Gone To Earth (PG)

Emeric Pressburger, Michael Powell. 1950/Uk Drama/Romance


Based on Mary Webb's tale - a beautiful, superstitious, animal-loving Gypsy (Jennifer Jones) is hotly desired by a fox-hunting squire...even after she marries a clergyman. In 1949 Much Wenlock was transformed into the set for this film. (Did you know … The choir was the real choir from the local Methodist chapel. When he heard them singing, director Michael Powell said they were too good and he wanted them to sound "more ragged, like a choir of country folk" only to be told "But we ARE country folk, Mr. Powell.")

Starring Cyril Cusack, Jennifer Jones


Flicks Advisor (comments from our film promoters)

This proved to be a very successful showing drawing in people from outside Bayston Hill as well.133 tickets were sold in advance.

First time we have tried a matinee (Sunday afternoon with tea beforehand) and it proved very popular. Film has wonderful Shropshire landscapes, rich colouring and good momentum.
