Description

One of the most controversial films of the 1940s, the gangster thriller No Orchids for Miss Blandish caused outrage amongst critics, cinema audiences and censors alike on both sides of the Atlantic when it was first released in 1948.

Virginal young heiress Miss Blandish (Linden Travers) is kidnapped by a couple of small time hoods, only to find herself seized from them by gangster Slim Grissom (Jack LaRue). He isn't just interested in her for the ransom money - and neither are the other members of the Grissom gang. Despite her terrifying ordeal, Miss Blandish finds herself perversely attracted to the gang leader. They plan to run off together, but amongst gang leaders life is cheap - and a double cross is always just around the corner...

Based on the best-selling novel by James Hadley Chase, No Orchids for Miss Blandish's mixture of sex, sadism and gutter morals outraged the world. The book itself was ferociously condemned, provoking George Orwell to defend it as 'a brilliant piece of writing'. It was also the most-read book amongst members of Britain's armed forces during the Second World War.

Now, available on DVD for the very first time, this steamy crime classic has not lost its power to provoke and shock..., One of the most controversial films of the 1940s, the gangster thriller No Orchids for Miss Blandish caused outrage amongst critics, cinema audiences and censors alike on both sides of the Atlantic when it was first released in 1948.
