The Iron Maiden

A sad film, a kind of traction engine version of Genevieve, with Michael Craig as the man of the future (he's an aircraft designer) getting into trouble because of his love of the past, and finally solving his problems through the realisation that 'Britain is the place of continuity...' etc. Thematically the film makes (reactionary) sense, but cinematically it's a disaster. Scenes at Henley, Ascot and Woburn are supplemented by the Duke of Bedford in person.

Why is this film not available to buy or hire. I remember enjoying it years ago and it is more suitable for children to watch than many they are making today
