Never Apologize (R2) in October
Drakes Avenue Pictures have announced the UK Region 2 DVD release of Never Apologize on 27th October 2008 priced at £19.99 RRP. Never Apologize is Mike Kaplan’s documentary of Malcolm McDowell’s celebration of the life of Lindsay Anderson.
Few knew Lindsay Anderson better than McDowell, whose career Anderson launched by giving him his first starring role as the rebellious Mick Travis, in If…., winner of the 1968 Palm D’Or. Their working relationship continued through five additional film and theatre productions spanning several decades, including O Lucky Man! and Britannia Hospital.
Never Apologize combines McDowell’s personal reminiscences with his readings of pieces written by and about his friend and mentor. These are brought to life by the actor's impressions of not only the provocative Anderson, but also the notables in their circle, including Alan Bates, Bette Davis, John Ford, John Gielgud, Lillian Gish, Richard Harris, Laurence Olivier and Rachel Roberts.
Extras include a trailer and deleted scenes.
