(Joseph Losey, 1962)
Release date: 28 September 2020
Limited Edition Blu-ray (World Blu-ray premiere)
Jeanne Moreau (Jules et Jim) and Stanley Baker (Yesterday’s Enemy) star as two lovers caught in a deadly affair in Joseph Losey’s 1962 adaptation of the James Hadley Chase novel.
A highly personal project for Losey, Eve was blighted by producer interference, and was heavily cut for its general release under the title Eva.
Powerhouse Films is delighted to present the longest known version of the film for the very first time on home video in this definitive, world premiere Blu-ray edition.
