Starring Freda Jackson (Clash of The Titans, West 11), Rene Ray (The Galloping Major, The Good Die Young), Lois Maxwell (Goldfinger, Lolita) and Laurence Harvey (The Silent Enemy, The Manchurian Candidate) and directed by Gordon Parry (Innocents in Paris, Third Time Lucky), Women Of Twilight, part of the Romulus Film Catalogue, is a gritty, ground-breaking drama that was the first British film to receive the recently introduced X certificate.

An adaptation of the 1951 play by Sylvia Rayman that enjoyed an extended run in the West End, this newly restored version of Women Of Twilight comes complete with a host of new special features and is a welcome addition to the ever-expanding Vintage Classics collection.

Unmarried nightclub singer Vivanne Bruce (Rene Ray) finds herself alone and pregnant when her lover, Jerry Nolan (Laurence Harvey), is arrested for murder. Desperate for a place to live, she finds a room in a boarding-house run by "Nellie" Alistair (Freda Jackson). An outwardly upstanding woman who provides room-and-board for unmarried mothers Nellie is, in fact, ruthless with an ulterior motive... selling children for adoption.

Initially resentful of having to share a room with Chris Ralston (Lois Maxwell) and her young son, the women soon become friends when Chris intervenes on Vivanne's behalf in an argument with another boarder. Whilst caring for Chris' child when he falls ill, Vivienne turns to Nellie for help but is turned away.

Events take a tragic turn and Vivanne confronts Nellie, determined to put a stop to the exploitation and cruelty in the house.

Women Of Twilight is released on DVD and Blu-ray 27th March 2023 from StudioCanal as part of their Vintage Classics collection.
