You’d think by now that every great classic film would be available on DVD by now but on Monday 23rd April two unreleased films to UK DVD finally come out: Freud – directed by the legendary John Huston is a magnificent film noir starring Montgomery Clift, whilst The Execution of Private Slovik – an 8 Emmy Award nominated war classic – stars the always brilliant Martin Sheen. And we’ve got a copy of each of the films to give away to one lucky person.
It always amazes me how few Montgomery Clift films people have seen, as he was a superb actor. He was also of course secretly gay at a time when homosexuality was still illegal, something he battled with all his life and which contributed to his alcoholism and early death. Freud was his final leading role, as his declining health made film appearances increasingly difficult after 1962.
The Execution of Private Slovik meanwhile is about the man who in 1944 became the only man executed by the US military since the Civil War for desertion.
If you’d like to try and win the copy of Freud and The Execution of Private Slovik that we’ve got to give away, answer the question below and fill in your details, then press submit! The competition closes on May 3rd, so get answering and good luck!
