    Release Date:

    After 50 years of controversy, this rare Powell and Pressburger classic can finally be seen as The Archers has originally intended. Restored and digitally re-mastered, this is the original 1950 version of the film that Selznick eventually as `The Wild Heart` in 1952.
    Dissatisfied with the original film, Selznick hired director Rouben Mamoulain to direct new scenes while cutting others. After he had finished `The Wild Heart` ran for only 82 minutes, compared to the 110 minute `Gone To Earth`, will all but 35 minutes of Powell and Pressburger`s original remaining. Seen by most critics as and a far superior film, `Gone To Earth` is now recognised as one of Powell and Pressburger`s most beautiful films with stunning photography, superb performances, glorious Technicolour and a haunting music score by Brian Easdale.

    Jennifer Jones plays Hazel Woods, a beautiful young English Gypsy girl who loves animals and in particular her pet fox. She is hotly desired by Jack Reddin (David Farrar) a fox-hunting squire who vies for her affection and pursues her even after her marriage to the local pastor.
