Contains a selection of films by the director David Lean. Includes THE SOUND BARRIER (1952), a World War II fighter pilot marries into the family of a wealthy oil magnate who also designs airplanes. Together they attempt to break the sound barrier; HOBSON'S CHOICE (1954), a working-class comedy which finds a bootmaker from Lancashire brought to book by his eldest daughter and her husband who have opened a rival shoe shop; BLITHE SPIRIT (1945), an adaptation of Noel Coward's three-act farce, in which a happily married author writing a novel on mediums, invites one to supper one evening. After holding a seance the husband's first wife appears and begins to cause chaos; BRIEF ENCOUNTER (1946), Lean adapts Noel Coward's heartbreaking tale of two ordinary people caught up in the extraordinary power of love. Laura (Celia Johnson) is a seemingly happy, middle-class housewife who meets the equally married physician Alec (Trevor Howard) at a London railway station, and so begins a chaste but passionate affair; GREAT EXPECTATIONS (1946), Lean directs this definitive version of the Charles Dickens classic about an orphaned boy befriended by a mysterious benefactor who enables him to become a gentleman of means. In the gloom of a country graveyard, the young boy encounters an escaped convict, and a chance meeting years later leads the boy to mysterious adventure, wealth and joy; OLIVER TWIST (1948), an adaptation of the Charles Dickens classic in which the orphan hero, Oliver, escapes to London, and is delivered by the Artful Dodger to the notorious Fagan; who makes him part of his pickpocketing gang; MADELEINE (1949), an illicit romance between a married English woman and a Frenchman turns sour when she tries to break off the affair and is callously blackmailed; THE PASSIONATE FRIENDS (1949), based on a H.G. Wells novel, the film tells the story of Mary Justin an unhappily married woman living in the Swiss Alps. When she encounters Steven Stratton, a man whose marriage proposal she once refused due to his social standing, the flame between them is rekindled; THIS HAPPY BREED (1947), based on the Noel Coward play, the story follows the ups and downs of the large, British, lower-class Gibbons family during the transitional period between the two world wars (1919-1939); and IN WHICH WE SERVE (1942), an engrossing account of the sinking of the British destroyer HMS Torrin during the Battle of Crete. Three survivors on a raft recount their lives aboard the sunken vessel.
