Another break away from Ealing’s predominantly comedic output, It Always Rains on Sunday moves into the terrain of serious drama. Directed by Robert Hamer (Kind Hearts and Coronets), It Always Rains on Sunday stars Googie Withers as Rose Sandigate, a Bethnal Green housewife whose Sunday is turned upside down by the re-appearance of an old flame who is now an escaped convict seeking protection from the police. A detailed glimpse into life in London’s East End post WWII, It Always Rains on Sunday was Googie Wither’s last film for Ealing Studios and, due to her wonderful performance as a woman trapped in a claustrophobic domesticity, it remains one of her best.
