Directed by Michael Truman and starring Maggie Smith, Dave King, Robert Morley and Daniel Massey, the classic British comedy Go To Blazes is released On DVD on 30th January 2012 from StudioCanal.

For anyone who loves British comedy, Go To Blazes features an all-star cast that includes Robert Morley (The African Queen, Topkapi), Daniel Massey (In Which We Serve, The Entertainer), Dennis Price (Kind Hearts and Coronets, The Rebel) and Coral Browne(Auntie Mame, Theatre of Blood).

Go To Blazes also features classic British character actors Norman Rossington (The Wrong Box, The Charge of the Light Brigade), Finlay Currie (Around The World in Eighty Days, Ben Hur) and Miles Malleson (The Importance of Being Earnest, The Man In The White Suit). And last but not least, Go To Blazes stars Dame Maggie Smith (The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie), in what was only her second role, playing the exotic femme fatale Chantal.

Produced in 1962 which was a turning point for British film, the year that the post-war era ended and the Sixties really began, Go To Blazes is a film that is very much in the Ealing tradition: charming, elegant and playful.

Bernard (Dave King), Harry (Daniel Massey) and Alfie (Norman Rossington) are three amiable but foolhardy crooks that smash and grab tactics rarely come off. On their way for another stint behind bars they see the traffic diverge for an on call fire engine and hatch a new plan. Upon their release they set out to acquire a fire engine to use as the perfect getaway vehicle on a jewelry robbery. But when they are mistaken for real firemen their plan slowly beings to unravel. When Harry gets scared by the appearance of the police, he accidentally runs into a dress salons changing room. He meets the beautiful Chantal (Maggie Smith) who might just hold the key to finally pulling off a successful heist.

To celebrate its 50th Anniversary, the film will screen at the British Film Institute in the London Comedy Film Festival on January 29th, the day before its first ever release on DVD!
