We’ve gone wild about Wilder!

In June two of Oscar-winning director Billy Wilders greatest, Double Indemnity and The Lost Weekend.

The Lost Weekend, a gut-wrenching adaptation of Charles Jackson’s The Lost Weekend horrified its studio, was rejected by test audiences, and was lobbied by temperance groups, yet went on to huge success and became the awards sensation of its year.

Double Indemnity is the dazzling, quintessential film noir whose enormous popular success and seven Oscar nominations catapulted Billy Wilder into the very top tier of Hollywood’s writer-directors. Adapted from a novella by James M. Cain, co-written by Wilder and Raymond Chandler, Double Indemnity remains the hardest-boiled of delectations.

Both discs are bursting with amazing special features and each come with an informative booklet containing essays, archival imagery and more. These are available from 25th June in standard and Limited Edition SteelBook Packaging.

Coming in July Giorgio Moroder Presents: Metropolis and in The Masters of Cinema Series two films from maestro Pier Paolo Pasolini Pigsty and Hawks and Sparrows
