A tense thriller shot on location in Sydney, The Siege of Pinchgut would become the legendary Ealing Studios' final film. Grittily directed by Harry Watt and starring Aldo Ray in a quintessential "tough guy" role, it is presented here as a remaster from original film elements in its original theatrical aspect ratio.


Criminal Matt Kirk makes a daring escape on his way to prison with the help of his gang. When their boat's propeller becomes fouled they drift ashore on the tiny island of Pinchgut and take the island's caretaker and his family hostage. With their cover soon blown, the island is surrounded by armed police and a state of siege ensues.
