Gone to Earth / The Wild Heart 07/09/19
Classic cinematics from first-rank filmmakers. No ballet or heroism, so not a crowd pleaser, but Michael Powell’s original version Gone to Earth is another unique Archers creation. Jennifer Jones finally gets to chew on a character role with grit, as a natural virgin/vixen misunderstood by contrasting suitors. David O. Selznick’s revision The Wild Heart is a classic too — of unnecessary meddling. Co-Starring David Farrar and Cyril Cusack; both the Archers’ original and Selznick’s recut are included, each with a commentary. On Blu-ray from KL Studio Classics.
