This collection brings together 4 brilliant Ealing Studios productions, at least three of which are very well known - 'The Titfield Thunderbolt', 'The Lavender Hill Mob' and 'Hue & Cry'. The inimitable Stanley Holloway and Alec Guiness give superb performances and laughs abound in all three. 'Dead of Night' is not as well known perhaps and is a psychological thriller comprising of 5 chilling ghost stories. There are outstanding performances from Michael Redgrave and Mervyn Johns in this last film. I thoroughly recommend this collection.

A four film classic from Ealing studios.The movies on offer here are-"The Titfield Thunderbolt" a gem of a film in colour about one villages attempt to keep there train line running, dispite opposition from the local bus company.Next "The Lavender Hill Mob", Alex Guiness in the lead as a timid bank clerk who masterminds a robbery of his own bank.Next "Hue and Cry" is a sort of boys own caper of foiling a robbery. A assortment of children read a comic little do they know crooks are using the stories to pass information around.Good use of war torn London as a back drop here.Watch for a young Harry Fowler and Jack Warner of Dock Green fame.Lastly must be the horror of all horrors the chilling a "Dead of Night" , a selection of ghost stories told by guests at a country house, won't give away too much here,but would give modern horror movies a run for their money.Now I here you say why only 3 stars? The last film in question "Dead of night" WAS NOT the 1945 ealing studio classic but something called "Dylon Dog (dead of night)" a 2011 colour film.Someone has made a HUGH balls up and ruined my evenings viewing.I read the reviews and so it's looks like I am the only one to fall fowl of this error.

Do you know how, when you are walking home from the pub with a bag of chips and you think they are all gone and just as you are about to bin the wrapper you come across a little cache of chips in a fold that you never knew where there? This collection was like that for me.
I have enjoyed B&W British post war movies for years and thought I had seen them all, but found two gems here that I didn't know about.
I had seen and enjoyed several times the Titfield Thunderbolt and The Lavender Hill Mob but it was the brilliant Hue and Cry and especially Dead of Night an early (possibly the first ever) portmanteau movie that really made this such a wonderful collection for me.
Highly recommended.

This is the second of four volumes which reproduce the films made at the Ealing Studios. They are classics of their genre, and vary between comedy and thriller. They are well-produced and of great interest to anyone who enjoys films which have a plot, good dialogue which is not drowned out by background music, and good acting. Highly recommended.

The fourth film, Dead of Night is not the Ealing film advertised on the cover, it is another modern film of the same name and is absolute rubbish. Unfortunately I didn't watch this until it was too late to return it but I was very disappointed. Very poor show, especially as I see others have also said this in their review. Wish I had seen it at the time. This should be WITHDRAWN from sale.

dead of night was not the Ealing version but "Dylan dog - dead of night" - which I already had !!!! Haven't checked the rest yet - dread what the others are !!!! Will feed back.
The others seamed ok.
I have ordered a replacement for the dead of night disc - not from the Ealing collection - will drop it in the presentation box once received.

Films are fine with one exception - "Dead of night" isn't actually "Dead of night", it's some crap "Dylan Dog: Dead of night", which is a huge letdown... I don't know how they did it, but I guess 3 out of 4 right is a bless
