The Lavender Hill Mob, The Man in the White Suit, Whiskey Galore, The Lady Killers and more... Exploring the cinematic works produced by British film studio Ealing, renown for their comedies of the immediate post-war era. Explore the aspects of these films which allowed then to be enjoyed by so many whilst also looking deeper into their persistent undercurrent of darker social and political issues. With a focus on some classic comedies and some lesser known ventures into WW2 propaganda and even horror, just what darker issues were Ealing juggling with, how did they find a balance and why are we still talking about their films in the 21st Century?
