The Man in the White Suit (1951)

The recently re-released 1951 film, The Man In the White Suit, was restored and re-mastered at Pinewood's Archive, Preservation and Restoration Facility.
 
Directed by Alexander Mackendrick, and starring Alec Guinness, Joan Greenwood, and Cecil Parker; the film sees the character Sidney (Guinness) develop a pure white material that can’t be dirtied or ruined. But it seems Sidney’s invention is too brilliant; if a material is marketed as everlasting, textile mills would go out of business. Suddenly, poor, luckless Sidney has both management and labor banding together to combat his new invention.
 
The restored print of The Man in the White Suit was re-released in UK cinemas last month to commemorate the 100th anniversary of director Alexander Mackendrick's birth.
 
The Man in the White Suit was released on DVD/Blu-ray from StudioCanal on 19 November.
