New Yvonne Romain DVD release

I just spotted a blog post from MySpace's Yvonne Romain Fans highlighting a UK Region 2 DVD release of Yvonne Romain's The Frightened City featuring a young Sean Connery. The blog post reads:

Yep, it seems the fine folk at Optimum Releasing have seen fit to provide us with a Region 2 release of Yvonne's 1961 gangster pic, 'The Frightened City', at last!!

Here's a link to their website's promotion:

For those who haven't seen it, it's a tale of corruption amid a setting of smoky London nightclubs.

Star of the show is boxer Sean Connery, who's pressured into becoming an enforcer in crooked accountant Herbert Lom's new crime syndicate. Yvonne plays the love interest, and looks great doing it, as gangster's moll and nightclub singer Anya.

'The Frightened City' is a decent, if not classic, Brit gangster pic, and is well worth a watch, especially at the reduced price available on Amazon, and similar sites

I've never seen this one, but as a Bond fan I'm always interested in anything featuring Connery.
