    THE EALING STUDIOS RARITIES COLLECTION

    The Ealing Rarities Collection features new transfers from the best available elements, in their correct aspect ratio. This 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 FEMININE TOUCH (1956)

    A group of young nurses are followed through their training, facing the familiar trials of ardouous duties, romantic complications, nightmare patients, jolly doctors, stern matrons.

    YOUNG MAN'S FANCY (1939)

    A romantic comedy set in 1870 in which a young nobleman resists his domineering mother's attempt to force him into an unsuitable marriage, and falls in love instead with a human cannonball. They elope to Paris, facing both the siege and parental wrath. Naturally, all ends well.

    I would love to make this page different to the countless Dvd pages on Ealing Studios Rarities Collection - Volume 8 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 each movie has a heart and soul and touches people in different ways down the years. 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.

    I'll start it off: this Dvd set is worth it alone for Belinda Lee in The Feminine Touch. It's not even a great movie - it's a kind of Doctor in the House without the laughs - but it is that woman as a trainee nurse bathed in the dreamlike Eastmancolor that is something wonderous to behold. It's like the Goddess Venus landing on Planet Earth and deciding to work in the NHS. I swear I've never seen anything like it in my local Hospital. If this was the NHS in the 1950s then it's yet more prove how far the current model has fallen since those golden days.

    I knew nothing about her before the movie, After I kept thinking that her on screen presence is as big and spellbinding as a Greta Garbo or Marlene Dietrich. I'm in love with someone I will never know! Life is a b#tch at times.

    She's way too glamourous for the role. That mane of blonde hair deserves an acting credit on its own. Crafted like a moving work of art.

    Don't take my word for it though. Get the Dvd set and see for yourself.
