  Kidnapped on DVD [read more]
  SOS from RLS
  BASED on the novels by Robert Louis Stevenson (The Body Snatcher) and directed by Oscar-winning Delbert Mann (Marty), this epic, star-studded adventure sees Michael Caine (The Ipcress File) in the role of a Jacobite rebel who befriends an orphan fleeing a life of slavery.

Kidnapped is released on DVD on 1 August 2016, RRP £9.99, courtesy of Network's The British Film collection.

A strong drama with a moving score from Roy Budd (and end theme sung by folk legend Mary Hopkin), Kidnapped co-stars Jack Hawkins (Ben Hur), Donald Pleasence (The Great Escape), Trevor Howard (Gandhi) and Gordon Jackson (The Professionals), and is featured here in its as-exhibited Panavision theatrical aspect ratio.

1746: as defeated Jacobite rebels flee Government forces in the aftermath of the Battle at Culloden, 18-year-old orphan David Balfour's attempts to claim his inheritance results in his incarceration on a slaver ship, heading for the West Indies. Luckily for David, the ship's captain runs afoul of Alan Breck, and both Breck and David make their bloody escape.
