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.
