"Oscar Wilde" & "The Trials of Oscar Wilde" (1960) Morley & Finch 2-DVD set
This 2-DVD set features 2 theatrical films often confused with one another, having been released in Britain in the same year (1960) and with essentially the same subject matter: the notorious trials for sodomy of one of the world's greatest wits, playwrights and authors, Mr. Oscar Wilde, resulting from charges levied against him by the Marquis of Queensbury. I created these DVDs from VHS transfers I did myself and the results are quite good. The role of the famous man is played brilliantly by Robert Morley in "Oscar Wilde", filmed in black and white, and by Peter Finch (Golden Globe winner for his portrayal) in "The Trials of Oscar Wilde. Though the 2 films revolve around basically the same subject matter, the performances are as different as black and white, and both films treat what in 1960 was extremely difficult subject matter for motion pictures with great understanding, maturity, sympathy and sensitivity. There is heavy reliance in both films on the transcripts of the actual trials, but the portrayals of the events leading up to them are quite different. I'm selling this as a set because they should be seen together, not only for comparison's sake, but also for the magnificent acting in each. "Trials" features a supporting cast with whom American audiences will be more familiar (James Mason, John Neville, to name a few), whereas the Morley film features actors more known in Britain than here.

I have also listed these two DVDs as single entities here for your consideration due to popular request, so you also have the option of purchasing either one of these wonderful films on its own for $10.00 plus the same shipping cost of $5.00, please see the new listings.

PLEASE NOTE: Because I burn these DVDs on an as-ordered basis, you may experience a shipping delay of a day or possibly two, but I try to avoid this if time permits!

International (outside U.S.)orders are always welcome, and I used to send these Priority Mail for an additional fee, however as postal rates at my end have skyrocketed of late making that option unaffordable I can only offer First Class "small packet" service, which frankly has its risks, the biggest of which is the lack of tracking available, so PLEASE BE SURE YOUR MAILING ADDRESS IS COMPLETE AND ACCURATE PRIOR TO ORDERING in order to minimize the chance of non-delivery as these items are not returned to me if they cannot be delivered for any reason.

I accept personal or cashiers checks and money orders from U.S. buyers and PayPal from everyone in the whole wide world.

Thanks for looking and please feel free to message me with any questions.
