Not content with only one Studiocanal Vintage Classics competition running on Blueprint: Review at the moment, the label have offered us another pair of films to give away!

It’s in celebration of the fact that two newly restored classic films are heading to the Vintage Classics collection; THE FLYING SCOT and THE GALLOPING MAJOR which Studiocanal will release on DVD, Blu-Ray and Digital on August 8.

We have 2 copies of both to give away on Blu-ray to 2 lucky readers.

To enter, read the details at the bottom of the page, but first here’s more about the two films.

THE FLYING SCOT

STUDIOCANAL is delighted to announce the release of the newly-restored crime thriller, THE FLYING SCOT. This rarely seen classic will be available to own on Blu-Ray and Digital for the very first time from August 8. A DVD version will be released on the same day.

This compact, claustrophobic British B-movie gem directed by Compton Bennett (The Seventh Veil, Man-Eater) and written by Norman Hudis (Carry on Nurse, The Duke Wore Jeans) and Ralph Smart (Always a Bride, Bush Christmas), features three very different career criminals, who join forces for a daring robbery attempt aboard the famous London-Glasgow passenger train The Flying Scotsman. Lee Patterson (Airplane 2, Checkpoint) is the man with the audacious plan and Kay Callard (White Hunter, The Electric Monster) his glamorous accomplice in this taut heist thriller with echoes of film noir, which also stars Alan Gifford (2001: A Space Odyssey, The Iron Petticoat) and Margaret Withers (Sin of Esther Waters, If Theis be Sin).

Featuring brand-new bonus material and looking better than ever, the FLYING SCOT is a welcome addition to the ever-expanding Vintage Classics collection.

Matthews (Laughter in Paradise, Whisky Galore!) and Charles Victor (The Ringer, Major Barbara).
