The Ealing Studios Rarities Collection - Volume 6

A global byword for cinematic quality of a quintessentially British nature, Ealing Studios made more than 150 films over a three decade period. A cherished and significant part of British film history, only selected films from both the Ealing and Associated Talking Pictures strands have previously been made available on home video format - with some remaining unseen since their original theatrical release.

The Ealing Rarities Collection redresses this imbalance - featuring new transfers from the best available elements, in their correct aspect ratio, this multi-volume collection showcases a range of scarce films from both Basil Dean's and Michael Balcon's tenure as studio head, making them available once more to the general public.

The Fortunate Fool (1933)
A wealthy author, looking for material, 'adopts' an incorrigible thief he finds in the streets, together with an attractive typist who is down on her luck.

Calling The Tune (1936)

I Believe In You (1952)

The Girl In The Taxi (1937)
The head of a Parisian purity league is found out to be anything but when his organisation mistakenly sends an award to the wrong person.
