THE PUMPKIN EATER available soon.

Although neither Amazon or LoveFilm seem to be aware of it (surprise, surprise!) Jack Clayton's great film THE PUMPKIN EATER is released on DVD in October. Made i n 1964 this was one of the great British films of the period although it is virtually forgotten today except by dedicated cinephiles. Great direction, great script (Harold Pinter) and superb performances by Anne Bancroft, Peter Finch and James Mason.
