Release Date - September 16 Formats - DVD, BD and Digital download STUDIOCANAL is delighted to announce that a newly restored version of director Joseph Losey’s (The Go-Between, Accident) gritty crime drama about the British penal system, THE CRIMINAL, will be released on September 16 on DVD, Digital Download and, for the very first time, on Blu-Ray looking better than ever as part of the Vintage Classics collection. Featuring a great British cast including Stanley Baker (Zulu, The Guns of Navarone), Sam Wanamaker (The Spy Who Came In from the Cold, Death on the Nile), Grégoire Aslan (Cleopatra, The Return of The Pink Panther), Margit Saad (Playback, The Saint) and Jill Bennett (For your Eyes Only, Moulin Rouge), THE CRIMINAL was deemed shocking upon its original release for its unashamedly graphic violence but was highly acclaimed for the beautiful stark black and white cinematography by Oscar winner Robert Krasker and cool score by jazz legend John Dankworth. THE CRIMINAL is an intelligent and naturalistic precursor to the British gangster film genre that continues to enjoy success to this day.
