It’s your chance to win this newly restored classic!
We here at Rumsey’s are excited to announce that Pink String and Sealing Wax has been meticulously restored and will arrive on our store shelves from the 25th April in the UK on Blu-Ray, DVD and EST!
Here’s the official text to whet your appetite:
‘In 1890’s Brighton, the young son of a puritanical chemist longs to escape the repressive environment of his family life and the overbearing restraints of his cruel, pious father. Eventually finding refuge in a local tavern, he is immediately attracted to the sordid glamour of the drinking classes and the gritty world that they inhabit. He also finds himself becoming infatuated with the tavern’s landlady, which will inadvertently lead to him being drawn into a plot to kill her abusive husband. Directed by Robert Hamer ( Kind Hearts And Coronets , School For Scoundrels ), Pink String And Sealing Wax stars Googie Withers ( The Lady Vanishes ), Mervyn Johns ( Dead Of Night ) and Gordon Jackson ( Whisky Galore , The Quatermass Experiment ) in a film that cleverly entwines the dynamics of a thriller with biting social commentary and a multi-layered plot structure that contrasts the parallels of the British class system.’
