The Man in the White Suit by Alexander Mackendrick (1951, 85 min., DCP). Sidney Stratton (Guinness) has a dream: to develop a fabric that never gets dirty and never wears out. When Daphne (Joan Greenwood) comes to understand what Sidney is trying to do, she convinces her father, Mr. Birnley (Cecil Parker), that developing Sidney’s fabric would be great for business—and mankind.
