Joseph Losey Collection

£24.99 Out Of Stock

Product description

The 8-disc box set is complete with both cases and all discs. All the discs and packaging are in very good condition.

Collection of feature films directed by Joseph Losey. In 'The Sleeping Tiger' (1954), a psychiatrist brings a criminal into his home as an experiment in rehabilitation after catching the thief red-handed trying to break into his house. The patient seems to be making progress until the psychiatrist's wife falls in love with him putting his recovery back significantly. During his three years in prison, 'The Criminal' (1960), Johnny Bannion (Stanley Baker), has been devising his next robbery. Once out of prison he pulls off the heist and buries the money, but is arrested before he can tell the rest of the gang of its whereabouts. The gang eventually spring him from jail, but make a mistake that may mean they never see the money at all. 'Eva' (1962) is a psychological drama set in Venice, where a Welsh novelist (Baker) falls in love with a scheming, gold-digging Frenchwoman named Eva (Jeanne Moreau). Realising that Eva will never love him, the novelist marries the beautiful Francesca (Virna Lisi) who in turn loses her will to live when she discovers her husband's secretly harboured desires.

In 'The Servant' (1963), spoiled young British aristocrat Tony (James Fox) buys a handsome Georgian townhouse and employs Hugo Barrett (Dirk Bogarde) as his manservant. Initially appearing to settle in well to his new position, Barrett soon begins to exert his influence over his master with the overall goal of getting rid of Tony's girlfriend Susan (Wendy Craig) with whom Barrett does not get along. In 'Accident' (1967), two Oxford students, William (Michael York) and Anna (Jacqueline Sassard), crash their car outside their professor Stephen (Bogarde)'s house. The lecturer finds William dead and Anna in shock, and the horrifying spectacle in front of him triggers memories of their previous meeting.

It transpires that Anna had been having an affair with one of the professor's colleagues, and, in a flashback to a dinner party, it is revealed what part Stephen had to play in the fall-out of the relationship. In 'The Go-Between' (1970), a young teenage boy, Leo (Dominic Guard), is invited to his wealthy school friend Marcus (Richard Gibson)'s family estate and is drawn into a love affair with Marcus's sister, Marian (Julie Christie). As he discovers that Marian is engaged to be married to Hugh (Edward Fox), a viscount of high-standing in the county, Leo doubts his ethics and starts to figure out a way to get out of the affair. In 'Mr. Klein' (1976), while the Nazis are undergoing the deportation of French Jews from occupied France, a Parisian art dealer (Alain Delon) discovers that he has a Jewish counterpart with the same name, for whom he is mistaken...
