Robert Morley and Maurice Evans star as the celebrated Gilbert and Sullivan in this sumptuous costume drama from British film legends Frank Launder and Sidney Gilliat. Co-starring Peter Finch and Eileen Herlie as the D'Oyly Cartes, The Story of Gilbert and Sullivan features spectacular imagery from BAFTA-winning cinematographer Christopher Challis, lavish design by Oscar-winners Hein Heckroth and Vincent Korda and a memorable soundtrack courtesy of the London Symphony Orchestra, conducted by Sir Malcolm Sargent. It is featured here as a remaster from original film elements in its original theatrical aspect ratio.

Amid accusations of talent-wasting, composer Arthur Sullivan joins forces with dramatist W.S. Gilbert and impresario Richard D'Oyly Carte in a partnership to create what ultimately became some of the most innovative and successful music ever created.
