StudioCanal is pleased to announce the 25th April 2016 new DVD, Blu-ray and EST release of Pink String And Sealing Wax which has been meticulously restored from its original negatives in 2K to commemorate the 2017 centenary of Googie Withers and more than 70 years since the film was first seen on UK cinema screens.

Based on the play by Roland Pertwee and with an all-star cast including Mervyn Johns, Googie Withers, Gordon Jackson, Jean Ireland, Mary Merall and Sally Ann Howes, Pink String And Sealing Wax is the solo directorial debut from Ealing Studios regular Robert Hamer (Kind Hearts And Coronets).

Set in Victorian Brighton, this roaring melodrama sees the much-loved Googie Withers (The Lady Vanishes, One Of Our Aircraft Is Missing, It Always Rains on Sunday, Night And The City, Shine) as femme fatale Pearl Bond, a frustrated innkeeper's wife who turns to extreme measures in order to escape her husband's grasp.

Tired of her drunk and abusive husband, Pearl befriends David (Gordon Jackson: The Great Escape, The Ipcress File, The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie, The Professionals, Upstairs Downstairs), the son of overbearing patriarch and respected chemist Edward Sutton (Mervyn Johns: Went The Day Well?, Dead Of Night, A Christmas Carol, Moby Dick, The Day Of The Triffids), who, oblivious to her manipulative ways, is unknowingly ensnared into a world of murder, blackmail and betrayal.

  • Interview with Melanie Williams (focusing on Women at Ealing)
