The Man In The White Suit

Preview by Jack Foley

SIDNEY Stratton (Alec Guinness, Kind Hearts & Coronets, The Ladykillers, Star Wars), a genius inventor, develops a fabric that never gets dirty or wears out.

Thinking that his invention will be welcomed with open arms by the garment industry, he is shocked when both manufacturers and unions alike 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…

Also starring Joan Greenwood (Kind Hearts & Coronets, Whisky Galore!), Cecil Parker (The Lady Vanishes, The Ladykillers, I was Monty’s Double) and Michael Gough (Batman, The Horse’s Mouth, The Small Back Room), the film was BAFTA-nominated for Best Film and Best British Film, and Oscar-nominated for Best Screenplay.
