Product Details

After 50 years of controversy, this Michael Powell and Emeric Pressburger classic can finally be seen as The Archers had originally intended. Restored and digitally re-mastered, this is the original 1950 version of the film that Selznick eventually released 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, with all but 35 minutes of Powell and Pressburger’s original remaining. Seen by most critics as and a far more superior film, Gone to Earth is now recognized as one of Powell and Pressburger’s most beautiful films with stunning photography, superb performances, glorious Technicolor 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 affections and pursues her even after her marriage to local pastor.
