  Ice Cold in Alex on Blu-ray, DVD and digital [read more]
  Worth waiting for
  A new 60th Anniversary, 4K restoration edition of one of the greatest war films of all time ICE COLD IN ALEX (1958) is OUT NOW on Blu-ray, DVD and Digital Download. Featuring brand new extras, this blistering, action-packed wartime epic will release as part of STUDIOCANAL's Vintage Classics Collection - a showcase of iconic British films, all fully restored and featuring brand new extra content.

1942: The Libyan war zone, North Africa. After a German invasion a British ambulance crew are forced to evacuate their base but become separated from the rest of their unit. Somehow they must make it to Alexandria, but how? Their only hope is a dilapidated ambulance named Katy and an irrational, alcoholic soldier known as Captain Anson. Facing landmines, a Nazi attack, suffocating quicksand and the relentlessly brutal and unforgiving Sahara desert, can Captain Anson face his demons and make the road to hell a journey to freedom?

Winner of the FIPRESCI Prize and nominated for the Golden Bear Award at Berlin International Film Festival, the film was also nominated for 4 BAFTAs including Best British Film, Best Screenplay and Best British Actor for Anthony Quayle on its initial release.

Special Premiere Screening at Glasgow Film Festival
Thursday 22nd February, Glasgow Film Theatre 1, 12.40pm.
