New Digital Restoration!
United Kingdom | 1951 | Alexander Mackendrick
Alec Guinness stars in one of the great Ealing comedies—a sci-fi satire about a British chemist who invents a space age white fabric that repels dirt and never wears out. Despite this breakthrough, he soon runs afoul of both capitalists and labor unions. From the director of The Ladykillers and Sweet Smell of Success. Cleveland revival premiere. DCP. 85 min.
