The Passionate Stranger (1957) centres around happily married house-wife Judith Wynter (Margaret Leighton), who keeps the fact she is a best-selling author of steamy romance novels, a closely guarded secret.
As her husband Roger (Ralph Richardson) recovers from a serious illness, the couple's new driver Carlo (Carlo Justini) discovers the manuscript of Judith's latest novel and jumps to a rather unfortunate conclusion, making life in the Wynter household very complicated indeed!
Boldly experimental in form and an entertaining riposte to the romance novel, The Passionate Stranger is released on DVD and Blu-ray 14th August from StudioCanal as part of their Vintage Classics collection.
