4.0 out of 5 stars It Never Rains, But It Pours., 24 Oct 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: It Always Rains On Sunday [DVD] (DVD)
The Ealing Studios became a fine independant studio under the leadership of Producer Michael Balcon. This film - It Always Rains On Sunday - is a quirky post war drama, enhanced by a superb performance by Googie Withers. Set in London's working class East End, Rose Sandigate (Withers) has no idea when she awakes on Sunday morning that her run of the mill life is about to change. Fifteen years earlier, her fiance Tommy Swan (John McCallum) was jailed in Dartmouth Prison for thieving, and now the place is abuzz because he has escaped and is on the run.
Jack Warner plays DS Fothergill, and he searches the East End for Swan's old cohort's,figuring he will return there and hide out. He does, and takes shelter out in the shed behind the Sandigate home. The cat and mouse drama heats up when Rose decides to help her ex lover to escape,and the chase sequence at the films end was very well done with some great camera work and lighting.
Apart from Withers, Jack Warner turns in another fine and seemingly effortless performance.Edward Chapman gives good support as Rose's husband,George, as do both McCallum, and Sydney Tafler.
The film was directed by Robert Hamer,(who also directed Kind Hearts and Coronets for Ealing) and the end result is a fine drama with a few twists and turns along the way. A very entertaining film indeed.
