospect of his medical career on the line should the papers get hold of the story, and the threat of blackmail hanging over his head, Tom decides to takes matters into his own hands and investigate what really happened in order to find out if what Annette says really is the truth. Also included in the collection is the documentary 'Danziger Studios - the Untold Elstree Story' which features interviews with those who worked at the studio and archive footage capturing all the activity from behind the scenes.
