The Black Panther, DVD DVD


Ian Merrick directs this gritty crime thriller based on real events in 1970s England.

Donald Sumpter stars as Donald Nielson, an obsessive ex-army man who uses his military skills to rob a string of local post offices after his business flounders.

An accidental killing during one of these raids leads Nielson to progress to murder, and he kills several postmasters before plotting his most infamous crime: the kidnapping of Lesley Whittle (Debbie Farrington), the 17-year-old daughter of a local wealthy businessman.
