THE EALING STUDIOS COLLECTION VOL.1 [1949/1951/1951] [Blu-ray] A Hilarious Study of the Gentle Art of MURDER! The Men Who Broke the Bank – And Lost the Cargo! The Classic Ealing Comedy – Spotless Restored!

Ealing Studios’ output from the 1940s and the 1950s helped define what was arguably the golden age for British cinema. This Blu-ray collection brings together three much loved comedy classics, directed by Ealing stalwarts Robert Hamer, Charles Crichton and Alexander Mackendrick, and starring the great Sir Alec Guinness in some of his most memorable roles.

FILM FACT: Kind Hearts and Coronets: This is listed in Time magazine's top 100 and also in the BFI [British Film Institute] Top 100 British films. In 2011 the film was digitally restored and re-released in selected British cinemas

FILM FACT: Lavender Hill Mob: The title refers to Lavender Hill, a street in Battersea, a district of South London, in the postcode district SW11, near to Clapham Junction railway station. Audrey Hepburn makes an early film appearance in a small role as Chiquita near the start of the film. Robert Shaw also made his first film appearance, playing a police laboratory technician towards the end of the film. English actress Patricia Garwood made her first film appearance in this film at the age of nine. British 1960s children's television icon Valerie Singleton also had an uncredited part in the film.

FILM FACT: The Man in the White Suit: It followed a common Ealing Studios theme of the "common man" against the Establishment. In this instance the hero falls foul of both trade unions and the wealthy mill owners who attempt to suppress his invention. It was one of the most popular films of the year in Britain.

After the DVD set left me rather angry with its rough picture and rougher audio, this blu-ray set was absolutely fantastic. The films are, perhaps obviously, terrific and required viewing for the film literate.

Bought this out of respect for my dear departed Mum;she was never very assertive, ever, but always insisted on watching these films when they appeared on the ABC in the sixties! Because of Mum's influence Studio Canal films, grew on me, and I am only too glad to purchase the remastered collection!
