Man In White Suit

( 1 )

Overview

Alec Guinness stars in the classic comedy The Man in the White Suit. The film is presented in its original 1.33:1 full-frame aspect ratio in black-and-white. This is a very crisp-looking picture that sports only the slightest amount of grain and dirt in the image. Overall Anchor Bay has done an excellent job of making sure this transfer is clean and very presentable. The soundtrack is presented in Dolby Digital 1.0 Mono in both English and French. Sadly, the soundtrack isn't quite as exciting as the video ...

Overview

Alec Guinness stars in the classic comedy The Man in the White Suit. The film is presented in its original 1.33:1 full-frame aspect ratio in black-and-white. This is a very crisp-looking picture that sports only the slightest amount of grain and dirt in the image. Overall Anchor Bay has done an excellent job of making sure this transfer is clean and very presentable. The soundtrack is presented in Dolby Digital 1.0 Mono in both English and French. Sadly, the soundtrack isn't quite as exciting as the video presentation. While fidelity and dynamic range are sorely lacking, the good news is that the mix is free and clear of most all hiss and distortion. No alternate subtitles or soundtracks are available on this disc. The only two extra features included on this edition of The Man in the White Suit are a theatrical trailer for the film and a biography on star Guinness.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide - Mark Deming
Few movies define "droll" better than this dry and subtle comedy that gently nudges laughter from its audience. In the tradition of other great Ealing comedies of the 1940s and 1950s, The Man in the White Suit sets up its comic premise with well-crafted care (the screenplay was nominated for an Academy Award), and the cast splendidly brings its genial eccentrics to life. Alec Guinness is superb as the cheerfully obsessive scientist Sidney Stratton, who despite his peculiarities seems genuinely driven to improve the world; Guinness's determination, genial self-confidence, and dash of private school arrogance make Sidney more than a standard absent-minded genius. Director Alexander Mackendrick gives the material just the right amount of buoyancy while playing the comedy with sly simplicity; if The Man in the White Suit aims for chuckles rather than belly laughs, it generates enough of them to be an engaging and intelligent entertainment from start to finish.

    Wonderful subtle British humor

    Why can't they make movies like this any more? The Man in the White Suit contains a wonderful subtle humor with a social commentary about the suppression of an invention that that would revolutionize the textile industry.
