    In celebration of the 100th Anniversary of the birth of one of Ealing's greatest directors: Alexander Mackendrick, STUDIOCANAL are releasing the restored version of the DVD and the first ever blu-ray of The Man In The White Suit Starring Alec Guinness, Joan Greenwood, Cecil Parker

    Ealing Studios' output from the 1940s and 1950s helped define what was arguably the golden age for British cinema. It fostered great directors such as Alexander Mackendrick and Robert Hamer, while giving stars such as Alec Guinness and Peter Sellers the chance to shine.

    Sidney Stratton (Alec Guinness), a humble inventor, develops a fabric which never gets dirty or wears out. This would seem to be a boon for mankind, but the established garment manufacturers don't see it that way; they try to suppress it. Nevertheless, Sidney is determined to put his invention on the market, forcing the clothing factory bigwigs to resort to more desperate measures.
