    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 Studios 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.

    BRIEF ECSTASY (1937) A remarkable story of love lost and found, as a young couple are separated by circumstance, and plunged into emotional turmoil by a reunion... Black and White / 66 mins / 1.33:1 / Mono / English

    THE BIG BLOCKADE (1942) John Mills and Will Hay star in a wartime propaganda docu-drama showing the effects of the Allied blockade of Nazi Germany. Black and White / 71 mins / 1.33:1 / Mono / English 

    THE FOUR JUST MEN (1939) The Four Just Men unearth two vital clues which point towards a dastardly plan to bring down the whole of the British Empire! Black and White / 81 mins / 1.33:1 / Mono / English
