Network Distributing are pleased to announce the first home-entertainment release of Oh… Rosalinda!
Visionary British filmmakers Michael Powell and Emeric Pressburger revisited the world of music and ballet once more with the spectacular Oh… Rosalinda! - the comedy adaptation of Johan Strauss's operetta Die Fledermaus, updated to post-war Vienna. A scintillating, light-hearted musical, it features memorable performances from a stellar cast including Michael Redgrave, Mel Ferrer, Anthony Quayle, Anton Walbrook and prima ballerina Ludmilla Tcherina as the titular Rosalinda!
Vienna, 1955 - a city under occupation by the four Allied powers. Through the chaos Dr Falke moves gracefully - an elegant man-about-town and friend to the highest echelons of power. He is decidedly less graceful, however, when he is deposited by a friend in the lap of a giant Soviet statue, rather the worse for drink and dressed as a giant bat. Falke swears revenge...
Previously unreleased on home-video, Oh… Rosalinda! has been roundly ignored making this ‘lost’ film’s debut on blu-ray, DVD and Amazon Video a cause for a Champagne celebration and an opportunity for this unabashedly eccentric film to be reappraised and rediscovered. It is presented here as a brand-new High Definition transfer from the original film elements in its original CinemaScope aspect ratio.
Oh Rosalinda! is released as part of The British Film collection which already boasts Powell & Pressburger’s Black Narcissus and Michael Redgrave starring features The Importance of Being Earnest, The Lady Vanishes and Law and Disorder - To see a list of upcoming titles and those already available please visit - www.thebritishfilm.co.ukTo enter simply name a show on our new Theatre Tickets Directory.
