A global byword for cinematic quality of a quintessential^ British nature, Ealing Studios made more than 150 films over a three-decade period. A cherished and significant part of British film history, only selected films from both the Ealing and Associated Talking Pictures strands have previously been made available on home-video format - with some remaining unseen since their original theatrical release. 'The Ealing Studios Rarities Collection' redresses this imbalance. Featuring new transfers from the best available elements, in their correct aspect ratio, this multi-volume collection showcases a range of scarce films from both Basil Dean's and Michael Balcon's tenure as studio head, making them available once more to the general public.
The Feminine Touch (1956) Under the watchful eye of Matron, five young women begin their nursing careers in the National Health Service.
Young Man's Fancy (1939) Those were the days! When a music hall was a hall of music, whose saccharine and plaintive numbers made everyone weep - from duke to dustman!
There Ain't No Justice (1939) Jimmy Hanley stars as a young boxer whose family faces financial difficulty. A big-time promoter promises fame and fortune - but is he all he claims to be?
The Silent Passenger (1935) In his first film sighting, Lord Peter Wimsey, Dorothy L. Sayers' famous amateur sleuth, sets out to prove the innocence of an acquaintance accused of murder.
