“Among Ford’s most personal and ambitious movies…about the claustrophobia, craziness, and complacent despair of modern life.” — Tag Gallagher, John Ford: The Man and His Films
Based on J J Marric’s popular series of police procedurals and scripted by Ealing comedy ace T.E.B. Clarke (THE LAVENDER HILL MOB), this highly entertaining British excursion by American maestro Ford follows a Scotland Yard inspector (Hawkins) through a “typical” day, in the course of which he deals with two murderers, three bank robbers, a rapist, a corrupt cop, and his daughter’s concert performance. Drastically cut and released in black and white (despite being shot in color by the great Freddie Young) in its initial U.S. run, GIDEON OF SCOTLAND YARD is presented in a new 4K DCP digital restoration of the complete color British version.
