The Alec Guiness Collection

Sir Alec Guinness delivers one of his most beloved performances as Sidney Stratton, an eccentric chemist who one day invents a fiber that never wrinkles, wears out or gets dirty. But when the mill owners and workers both realize that this miracle fabric will destroy their industry, Sidney suddenly becomes the most hunted man in the nation. Can a young idealist trapped between big business and mad unions find safety in science or will the future of Britain become unraveled by one extraordinary suit?

Directed by Alexander Mackendrick (The Ladykillers, Sweet Smell of Success), The Man in the White Suit received an Oscar nomination for Best Screenplay and is considered by fans and critics alike as the definitive Guiness/Ealing comedy. The Alec Guinness Collection presents this screen legend's classic comedies including Kind Hearts and Coronets, The Lavender Hill Mob, The Ladykillers and The Captain's Paradise, all still considered to be among the greatest movie comedies ever made.
