Product Description

THE COMPLETE HUMPHREY JENNINGS VOLUME 1: THE FIRST DAYS (DVD & Blu-ray)

Films by Humphrey Jennings

Widely considered to be one of Britain's greatest filmmakers, Humphrey Jennings has long been celebrated as the director of works which beautifully capture the everyday heroism in times of war and peace.

This, the first of three volumes which collect together Jennings entire output, gathers 14 films from 1934 1940 and provides a fascinating insight into his early days as a filmmaker learning and developing his craft. It features the critically acclaimed Spare time and the rousing London Can Take It!, as well as some previously neglected works and alternative versions, many of which are made available for the first time since their original release.

Volume 1 includes the following films:

  • Post Haste (1934)
  • Locomotives (1934)
  • The Story of the Wheel (1934)
  • Farewell Topsails (1937)
  • Penny Journey (1938)
  • Speaking from America (1938)
  • The Farm (1938)
  • Making Fashion (1938)
  • Spare Time (1939)
  • SS Ionian (1939)
  • The First Days (1939)
  • Spring Offensive (1940)
  • Welfare of the Workers (1940)
  • London Can Take It! (1940)

Special features

  • Presented in High Definition and Standard Definition
  • The Birth of the Robot (1936): a Len Lye film for Shell on which Jennings collaborated
  • English Harvest (1939): an alternative cut of The Farm
  • Cargoes (1940): an alternative cut of SS Ionian
