Kino Lorber has released the 1946 World War II drama The Captive Heart, starring Michael Redgrave (Secret Beyond the Door) and Rachel Kempson (The Virgin Soldiers).

After the evacuation at Dunkirk, June 1940, some thousands of British prisoners are sent to German P.O.W. camps. One such group includes Capt. Geoffrey Mitchell (Redgrave), a concentration-camp escapee who assumed the identity of a dead British officer. To avoid exposure, “Mitchell” must correspond with the dead man’s estranged wife Celia (Kempson). But eventual exposure seems certain, and the men must find a way to get him out. If he reaches England, though, what will his reception be?

Directed by Basil Dearden (Khartoum), The Captive Heart feature black-and-white cinematography by the great Douglas Slocombe (The Man in the White Suit).
