Renown Pictures release Blind Date, Paul Temple Returns and Desert Mice on dvd

Renown Pictures Ltd is delighted to announce the release of our next three titles.

BAFTA NOMINATED BLIND DATE aka Chance Meeting
Dutch painter Jan-Van Rooyer (Hardy Kruger) hurries to keep a rendezvous with Jacqueline Cousteau (Micheline Presle), an elegant, sophisticated Frechwoman, slightly his elder, whose relationship with him had turned from art student into one of love trysts. He arrives and is confronted by Detective Police Inspector Morgan (Stanley Baker) who accuses him of having murdered Jacqueline.
Directed By Joseph Losey
Produced By David Deutsch and Luggi Waldleitner
Year Of Production 1959 (B&W)
Running Time 91 mins
Cast Stanley Baker, Micheline Presle, Hardy Kruger, John Van Eyssen, Gordon Jackson, Robert Flemyng, Jack MacGowan, Redmond Phillips, George Roubicek, Lee Montague

PAUL TEMPLE RETURNS aka BOMBAY WATERFRONT
‘Paul Temple Returns’, John Bentley – playing Temple for the third time – was completely at ease in the role, he seldom gave a bad performance and he was well supported here by Patricia Dainton (as Steve). The plot revolves around Temple’s efforts to aid the police in solving a series of gruesome murders and leaves us with the inevitable feeling of ‘However could Scotland Yard have managed without him…’
Directed By Mclean Rogers
Year Of Production 1952 (B&W)
Running Time 71 mins
Cast John Bentley, Patricia Dainton, Christopher Lee, Peter Gawthorne, Valentine Dyall, Ronald Leigh-Hunt, Ben Williams, Grey Blake, Arthur Hill, Robert Urquhart, Dan Jackson

DESERT MICE
A fantastic cast star in this World War 11 comedy farce, featuring the antics of an eclectic mix of entertainers of an organisation that called itself Entertainment National Service Association. Known as ENSA for short, or, rather cruelly, Every Night Something Awful! Fresh from the music halls, they certainly give the camp the run around in more ways than one, and bumble their way to triumph!
Directed By Michael Relph
Produced By Basil Dearden
Year Of Production 1959 (B&W)
Running Time 81 mins
Cast Sidney James, Dora Bryan, Alfred Marks, Liz Fraser, Dick Bentley, Reginald Beckwith, Irene Handl, Kenneth Fortescue, Patricia Bredin, Joan Benham, Marius Goring, Anthony Bushell, George Rose, Alan Tilvern, Philo Hauser
