An opportunity to buy a brand-new PAL DVD of the only film which Edward G. Robinson made in England in the 1930s:


Thunder in the City, 1936, starring Edward G. Robinson

Running Time: approximately 87 minutes

The source material is very good overall, given the age of the print

The picture quality is acceptable - but with slightly 'soft' contrast of the picture image overall.

The sound is variable, usually quite high, but this can be compensated for by adjusting your volume to suit yourself.

OVERALL QUALITY rated at 6.5 out of 10.

Your brand-new DVD disc will be created from this source material (without any artwork), and will be supplied in a clear plastic wallet, NOT in a DVD case.


Note that the picture attached is for illustrative purposes only, and is therefore NOT included or offered with this listing.


Region 2:

IMPORTANT NOTE for American, Canadian and other non-Region 2 buyers:

You will need a multi-region DVD player to play this disc.

Director: Marion Gering

Cast: Edward G. Robinson, with Luli Deste, Nigel Bruce, Constance Collier, Ralph Richardson and Arthur Wontner

Produced by Alexander Esway for Atlantic Films

Please note that, whilst this film is complete and very watchable, the source material from which the DVD is taken is slightly “soft”.

Synopsis:  In this satire of British-American relations, Edward G. Robinson stars as Dan Armstrong, a hard-sell American salesman whose company sends him to England to learn how to tone down his act. There he meets some distant relatives, the aristocrats Sir Peter and Lady Challoner (Arthur Wontner and Annie Esmond). They invite him to their mansion for the weekend, where among the house guests are the penniless aristocrats the Duke and Duchess of Glenavon (Nigel Bruce and Constance Collier) and their daughter Lady Patricia (Luli Deste), as well as a conniving stockbroker, Henry Graham Manningdale (Ralph Richardson). The Duke and Duchess own only an apparently worthless mine in Rhodesia that supposedly contains a metal called magnelite.  Manningdale says that he will develop the mine in exchange for permission to marry Lady Patricia. Armstrong also has designs on Patricia, however, and he engineers a scheme to start a company and sell stock in the mine.

Edward G. Robinson made this film in England during his contract dispute with Warner Bros., roughly at the same time that Bette Davis and James Cagney had similar clashes with that studio.

Please read all the details of this listing so you know exactly what you are buying.

What will I receive? Your film will come on a DVD-R disc in a plastic DVD sleeve with no artwork. The title of the film will be written on the sleeve for your convenience.

Region 2 - PAL

Note: This DVD does not contain any menus.

This film is now in the public domain.
