My favorite Ealing comedies

This list of the top 100 British films reminded me of the great comedies produced by the Ealing Studios in the later 1940s/1950s. I recommend all of them. I am posting overviews and then stuff on specific films. Alec Guinness stars in several of them.

I think the best one is Kind Hearts and Coronets (1949) which is available on Blu-ray and DVD from Kino Lorber.

The Man in the White Suit (1951). It’s on Blu-ray and DVD from Kino Lorber.

The Lavender Hill Mob (1951). It’s on Blu-ray and DVD from Kino Lorber.

The Ladykillers (1955). Its on disc from Studio Cabal/Lionsgate. The Coen Brothers remake is not as good.

Passport to Pimlico (1949). It’s on Blu-ray and DVD from Film Movement.

Whisky Galore! (1949) has also been remade. It’s on disc with The Maggie from Film Movement.

The Titfield Thunderbolt (1953). It’s on Blu-ray and DVD from Fim Movement.

The Maggie (1954)
