Coming to DVD: British Films from VCI

I love a good submarine movie, and next Tuesday, May 17th, VCI is releasing not one but two sub films starring Sir John Mills.

WE DIVE AT DAWN (1943) is a WWII drama starring Sir John Mills and Eric Portman.

ABOVE US THE WAVES (1955) is another WWII submarine tale starring Mills, although this one was released years later.

VCI will be releasing another Mills WWII film on DVD Tuesday, THE WAY TO THE STARS (1945), known in the U.S. as JOHNNY IN THE CLOUDS.

THE WAY TO THE STARS costars Michael Redgrave, Rosamund John, and Trevor Howard, with Jean Simmons in a small role.

As mentioned here previously, this summer VCI will release the most entertaining mermaid comedy MIRANDA (1948), starring Glynis Johns.

The DVD cover art for MIRANDA has now been posted on the VCI website.

MIRANDA will be released on July 5th.

Update: Glenn Erickson has reviewed the war films listed above at DVD Savant.
