The Masters of Cinema Series is proud to present a new dual-format special edition for the first time on DVD and Blu-ray in the UK of Billy Wilder's penultimate film, Fedora.

For his penultimate film, Billy Wilder created this elegiac, potent and richly entertaining mystery. Reuniting with one of his greatest actors William Holden, and co-written with his longtime collaborator IAL Diamond, this is an exquisitely crafted tale of romance and intrigue.

Washed-up producer Barry ‘Dutch’ Detweiler (William Holden) attempts to lure the iconic but reclusive actress Fedora (Marthe Keller) out of retirement in a bid to revive both their careers. But her privacy is hard won, and with good reason, and opening up the secrets surrounding her could spell disaster.

Continuing the exploration of themes first examined in Sunset Boulevard, now decades later through the prism of New Hollywood, Fedora is a great filmmaker’s testament, and a masterful, stirring exploration of cinema’s power.

Eureka's Masters of Cinema Series present a new dual-format special edition for the first time on DVD and Blu-ray in the UK, featuring English subtitles, deleted scenes, a restoration comparison and a collector's booklet featuring essays on the film and archival images.
