Having already obtained a decent copy of "The Clouded Yellow" I only bought this set for "never Let Go" , one of my favourite films, had a meeting with Richard Todd some years ago when he was appearing in "An Ideal Husband" at The Lyric in London. He too liked the film he told me. This Spanish release (playable in English without subs.) is an excellent transfer in the original screen ratio of 1.66:1, presented in 16 x 9 anamorphic, a great improvement on all the releases so far in fact the best I could have ever hoped to have seen
I guess in the fifties this must have been exciting but in that respect it doesn't stand the test of time. I found it mildly interesting as I might find a museum piece or a bit of social history: Britain in the age when rationing was still in force. And of course, it's always of interest to see stalwarts of the British post war movie industry doing their thing but there are so much better films to watch than this. It represents something of a decline for Howard when set against masterpieces like Carol Reed's The Third man or David Lean's Brief Encounter and neither does it stand comparison with Hitchcock's early British thrillers with which it's been bracketed.
