Gone to Earth

A.k.a. 'The Wild Heart.' Jennifer Jones plays a beautiful young English Gypsy girl who loves animals and in particular her pet fox. She is hotly desired by David Farrar, a fox-hunting squire who vies for her affection and pursues her even after her marriage to the local pastor. After 50 years Powell and Pressburger's film has been fully restored to it's former glory. Dissatisfied with the original film, producer David O Selznick hired director Rouben Mamoulian to direct new scenes while cutting others. After he had finished, 'The Wild Heart' ran for only 82 minutes compared to the 110 minute 'Gone to Earth', with all but 35 minutes of Powell and Pressburger's original remaining. Seen by most critics as a far superior film, 'Gone to Earth' is now recognised as one of Powell and Pressburger's most beautiful films.
