Dir: Alexander Mackendrick - HD Digital presentation - 1 hr 25 mins - UK1951

The FeckenOdeon has thrived on British comedies of this vintage - and those from Ealing Studios in particular. Join us for a Chritmas double bill of whimsical delights…

“The Man in the White Suit” stars Alec Guinness as Sidney Stratton, a dreamily eccentric inventor who develops an artificial fibre that's indestructible and resistant to dirt. Apparently a boon to humanity, this fabric spreads alarm in a Lancashire mill town whose prosperity the invention threatens. Management and workers unite against the starry-eyed idealist Stratton.

The movie captures the tensions of 1951 Britain as it moves from socialist austerity towards Tory affluence and is as unsparing on the boardroom as on the unions. There's a flawless cast (the irresistible Joan Greenwood, the eye-rolling, shoulder-shifting Cecil Parker et al), a consistently witty score by Benjamin Frankel, and characteristically precise black-and-white cinematography by Douglas Slocombe.

PLUS : AN INSPECTOR CALLS

Dir: Guy Hamilton - HD Digital presentation - 1 hr 20 mins - UK1954

‘The way some of these cranks talk now, you’d think everybody has to look after everybody else, as if we were all mixed up like bees in a hive. Community and all that nonsense.” The lines belong to Arthur Birling, the wealthy industrialist celebrating with his family at a dinner party held by the upper class Birling family. Dinner is interrupted by a man calling himself Inspector Poole, investigating the suicide of a lower class girl Eva Smith whose death is linked to each family member. Is the Inspector what he seems? Alastair Sim’s comedic charm takes on a subtle air of genteel menace in this ever so slightly spooky mystery…. The Twilight Zone didn't just appear out of thin air, there were many progenitors! The script by Desmond Davis is based on the 1945 play by J.B.Priestley. The stage version enjoyed great success on both sides of the Atlantic…. and who doesn’t enjoy a ghost story at Christmas?
