Overview

Alec Guinness Collection

This boxed set contains five of Alec Guinness' finest films, all produced by the venerable Ealing Studios. The films in this collection are Kind Heart and Coronets, The Lavender Hill Mob, The Man in the White Suit, The Ladykillers, and The Captain's Paradise. The films are presented in transfers that preserve their original theatrical aspect ratios. The English soundtracks are fine, but occasionally reveal limitations in the source recordings. Supplemental materials include trailers, and a biography of Guinness. Collectors should be advised that this collection marks the first time The Captain's Paradise has been made available on DVD.
