Studiocanal have announced a new DVD and Blu-ray release for The Holly & The Ivy for release on 2nd December.

Beautifully restored and featuring brand new extra features, The Holly & The Ivy stars British acting royalty Ralph Richardson, Celia Johnson, Margaret Leighton, Denholm Elliot and John Gregson, and was adapted for the screen by Anatole de Grunwald (Queen of Spades, The Winslow Boy) from the play by Wynyard Browne and directed by George More O’Ferrall (The Heart of the Matter and the first ever producer of drama at the BBC). Set amid the austere atmosphere of post war Britain, this touching story of a family gathering together at Christmas and facing up to their demons is one of the very best classic British Christmas movies.
