Alec Guinness quietly invents a fabric that is indestructible and never gets dirty. You’d thinkpeople would be happy. Not if they have anything to do with the fabric industry, they’re not. Bigindustry and big labour all get it in the neck in this hilarious film. The cast is top-notch(Guinness, Joan Greenwood, Ernest Thesiger, Michael Gough) and clearly having a great time.Not to be missed.
As with the other films in this series, the sound is t…e original mono, and there really is nocause for complaint. The dialogue comes through with crystalline clarity, and the sound is verywarm.
Great-looking print. There is a tiny bit of grain in the early goings, but thereafter the look isjust about perfect for a film that is over fifty years old. Very nice black-and-white, very sharppicture. The ratio is the original 1.33:1.
The same as the other films in the collection: the Alec Guinness bio, excellent liner notes,and a trailer. The menu has animated transitions and introduction, and otherwise is scored.
Mad-cap adventures, bull’s eye social satire, another wonderful characterization from AlecGuinness, and the too-die-for sexiness of Joan Greenwood’s voice. What are you waitingfor?
