Pink String and Sealing Wax
FILM / 10.50am / TCM
Ealing’s Robert Hamer went on to direct Kind Hearts and Coronets (showing at 3.00pm) but got his career going with this Brighton-set melodrama colliding strict Victorian patriarch Mervyn Johns with pub floozy Googie Withers. Heaving bosoms, blackmail and a poisoning all follow. Glorious old-school wickedness.
Googie Withers has murder in mind
