Pink String and Sealing Wax
Family and class conflict, murder and blackmail in Victorian Brighton. Read more
Two worlds collide in this melodrama set in Victorian Brighton: a repressive household, run by a tyrannical chemist, and a sleazy tavern, presided over by a passionate landlady. The chemist’s son (Jackson) finds himself, understandably enough, in thrall to the landlady (Withers). His naïve passion and rebellious feelings against his father lead him into a murder plot, prompting a very equivocal happy ending.
The screening on Fri 2 Nov will be introduced by Archive curator Nigel Algar
