Ealing studios’ output from the 1940s and 1950s helped define what was arguably the golden age for British cinema. THE CAPTIVE HEART, released in 1946, comes from this legendary studio. Starring a host of Ealing favourites, including Michael Redgrave, Basil Radford and Jack Warner, THE CAPTIVE HEART is the story of a group of British prisoners of War, captured after Dunkirk in 1940. Amongst them is a man known as Captain Geoffrey Mitchell – who has assumed the identity of a dead man after escaping from the Marlag and Milag North concentration camp. With exposure seeming inevitable, the man seeks desperately to escape the camp and therefore the fate which awaits him.
