Directed by Anthony Kimmins
UK 1


With compelling, sympathetic performances from double Oscar nominee Burgess Meredith and accomplished Irish actor Kieron Moore, this powerful psychological drama shows the almost super-human demands of a profession that ranks amongst the most challenging. Adapted from his own novel by BAFTA-winning author and screenwriter Nigel Balchin, Mine Own Executioner is presented in a brand-new High Definition transfer from the original film elements.

Meredith stars as Felix Milne, a lay psychiatrist in post-war London who is enlisted to treat Adam Lucian, a fighter pilot deeply traumatised by his experiences in a Japanese prisoner-of-war camp. Beleaguered by emotional problems of his own, Milne embodies the mixture of dedication, self-distrust and self-criticism that characterises someone with a genuine vocation for the psychiatrist's work; but is he qualified to treat a patient as disturbed and potentially destructive as Adam?



Release: March 1st, 1947 (Cannes Film Festival)

ADDITION: (November 2018) Network - Region  'B' - Blu-ray: Firstly, great film. Wow. The highly effective "Mine Own Executioner", was released via Network in the UK on a single-layered Blu-ray. The 1.37:1 image has a supportive bitrate. "Mine Own Executioner" has plenty of light surface scratches but the 1080P layers the contrast well. Aside from looking a bit thin the image is very watchable and decent in-motion.

"Mine Own Executioner" is given a 16-bit 2.0 linear PCM mono track. Aggressive effects are minimal and the dialogue is clear and consistent. The soundtrack is by
Benjamin Frankel (notable for composing the music for the British version of Night and the City, plus some Noirish titles like Libel and The Man Who Watched Trains Go By, Footprints in the Fog as well as The Iron Petticoat and The Importance of Being Earnest) There are optional English subtitles on this Region- 'B' Blu-ray.

Network has provided an image gallery and promotional material as a PDF in the root of the disc.

This is a super little seething thriller with a conflicted and imperfect protagonist portrayed effectively by Burgess Meredith with great support from a stellar cast. This Network
Blu-ray is offered at a great price - worthwhile value here - recommended!!
