British Film and Production Companies-Ealing Studios

Director Terence Davies on the heyday of Ealing Studios.

The Specification is assuming that “Ealing” represents the work of that studio during the 1940s and 1950s.

Ealing is associated with its famous comedy films such as:

Kind Hearts and Coronets

The Lavender Hill Mob

The Man in the White Suite

The Ladykillers.

This represents a very clear and coherent body of work. However, there are other ways of approaching Ealing, most obviously by

reference to their war and crime films:

War films include:

Went the Day Well

The Cruel Sea

Crime films include:

The Blue Lamp
