The Smallest Show on Earth from BAFTA-winning director Basil Dearden is set for a digitally remastered release on 11th March from Network Distributing, as part of The British Film: Phase II.
Overjoyed to learn that they’ve inherited a cinema in the north of England, Matt and Jean Spenser are subsequently shattered to find it’s less of a grand picture palace and more of a fleapit (with three equally decrepit employees). Can the couple make a go of it or will they be forced to sell up and watch the Bijou Kinema be redeveloped into a car park?
Starring comedy legend Peter Sellers, Margaret Rutherford, Virginia McKenna and Bill Travers alongside co-stars Bernard Miles, Leslie Phillips and Sid James, The Smallest Show on Earth is a gently whimsical elegy to the golden age of cinema. It is presented in a brand-new High Definition transfer from the original film elements in its original theatrical aspect ratio.
The Smallest Show on Earth is released on 11th March 2019. DVD RRP £12.99, Blu-ray RRP £17.99. Available to pre-order now from Amazon.
