    Scientist Invents Suit That Does Not Wear Out until everyone's patience does

  • A comedy about a serious subject.

    In addition to the competent stars which make this film a true classic, subject is very current in today's uncertain world. Guiness's character is a scientist whose motives for creating the perfect fiber does not recognize how his great triumph would be recieved by labor and management. Traditional animosities come together in fear of what Guiness's invention will bring. Management feared sales would plument, and labor feared the loss of employment if suits and dresses would never wear out.This same quandray faces the European and American societies. Our labor has become to expensive to sell goods in our own country, let alone abroad. Capitalists have gone abroad to seek cheaper labor. Both sides profit, and both lose. The laboring classes buy foreign goods because they are cheaper and often as good or better. (Cars from Japan have now displaced American cars.)Inventions resulting in new products, or new methods of manufacturing have always caused angst because they often change the world forever. Fortunately, the forces always prove more than either labor or the manufacturers can overcome. In this film, Guiness's invention is limited to one suit to the satisfaction of everyone else. However, man no longer relies on cotton, wool and flax. Some lose and some gain, but no one can turn the clock back.This film demonstrates this "law" of economics in a very comedic and delightful film.
