For the first time ever Demand DVD in association with Celtic Arrow Media releases unseen footage of the Royal Wedding of the then Princess Elizabeth & Lieutenant Philip Mountbatten. Filmed by pioneering Cinematographer Jack Cardiff OBE, BSC ( Cinematographer – Black Narcissus, Red Shoes and latterly The African Queen and Death on the Nile (and many others) this amazing film was one of the first to be shot in the then new Technicolor process in the 1940s. It contains never seen before footage in full colour of the processions at Westminster Abbey and afterwards at Buckingham Palace in the summer of 1947.
This "lost" film becomes available now due to the fact that a copy was given by Jack Cardiff to his friend Ralph Pulley, who worked at Technicolor after the war, it has remained in the Pulley family ownership ever since and its importance was only realized as a conversation took place between Ralph’s daughter and Stanley F Mazur, a film producer who brings this DVD to Market.
The film has not been digitally enhanced; the footage and soundtrack are as on the original and coming in at just under 30 minutes it is a far cry from today’s detailed Media coverage. It is however a piece of History and provides a wonderful reminder of the times and people involved in this momentous event.
