Episode 602: The Man in the White Suit (1951)

Special Guest: Robert Sellers
Guest Co-Hosts: Mark Begley, A.J. Black

We’re looking at the 1951 film from Alexander Mackendrick, The Man in the White Suit. The film stars Alec Guiness as Sidney Stratton, an inventor who comes up with a fabric that will never wear out and never get dirty. He soon comes to the attention of both the bosses at the textile mills as well as the workers, and quickly learns that his good intentions are not appreciated in the least, with the possible exception of Daphne Birnley, his boss’s daughter.

A.J. Black and Mark Begley join Mike to discuss the film while Robert Sellers speaks about his book, The Secret Life of Ealing Studios: Britain's Favourite Film Studio.
