More Info

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.

Films include:


A study of punitive justice: the fate of a man who has been shut up in Dartmoor Prison and socially ruined. What treatment awaits him when he turns fugitive?

Black and White / 1.19:1 / Mono / English

West of Zanzibar (1954)

Soil erosion forces an African tribe to seek new pastures. Will they choose the hills that offer fertile soil and peaceful living - or the many temptations of the city?

Colour / 1.33:1 / Mono / English

Penny Paradise (1940)

Liverpool tugboat captain Joe spends a weekly sixpence on the pools. When his first mate forgets to post the coupon as a winning line is drawn, comic chaos is the result!

Black and White / 1.33:1 / Mono / English

Cheer Up! (1936)

Countless comic situations and spectacular dance routines enliven a tale of two struggling composers trying to gain backing for their musical comedy.

Black and White / 1.33:1 / Mono / English
