Early Slocombe

Slocombe at Ealing

Cinema Rediscovered 2018


Please note: this season finished in July 2018

Cinema Rediscovered continues its celebration of one of the true legends of cinema - cinematographer Douglas Slocombe (1913 - 2016) - with a pair of films from his time at Ealing Studios.

At the end of the Second World War, Slocombe found himself walking through the doors of Ealing Studios, a place where over the course of a few years he would hone his talents as a cinematographer while working on some of Ealing's most celebrated films.

Here we present two of his perhaps lesser-known Ealing films: the black and white period drama The Loves of Joanna Godden (which was shot mainly on location in and around Romney Marsh, Kent) on Sun 29 July at 10:20 and the period Technicolor drama Saraband for Dead Lovers (which was shot entirely within a studio environment) on Sun 29 July at 15:10.
