GEORGE PERRY
    Forever Ealing
    A Celebration of the Great British Film Studio Paperback Book (1994)

    Header Photo: Detail from the classic promotional poster for the Ealing movie, Ladykillers. One of many films discussed at length but for me the joy of the book is finding more out about the lesser Ealing films like the strangely strange The Night My Number Came Up. This is one of the many Ealing films the sublime London Live channel have recently repeated.

    PRODUCT DESCRIPTION (BACK COVER)

    'Everything about Ealing was defiantly small, and glorified the small at the expense of the big, the conventional, the pompous.' Thus Peter Ustinov, in his introduction to this book, defines the unique appeal of the films made at this great British studio in the 1940s and 1950s. Under the firm guidance of Sir Michael Balcon, Ealing in its heyday produced such classic comedies as Passport to Pimlico, Kind Hearts and Coronets, Whisky Galore and The Lavender Hill Mob, as well as excellent dramas including Scott of the Antarctic and The Cruel Sea. Stars of the calibre of Sir Alec Guinness, Stanley Holloway, Alastair Sim and Jack Hawkins gave some of their most notable performances.

    This first comprehensive history of Ealing, 'The Studio with the Team Spirit' is written with persuasive skill and integrity by Sunday Times journalist George Perry, and illustrated with a magnificent collection of film stills. Forever Ealing is an entertaining and evocative record of a richly creative period in British cinema history, now given a new lease of life by the purchase and re-opening of Ealing Studios in 1993 thus reviving the excellent traditions of the classic Ealing era.

    'Ealing's contribution to the hey-day of British films was unique and this book records it faithfully and interestingly.' SIR ALEC GUINNESS

    'Mr Perry...has come up with a book saturated in a very rare quality among cinema boks, the quality of charm. The documentation is exhaustive but never exhausting, the black-and-white illustrations are exactly right for the subject, and there is a feel about the work as a whole that nobody is ever going to tackle the subject more effectively...a definitive work on a deserving subject.' BENNY GREEN, BOOK BUYER

    'This splendid book...Mr Perry covers the lot here, outlining the plots and discussing their worth, with scenes from the pictures on almost every page.' T.E.B. CLARKE, PUNCH

    'Illustrated with hundreds of stills. and with cast lists and production credits for reference. (Perry) adds his own, usually restrained, critical judgement, reserving his weighest opinions for the genre rather than the individual films.' THE SPECTATOR

    I would love to make this page different to the countless book pages on this book that are out there in the cut and paste world that is the web. You know, brief outline, thumbnail of cover and, if you're lucky, the back cover. Very little content is original and you'll find that on alot of releases. Any reviews leave out the fact that this book has a heart and soul and touches people in different ways. So if you would like to add anything on the film, whether good or bad, or trivia on the film - indeed anything like how it made you feel when you first saw it - then e-mail me here (ihuppert5@aol.com) and I'll add it within 24 hours, crediting you with just your first name.
