To mark the release of the Trevor Howard Box Set on 23rd September. We’ve been given three copies to give away. The box set contains numerous classic movies including Brief Encounter, The Third Man (Special Edition), Odette, Outcast of the Islands and Heart of the Matter.
The inimitable, gravelly voiced Trevor Howard was one of Britain’s finest character actors, and an important figure in post-war British cinema. With a career spanning over 40 years, on both stage and screen, Howard starred in some of the finest films in cinematic history. A celebrated actor within the industry he was Oscar, Bafta, Golden Globe and Emmy nominated many times for his work, winning twice.
This collection brings together some of his finest work, with five of the very best films from his illustrious career. The much loved classic BRIEF ENCOUNTER, directed by Noël Coward, was the film that launched his career, achieving huge success at the box office and catapulting Howard to fame. Carol Reed’s masterpiece, THE THIRD MAN, often cited as the greatest British film ever made, featured Howard’s slightly dry Major Calloway as the perfect foil to Orson Welles’ shadowy Harry Lime. In ODETTE we see Howard in the role of Peter Churchill, a British agent who worked closely with female war spy Odette and married her after the war and in OUTCAST OF THE ISLANDS, another collaboration with Carol Reed, Howard stars as Peter Willems: a man on the run from a scandal in Makassar. And finally, Howard was nominated for a BAFTA for Best Actor for one of his finest performances in HEART OF THE MATTER (based on the Graham Greene novel) – as Scobie, a British intelligence officer based in Sierra Leone.
The Trevor Howard collection is a hugely impressive catalogue of work from a quintessentially British actor who has captured the hearts of many during his outstanding career and still does today. This collection is a must-have for any fan of Trevor Howard and fans of British Cinema.
