The Films of Basil Dearden
If Basil Dearden isn't often listed among the great directors of his time we can blame the culture before doubting the man. A craftsman who did the hardest thing (making it look easy), Dearden hopped genres without treating any as something to skimp on. In this collection you'll find mysteries, comedies (or both in the case of the Benny Hill-starring Who Done It?), wartime dramas, noir, and pure thrills, all with the assuredness of a studio system that knew how to give artists what they need.
