StudioCanal have officially announced that they will release on Blu-ray director Joseph Losey's The Servant (1963) starring Dirk Bogarde, Sarah Miles, James Fox, and Wendy Craig. Recently restored and screened at the 2013 BFI London Lesbian & Gay Film Festival, The Servant will be available for purchase online and in shops across the United Kingdom on March 22.
James Fox plays a wealthy American who has escaped from his homeland in the wake of Communist paranoia. He returns to England from a holiday in Europe, buys a handsome Georgian townhouse and employs Dirk Bogarde as a house-keeper. However, Bogarde becomes steadily more pervasive and manages to engineer a role-reversal which results in him achieving control of his master.
