Hey look at this !
A simply brilliant British 1950's film. Anybody outside of England seen this ?

It depends if it's available in Australia, my friend. Even if it is, it's probably 16:9 widescreen (like a lot of films produced on DVD or Blu Ray are), a format I can't stand . Another thing, I can tell you Spellbound has been out of print for years in this country. At any rate why pay when I can download and make my own projects (usually two classic B/W film noirs on DVD-R). It's my creative hobby (along with tennis matches).

Typical of you, my friend. You respond selectively.

It is a good film, an early one by J. Lee Thompson before he hit international fame with Guns of Navarone and Cape Fear. He and Diana Dors had made quite a number of films together. Told in flashbacks as in many film noir ,like The Killers, Out of the Past and Double Indemnity to name a few.
This was probably an anti-capital punishment statement by the director or the producer.
A bit of trivia, The Very Thought of You can be heard in the film.
I saw this film on tv many years ago as Blonde Sinner and it;s only now I realized the original title is Yield to the Night.
