Gone To Earth

Gone To Earth

Poet and novelist Mary Webb is perhaps Shropshire’s most famous daughter, using the beautiful countryside she grew up in as the backdrop for the majority of her written work.
The most notable screen adaptation of her writing is Gone To Earth, a 1950 feature from acclaimed British directors Michael Powell and Emeric Pressburger, a film that deserves to be placed alongside their better known works for its gorgeous imagery and refusal to succumb to overblown melodrama.

Jennifer Jones plays the story’s heroine Hazel Woodus, a woman choosing between two potential paramours – dashing squire Jack Reddin or straight-laced parson Edward Marston. When she marries the latter, it becomes clear that her passion for Jack is still burning, setting the scene for emotional turmoil amidst the English countryside.
