The sixth and final film in Kino Quickies season 1, screened on May 22nd 2022, was Brief Ecstasy from 1937.
Directed by Edmond Gréville - who is probably most famous for directing Beat Girl several years later - it's the story of a love triangle made up of Helen (Linden Travers), her husband Paul (Paul Lukas) and her former lover, Jim (Hugh Williams).
Charles doesn't only know about Ealing though - he's also no slouch when it comes to Hitchcock.
