Film information

Story: Boxset of four classic films from the 1960s. 'No Love for Johnnie' (1961) stars Peter Finch as an MP whose thirst for greater power leads him to political intrigue. Johnnie Byrne (Finch) aspires to the big time and his hopes are raised when his party triumphs in a general election. As Johnnie is overlooked for a role on the front benches his personal life also hangs in the balance as his wife (Rosalie Crutchley) decides to leave him. When Johnny is approached by a couple of fellow backbenchers for help in a scheme that may destabilise the government but advance their careers, Johnny is faced with a difficult decision. 'The Beauty Jungle' (1964) is a British comedy drama in which a young woman finds a new career as a beauty queen. Attractive typist Shirley Freeman (Janette Scott) is encouraged by newspaper journalist Don Mackenzie (Ian Hendry) to enter a beauty pageant while on holiday. After winning she decides to quit her job and become a full time contestant, proving to be very successful. However, her success won't last forever... 'The High Bright Sun' (1964) is set in Cyprus in 1957 against the backdrop of Cyprus's determined struggle for independence from British rule. Dirk Bogarde stars as a British Intelligence Officer whose sense of duty imperils the life of the woman he loves. 'Flame in the Streets' (1961) is a hard-hitting melodrama about racial tensions in early 1960s England starring John Mills and Sylvia Sims. Jacko Palmer (Mills) is a union man who has to confront the prejudices of his members when a black foreman (Earl Cameron) is appointed and the members threaten to strike. When he discovers that his daughter (Sims) wants to marry Jamaican schoolteacher Peter Lincoln (Johnny Sekka) however, Jacko must confront his own prejudices and become a bigger man.
