Eric Portman (A Canterbury Tale) plays an artist obsessed with the past. He surrounds himself with Renaissance artwork, infatuated with the notion that he and his lover (Edana Romney) are reincarnations of the lovers in a centuries-old painting. Portman’s delusions have deadly consequences.

One of the most unusual British films of the 1940s, Corridor of Mirrors (1948) incorporates aspects of gothic horror, film noir, melodrama, fantasy, romance and thrillers. Newly restored for this release, this first feature from director Terence Young (Dr. No), was heavily influenced by Jean Cocteau’s Beauty and the Beast and David Lean’s Brief Encounter, and includes the feature film debut of Christopher Lee (The House That Dripped Blood).

The disc contains a trailer as a special feature.
