"Alec Guinness is excellent in this Ealing comedy as a textile industry scientist who invents a fabric that is dirt-resistant and is indestructible. This does not go down well with his boss and his fellow workers who think they will go out of work because of his invention. This is a very funny movie, in that particularly witty, intelligent, satirical, slightly evil style found in the best post-war British movies. A brilliant performance from Alec Guinness - a man who was on top of his game at the"

"'The Man in the White Suit' is a great little satire from Ealing studios, starring Alec Guiness as a young research chemist who is attempting to create an everlasting fabric. When he unexpectedly succeeds, he quickly falls foul of trade unionists and managers alike who will stop at nothing to suppress his invention. The humour here is broader than in some of the stronger Ealing comedies and Guiness, though predictably great, has less to work with in his characterization. Nevertheless, 'The Man "
