(John Guillermin, 1957)
Release date: 19 March 2018
Limited Blu-ray Edition (World Blu-ray premiere)

Investigating a murder in a small English town, a brusque Police Inspector (John Mills – Hobson's Choice, Ice Cold in Alex, Young Winston) discovers that virtually everyone he encounters has something to hide. Setting the template for British crime thrillers for decades to come (including recent TV hit Broadchurch), director John Guillermin’s audacious, often salacious, drama is untypical of mainstream British cinema of its time. An intelligent and gripping police-procedural thriller and macabre melodrama, Town on Trial is a rare treat which is ripe for rediscovery.
