If you're already a fan of one of Britain's most revered treasures of the film industry and whose legacy seems as strong as ever, you will already know of Lavender Hill Mob and Kind Hearts and Coronets and such.

Champagne Charlie and it Always Rains on Sunday were really popular films of their days and the latter, a foray into (then) contemporary gritty social drama. Champagne Charlie did what Hollywood did so well, the Variety Hall biopic but with East End sparkle, full of wit and larger than life characters.
Finally, The Maggie. An underrated, gentle little comedy, the sort of which Ealing are more associated with. The storyline packs quite a gentle punch on American capitalism as a tycoon gets to believe that, after cutting corners and underestimating the crew of the 'Maggie', he can buy out his mistake with dollars alone.
This is an attractively (but modest, to keep the cost down) presented little four disc set that has no duds whatsoever and many pleasures within.
