STUDIOCANAL is delighted to announce the release of a newly restored version of the classic British war film, ODETTE, on June 10. Released to coincide with the 75th Anniversary of D-Day on June 6, director Herbert Wilcox’s (Sixty Glorious Years, Spring in Park Lane) moving story based on true events was originally released in 1950 and will be available to own on DVD, Digital Download and, for the very first time, on Blu-Ray looking better than ever as part of the Vintage Classics collection. To celebrate the release we are giving YOU a chance to win a copy of Odette on Blu-ray.

Starring Anna Neagle (Lady and the Lamp, Maytime in Mayfair), Trevor Howard (The Third Man, Brief Encounter), Peter Ustinov (Spartacus, Billy Budd) and Marius Goring (The Red Shoes, A Matter of Life and Death), the new release comes complete with brand new extras material including an exclusive interview with author Sebastian Faulks. The new digital restoration has been completed from a new 4k 16bit scan of the original 35mm negative.

ODETTE is the inspiring true story of a French-born heroine, Odette Sansom (Anna Neagle) who leaves behind her three young daughters and life in Britain to return to her occupied homeland to spy for the Special Operations Executive (SOE) during the Second World War. Smuggled into France to work with Radio Operator Alex Rabinovich (Peter Ustinov) and Captain Peter Churchill (Trevor Howard), Odette skillfully works with the SOE until her capture by the Gestapo.

Taken to Ravensbruck concentration camp, Odette must survive interrogation and torture as the Nazi Commandant attempts to extract her secrets and the names of her fellow Resistance fighters.

ODETTE is part of the ‘Vintage Classics collection’ – showcasing iconic British films, all fully restored and featuring brand new extra content - on DVD, Blu-ray & Download on June 10
