The Man in the White Suit (Mackendrick)

The Man in the White Suit

Alexander Mackendrick

A scientist invents a dirt-resistant, unbreakable fabric. Congratulated at first, the textile manufacturers then turn against him and start a manhunt. With cinematography by Douglas Slocombe, who died in 2016, this was one of the greatest successes of 1950s British comedy.
