Green Grow the Rushes (1951) is a British comedy film from the production company A.C.T. Films.
Three British government bureaucrats arrive in Kent to inquire as to why the coastal Anderida marsh is not being cultivated. The reason is that most of the local people know about or are involved in the liquor smuggling scheme operated by Captain Biddle and his accomplice Robert (Richard Burton), who is posing as a fisherman when he is seen by the newspaper editor and his journalist daughter Meg. Robert persuades them not to report it in the newspaper, and tells Biddle about his encounter with them. Biddle does not like the idea of any local “Lily White” knowing about their illegal activity; he was once married to a Lily White. The smugglers’ next cargo gets caught in a violent storm, and their boat washes inland, settling in the meadow of a farmer whose wife Polly happens to be Biddle’s ex-wife.
Based on the 1949 novel Green Grow the Rushes by Howard Clewes. The title, at least, is inspired by the 18th-century folk song "Green Grow the Rushes, O", in which each of the 12 verses after the first has the penultimate line, “Two, two, the lily-white boys, clothed all in green O.” The song is

The Man In The White Suit is a 1951 satirical comedy film made by Ealing Studios. It starred Alec Guinness, Joan Greenwood, and Cecil Parker, and was directed by Alexander Mackendrick. It followed a common Ealing Studios theme of the "common man" against the Establishment. In this instance the hero falls foul of both trade unions and the wealthy mill owners who attempt to suppress his invention. The film was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Writing (Screenplay) for Roger MacDougall, John Dighton, and Alexander Mackendrick.
Sidney Stratton, a brilliant young research chemist and former Cambridge scholarship recipient, has been dismissed from jobs at several textile mills in the north of England because of his demands for expensive facilities and his obsession to invent an everlasting fibre. Whilst working as a labourer at the Birnley mill, he accidentally becomes an unpaid researcher and invents an incredibly strong fibre which repels dirt and never wears out. From this fabric, a suit is made—which is brilliant white because it cannot absorb dye, and slightly luminous because it includes radioactive elements.
Stratton is lauded as a genius until both management and the trade
The Purple Plain was a 1954 motion picture based on the 1947 novel The Purple Plain by H. E. Bates. Produced with a relatively modest budget by J.Arthur Rank Studios, the production was directed by Robert Parrish, with screen writing by novelist Eric Ambler in consultation with the author. Color photography was by Geoffrey Unsworth. The film was produced on location in Sigaria, in what was then Ceylon (now Sri Lanka), and utilized several locations later used in the "Bridge on the River Kwai". The film was successful at the box office and was ultimately nominated in the category of ‘’Best British film’’ of 1954 at the 8th British Academy Film Awards. The award was presented to the dramatic comedy, “Hobson’s Choice.” Actor Maurice Denham was also nominated for the BAFTA Award for Best Actor in a Leading Role for his performance as Blore.
The Purple Plain is generally historically accurate with good production values and attention to detail, and depicts the native Burmese in a respectful manner. The love story between Bill and Anna is well portrayed, with the relationship between a Westerner and a young Asian woman developing in a very courteous reserved manner. The war based
