HELL DRIVERS AND EARL AT BFI
Each year the BFI plays host to the London film festival, and this year there is a special treat for fans of the work of Patrick McGoohan.
'Hell Drivers', the classic film starring McGoohan alongside Sean Connery, Sid James, Stanley Baker, and Herbert Lom, is due for Blu-ray release from Network this year, and to coincide with the fantastic restoration work, a special 4k edition of the movie will be screened on Tuesday 11th October at the NFT.

Also forming part of the festival is a special Q&A with Earl Cameron (who played the supervisor in the episode 'Schizoid Man') followed by the classic 50s film 'Pool of London', on Sunday 23rd October. Click HERE for details.
