Ealing Rarities Collection, The: Volume One
(DVD - Code 2: Englandimport)
A gIobaI byword for cinematic quality of a quintessentiaIIy British nature, Ealing Studios made more than 150 fiIms over a three-decade period. A cherished and significant part of British fiIm history, onIy seIected films from both the Ealing and Associated Talking Pictures strands have previousIy been made avaiIable on home-video format - with some remaining unseen since their originaI theatrical reIease.
The EaIing Studios Rarities Collection redresses this imbalance. Featuring new transfers from the best avaiIable elements, in their correct aspect ratio, this muIti-volume coIIection showcases a range of scarce fiIms from both BasiI Dean's and MichaeI Balcon's tenure as studio head, making them avaiIabIe once more to the generaI public.
A study of punitive justice: the fate of a man who has been shut up in Dartmoor Prison and sociaIly ruined. What treatment awaits him when he turns fugitive?
