The Passionate Stranger
Pairing Margaret Leighton and Ralph Richardson, two of Britain's most accomplished film and stage actors, The Passionate Stranger is a gentle satire on the conventions of the romantic novel and the perils of confusing reality with fiction.
Directed in inventive fashion by Oscar winner Muriel Box (sharing writing credits with husband Sydney Box), this hugely engaging comedy is made available here in a brand-new transfer from the original elements in its as-exhibited theatrical aspect ratio.
Judith Wynter is a happily married novelist whose romantic works are eagerly devoured by scores of female readers. When Carlo, a handsome young Italian chauffeur, arrives to work for Judith and her husband, a professor currently recovering from an attack of paralysis, he causes quite a flutter; when he then reads the manuscript of Judith's latest novel, he jumps to a rather unfortunate conclusion... and life in the Wynter household becomes very complicated indeed!

If ordering from a UK store, please note that you are in Region 1 (DVD)/Region A (Blu-ray), whilst the UK is in Region 2/B, respectively. This means that many - but by no means all - may fail to play. Look for products marked "Region free", "All regions", "Region 0" or "Multi-region". Blu-rays may also be marked "Region A/B/C", "Region free", or variations thereof. You may also check whether your DVD/Blu-ray player supports multi-region playback (also referred to as "region free"), or whether it can be set to do so. There should, of course, be no problems with books, CDs, or other physical items.
