No Orchids For Miss Blandish DVD
Based on the best selling gangster novel by James Hadley Chase, No Orchids For Miss Blandish is one of the most controversial films ever made by a British studio. Its explosive mix of sadistic violence and sexual depravity outraged cinema audiences, critics and censors around the world. Linden Travers stars as beautiful young heiress Miss Blandish, who is kidnapped by a gang of small time hoodlums looking to break into the big league. When things go wrong, she passes into the hands of Slim Grisson (Jack La Rue) - a murderous and brutal big time gangster - and falls in love with him. Erotically attracted to his savagery, she persuades him to run away with her...but a lethal double cross is just around the corner. When the film was released, The London Evening Standard described it as 'a most vicious display of sadism, brutality and suggestiveness.' The censors who passed it were forced to make public apologies and local authorities rushed to ban it. Today, this extraordinary example of British Film Noir is still a gripping and disturbing piece of cinema history and has been digitally remastered for this very special DVD presentation.
