On June 22, Network DVD will release CAMPBELL'S KINGDOM, directed by Ralph Thomas in 1957.
Campbell’s Kingdom is the story of a young Englishman, Bruce Campbell, who has been given six months to live, and who travels to the Canadian Rockies to take over an inheritance of land from his grandfather. The old man had been alone in his conviction that there is oil in his ‘Kingdom’, and Bruce determines to devote his last remaining months to proving his grandfather right. He meets with determined and unscrupulous opposition from almost everyone in the area, and the leader of a construction gang, Owen Morgan, is prepared to attempt anything to stop the oil-drilling venture… including murder.
Dirk Bogarde (The Servant) stars as the driven young man who refuses to allow a family dream to die with him in this powerful adaptation of Hammond Innes’ best-selling novel. Campbell’s Kingdom features a screenplay by BAFTA winner Robin Estridge and a strong supporting cast, including Stanley Baker (Hell Drivers), Barbara Murray (The Power Game) and Michael Craig (Sea of Sand) – and one of the most thrilling and spectacular climaxes ever seen on the screen.
