Ealing Studio Tour

TCM is airing several comedies from Britain's Ealing Studios tonight; a studio that made some of the great comedies of the late 1940s and early 1950s. A couple of them star Alec Guinness, and I've mentinoed those before:

The Lavender Hill Mob kicks off the night at 8:00 PM ET;
The Ladykillers is on at midnight; and
Guinness plays eight characters in Kind Hearts and Coronets at 1:45 AM.

(I haven't actually seen the fourth, The Man in the White Suit, at 10:30 PM.)

Perhaps just as much worth watching is the documentary that accompanies tonight's TCM schedule; Forever Ealing at 9:30 PM.
