The Four Just Men on DVD

Wednesday, 11 August 2010 05:27

This ITC crime drama series, loosely based on Edgar Wallace’s novel of 1905, assembles quartet of leads who rotate as being the star turn in successive episodes. These are Jack Hawkins (“The Cruel Sea”), Richard Conte (“The Godfather”), plus Oscar nominees Vittorio de Sica (nominated for “A Farewell to Arms” in 1958) and Dan Dailey (nominated for “When My Baby Smiles at Me” in 1949). Regular co-stars include Avengers icon Honor Blackman, as glamorous secretary Nicole, Lisa Gastoni as Giulia, June Thorburn as Vicky, and Andrew Keir (“Quatermass and the Pit”) as Jock.

The Four Just Men garnered rave reviews from critics and proved a major success. Making early TV appearances alongside our quartet of stars are the likes of Judi Dench, Frank Thornton, Alan Bates, Jane Asher, Roger Delgado and Patrick Troughton. Making its debut in 1959, and produced by Sapphire Films Ltd at Walton Studios and on location in Britain, Italy and France, it sets the style for some future ITC productions, with its cosmopolitan flavour and picture postcard settings.

The Four Just Men make their way to DVD at lastThe series premiere, “The Battle of the Bridge”, sees four men who met in battle during the Allied invasion of Italy in 1943 summoned to Foxgrove Manor. They are there to hear a message recorded by their wartime commanding officer, Colonel Bacon, shortly before his death. He appeals to them to form a quartet dedicated to fighting injustice and the abuse of power, and has bequeathed a large sum of money for that purpose.

London-based independent MP and amateur sleuth Ben Manfred (Jack Hawkins) is joined by Paris-based American journalist Tim Collier (Dan Dailey), New York Professor of Law at Columbia University Jeff Ryder (Richard Conte) and Rome-based hotelier Ricco Poccari (Vittorio De Sica). They agree to carry out the Colonel’s dying wish, and their epic missions take The Four Just Men across Europe and beyond.

This is nicely summarised in the opening narration to the episodes: "Throughout time there have been men to whom justice has been more important than life itself. From these ranks come four men prepared to fight valiantly on the side of justice, wherever the need may be. Joined together in this cause they are The Four Just Men."

The four leads take roughly a quarter of the episodes each. This meant they were able to get the 39 half hour episodes ‘in the can’ in a production schedule of just five months, that began in January 1959. There were up to seven film units working simultaneously, in studio and on location.

Executive Producer was Hannah Fisher (aka Hannah Weinstein), who had made the Richard Greene The Adventures of Robin Hood such a critical success for ITC, as well as The Adventures of Sir Lancelot, The Buccaneers and Sword of Freedom. The producers were Sidney Cole (The Adventures of Robin Hood, The Buccaneers, Sword of Freedom) and Jud Kinberg (Playhouse 90, Quincy ME).

Special features include an extensive stills gallery, and a PDF on Disc 5 of the promotional PR information given out to the media at the time that the series made its debut.

Shot on 35mm film, the clarity of the picture quality is admirable for a series of this age – everything about the show wreaks class, and the stories never outstay their welcome. The character interaction is one of its great strengths, turning some passages of dialogue that could have been mundane into something far more sparkling than it might have been in lesser hands. The casting, including that of the guest stars, is a revelation, and there are plenty of chances to see acting talent that would go on to bigger things.By the way, Star Trek fans will be intrigued by the involvement of writer Gene Coon with the pilot episode.

With a running time of 975 minutes approx and a ‘PG’ certificate, The Four Just Men is a five disc set from Network, priced £49.99 or less, and is available exclusively from the Network Online Shop.
