As the 1960s beckoned, a new mood swept through Britain. With anger mounting at an out-of-touch establishment, the era was reflected onscreen by the rise of Woddfall Films. Founded in 1958 by director Tony Richardson, writer John Osborne and producer Harry Saltzman, the company pioneered the British New Wave, defining an incendiary brand of social realism. In films like Look Back in Anger(1959) and Saturday Nightand Sunday Morning (1960) working-class life was spot-lit with unheard-of honesty. The same risk-taking spirit led the company to find a new generation of brilliant young actors to star in their films, including Albert Finney, Tom Coutenay and Rita Tushingham. Films like Tom Jones (1963) then expanded the Woodfalls late in an irreverent, colourful direction that helped define swinging London– further securing their extraordinary chapter in the history of British Film. From 1958–1984 Woodfall produced twenty award-winning often genre defining films. Here, presented for the first time are eight of Woodfall’s early ground-breaking films, many newly restored and remastered.
