The Pride Of The Force DVD Cover

This lively comedy of 1933 provided an early film role for Leslie Fuller, and sees the wildly popular, rubber-faced actor and entertainer – once touted as Elstree's own Clark Gable – playing identical twins with very different ambitions: one is a policeman who longs to join a circus, the other a farm hand who wants to be a policeman!

Pride of the Force also marked the first and only screen pairing of Fuller and his future wife Nan Bates, with the couple meeting on-set for the first time. This long-unseen feature is presented here in a brand-new transfer from the original film elements, in its as-exhibited theatrical aspect ratio. There are two very small mute sections in all existing prints of this film – there is no need to adjust your set.
