SPECIAL EVENT JULY 8, 2016
On Friday July 8th as part of our July EALING REELS theme, we offer a tribute to the
late Ray Lonnen, star of stage and screen. Ray was an Ealing resident for many years
and still has family here. It's amazing to think we had a man of such immense talent
right here on our doorstep!
Ray's family will be present to honour him with stories and a specially prepared showreel of his
work. We'll finish with a Q&A with Ray's wife, the actress and writer Tara Ward.
Sure to be quite full so get your tickets soon! PURCHASE HERE

The Titfield Thunderbolt
directed by Charles Crichton
starring Stanley Holloway, George Relph, John Gregson, Hugh Griffith, Sid James
When the authorities order the closure of a railway line to a small village, the locals step up to operate it themselves,
if they can fend off the saboteurs and competition from the bus company, and government inspections of their
ancient train. With the focus on the little man up against the establishment, it shares its subversive social themes
with the best Ealing Comedies.
Friday 22nd July
Saraband for Dead Lovers
directed by Basil Dearden
starring Joan Greenwood, Stewart Granger, Flora Robson
Set in the royal court of Hanover in the 17th century, this tragic romance is a historic tale of the arranged marriage
and passionate love affair of Sophia Dorothea of Celle. Ealing Studios chose to make this costume melodrama
their first film in colour, with a distinct use of Technicolor, and its big-budget luxurious production values were
nominated for an Academy Award.
Friday 29th July
My Learned Friend
directed by Basil Dearden and Will Hay
starring Will Hay, Claude Hulbert, Mervyn Johns
When a criminal is released from prison, he targets everyone involved in the trial that ended with his conviction, and
threatens to murder them with methods that make the most of his imagination and dark sense of humour. His former
lawyer sets out to foil the plot and save his own life. Comic Will Hay’s last film is a jet-black farce, from the makers
who would later create other killer comedies for Ealing Studios.
When a wealthy young idler hires a manservant, he insidiously
upturns his household, lifestyle and relationships into disorder.
As a psychological drama-thriller and dark comedy, this is an
intricately photographed and sharply scripted work about class
strife and power struggles. Winner of BAFTA awards and others
for best actor, best cinematography and best screenplay.
