A global byword for cinematic quality of a quintessentially British nature, Ealing Studios made more than 150 films over a three decade period. A cherished and significant part of British film history, only selected films from both the Ealing and Associated Talking Pictures strands have previously been made available on home video format - with some remaining unseen since their original theatrical release. The Ealing Rarities Collection redresses this imbalance - featuring new transfers from the best available elements, in their correct aspect ratio, this multi-volume collection showcases a range of scarce films from both Basil Dean's and Michael Balcon's tenure as studio head, making them available once more to the general public. THE SECRET OF THE LOCH (1934) An elderly professor seeks to prove the existence of the Loch Ness Monster. His claims meet with hostility, but one reporter decides to test them for himself. Black and White / 73 mins / 1.33:1 / Mono / English THE LOVES OF JOANNA GODDEN (1947) Googie Withers stars as a young woman who flouts convention by choosing to run the farm she inherited, and by rejecting the man she is expected to marry... Black and White / 85 mins / 1.33:1 / Mono / English BIRDS OF PREY (1930) A former police commissioner becomes the target of a revenge plot by two men he had helped convict years before. Black and White / 91 mins / 1.19:1 / Mono / English DAVY (1957) A young music-hall entertainer aspires to stardom on his own terms, but faces a dilemma as to whether he should go it alone or stick with his family troupe. Colour / 79 mins / 2.35:1 / Mono / English

As with most compilations, the collection has good bits and not-so-good bits, and people may well have differing views about what is or is not good anyway. Being totally fed up with modern American Coca-Colonisation, there is always for me at least some pleasure in seeing again something of a seemingly simpler, British world, however dated the film and its techniques may be.
