With the 64th Cannes International Film Festival now in full swing, we’re pleased to be in attendance representing three restored classic titles which we hope to bring to a wider international audience. Each film will be shown at the Festival’s outdoor cinema, the Cinéma de la Plage.
Our first screening is Grover Crisp and Sony Pictures restoration of Wolfgang Petersen’s epic war movie, Das Boot: The Director’s Cut, which was released in 1997, 16 years after the original. This longer version can be seen this evening at 9.30pm.
Next up, on Monday at 9.30pm, is the Grover Crisp/Sony Pictures restoration of 1954’s The Caine Mutiny, director Edward Dmytryk’s version of Herman Wouk’s Pulitzer Prize-winning novel. The film stars Humphrey Bogart and Fred McMurray as shipmates during WWII, aboard a destroyer-cum-minesweeper.
Finally, on Tuesday at 9.30pm, attendees will have the chance to see Roy Ward Baker’s take on the Titanic disaster, 1958’s A Night to Remember, in a digital restoration by ITV Studios Global Entertainment. Kenneth More, Ronald Allen and Honor Blackman star.
We hope any of our blog readers in Cannes will come and say hello before or after the screening!
