The Golden Age of Comedy Films--The British Are Coming!
The American Vaudeville Museum Cinema Project presents a pair of brilliant double-features from the Golden Age of Comedy. All four films hail from Merry Olde England and the legendary Ealing Studios. First up is 1951's The Man in the White Suit
(starring Sir Alec Guinness as a scientist pursued by criminals) and 1959's I'm All Right, Jack
(Peter Seller, Terry-Thomas and Sir Richard Attenborough in a manic satire of British capitalism). Next up is 1949's Whiskey Galore!
(about a cargo ship full of booze stranded on a tiny British isle) and 1950's The Happiest Days of Your Life
(in which the residents of a boys-only school and a girls-only school are mixed up by bumbling bureaucrats). Frank Cullen, author of Vaudeville Old and New
, will be on hand to introduce each film.
