Set against a postwar England as Hitchcock may have rendered it, It Always Rains on Sunday portrays the intertwined lives of an ensemble cast of characters set in a section of London’s drab East End.

The story focuses on escaped convict Tommy Swann (John McCallum) who hides in the air raid shelter of Rose Sandigate (Googie Withers), his not-so-happily-married former fiancée. The first popular success from Ealing Studios, the film was directed by Robert Hamer (Kind Hearts and Coronets) and shot by Douglas Slocombe (The Lavender Hill Mob, the Indiana Jones trilogy). (92 mins., 35mm)
