Outliers: Suspected Person (Lawrence Huntington, 1942)

Venue: Birkbeck 43 Gordon Square


In statistics, an 'outlier' is a point that is distant from other observations. It seems an apt way of considering the vast landscape of neglected or totally unknown films that make up British cinema, dominated by the names and reputations of a very limited group of valued directors and studio 'brands'. However, video releases have started to open up some of the unknown regions, revealing unexpected treasures, as in this selection of recent discoveries.

Suspected Person (Lawrence Huntington, 1942) Patricia Roc, David Farrar

American gangsters in wartime London in a low-budget thriller by the underrated Huntington.

London Screen Study Collection free screenings, in the Birkbeck Cinema, all at 14.00.
