Pioneering Irish film director Thaddeus OSullivans early films are released on DVD Five early rarely-seen films by Thaddeus OSullivan, are released today on DVD by the Irish Film Institute and St Marys University, London as part of the IFIs ongoing series of archive-based DVD releases. The two-disc, digitally remastered DVD features five films that OSullivan made between 1974 and 1985 including the BAFTA nominated The Woman Who Married Clark Gable (1985) and a rarely shown film on Jack B. Yeats (1981), as well as authoritative versions of his RCA and BFI work from the 1970s. These early films launched a career which later included features December Bride, Ordinary Decent Criminal and Stella Days and television work that includes Amber and the Emmy Award-winning Into the Storm/Churchill at War. Working regularly in Ireland and England he occupies a tantalising position between his native and adopted cultures, existing as he once termed it, “in the crack between [British and Irish] cultures.” OSullivan established his career in London, so it was highly appropriate for the IFI who preserve the films in the IFI Irish Film Archive to team up with Lance Pettitt at the Centre for Irish Studies, St Marys University in London, who carried out the research underpinning this new curation.
