Plot Sypnosis:

From Alistair MacLean, the legendary author of The Guns of Navarone, Where Eagles Dare, Ice Station Zebra and The Satan Bug comes the thrilling adventure When Eight Bells Toll. Philip Calvert (Anthony Hopkins, Juggernaut, The Silence of the Lambs) is a secret service agent assigned to stop the ruthless pirating of millions of dollars of gold bullion in the Irish seas. His search takes him to small port in the Hebrides where numerous fishing boat, yachts and people have been mysteriously disappearing. A trail of deceit and subterfuge leads him to fabulously wealthy residents Sir Anthony Skouras (Jack Hawkins, Masquerade) and his beautiful wife, Charlotte (Nathalie Delon, Le Samouraï) who may hold the answers to the truth. Wonderfully directed by Etienne Périer (Zeppelin) with a rousing score by Angela Morley (Watership Down) and stunning widescreen cinematography by Arthur Ibbetson (Hopscotch). The stellar cast includes Robert Morley (Topkapi) and Ferdy Mayne (Count von Krolock of The Fearless Vampire Killers).
NOTE: This is the same transfer as our 2016 release, but encoded at a higher bit rate and on a dual-layered BD50 disc, giving the feature 30mbps or more. So, it should look better than the previous release that was on a BD25 single layered disc. We also added a brand new audio commentary, English subtitles, reversible art and a slipcase.
