  • Some Mothers Do Ave Em Series 1-3 Box Set + Christmas Specials [DVD] Some Mothers Do Ave Em Series 1-3 Box Set + Christmas Specials | DVD | (14/02/2011) from £12.98  |  Saving you £17.01 (56.70%)  |  RRP £29.99

    The complete series 1-3 plus the three Christmas specials of the 1970s BBC sitcom starring Michael Crawford as the accident-prone Frank Spencer. Well-meaning and optimistic but nave clueless and spectacularly incompetent Frank would find situations spiraling hilariously out of control. His long-suffering wife Betty can only stand by and watch as he is catapulted into a bit of trouble by the simplest task - a window cleaning job a driving test DIY or an RAF reunion. Michael Crawford was renowned for performing his own stunts in the series - some of the biggest and most dangerous in British comedy including the holiday camp bluecoat human fireworks display hanging from the exhaust of his Morris Minor as it teetered on a cliff edge and an unbelievable extended roller-skate.

  • Hello, Dolly! [Blu-ray] Hello, Dolly! | Blu Ray | (01/04/2013) from £7.59  |  Saving you £5.40 (41.60%)  |  RRP £12.99

    They just don't make musicals like this any more. There are some who would be grateful for that--the plot is but a flimsy excuse to string together song and dance numbers. Some of us, however, love big, splashy, overdone musical scenes, of which there are many. Glittering stage numbers showcase a commanding Barbra Streisand as Dolly Levy, a New York matchmaker who can find a mate for anyone. Anyone but herself, that is. Determined to marry wealthy Walter Matthau, she lures him out of Yonkers and sets about wooing him. Don't worry about the lack of a solid story or Gene Kelly's pedestrian direction. Watch instead for the musical numbers and the lavish costumes. Listen to Jerry Herman's score, and dance around the living room when a sequined Streisand arrives in a club as Louis Armstrong strikes up the title tune for her benefit. (Just pull the shades first.) Based on Thornton Wilder's play The Matchmaker, Hello, Dolly! won Academy Awards for best sound, art direction, and musical score. --Rochelle O'Gorman

  • Hello, Dolly! [DVD] [1969] Hello, Dolly! | DVD | (09/04/2012) from £5.39  |  Saving you £4.60 (46.00%)  |  RRP £9.99

    Barbra Streisand is a knockout as Dolly Levi, the woman who arranges things...like furniture and daffodils and lives. The famed plot concerns Dolly, a young widow and professional matchmaker who sets her sights on conquering tight-fisted Yonkers merchant, Horace Vandergeider, beautifully played by Walter Matthau. Over $20,000,000 was spent on DOLLY and you can see and hear every penny. The painstakingly re-created streetcars, shops, skyscrapers and town itself (circa 1900), the magnificent Harmonia Gardens set, Irene Sharoff's colour splashed costumes, Jerry Herman's hummingly tuneful direction. So, spend a magical evening with the incomparable Barbra - and see what great musicals are all about.

  • A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum [Blu-ray] A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum | Blu Ray | (22/02/2016) from £7.87  |  Saving you £8.12 (50.80%)  |  RRP £15.99

    The words of the opening song pretty much describe the menu in A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum--"Something familiar, something peculiar, something for everyone: a comedy tonight!"--a frantic adaptation of the stage musical by Larry Gelbart and Burt Shevelove. The wild story, based on the Latin comedies of Plautus and set in ancient Rome, follows a slave named Pseudolus (Zero Mostel, snorting and gibbering) as he tries to extricate himself from an increasingly farcical situation; Mostel and a bevy of inspired clowns, including Phil Silvers, Jack Gilford and Buster Keaton, keep the slapstick and the patter perking. The cast also includes the young Michael Crawford as a love-struck innocent. This project landed in the lap of Richard Lester, then one of the hot test directors in the world after his success with the Beatles' films. Lester telescoped the material through his own joke-a-second sensibility, and also ripped out some of the songs from Stephen Sondheim's Broadway score. The result is very close to the vaudeville spirit suggested by the title--though anyone with a low tolerance for Zero Mostel's overbearing buffoonery may be in trouble. Oddly enough, amid all the frenzy, Lester creates a grungy, earthy Rome that seems closer to the real thing than countless respectable historical films on the subject. Frankie Howerd, who played Pseudolus on the London stage, kept the tradition going with his Up Pompei TV series. --Robert Horton, Amazon.com

    Although Britain has changed almost beyond recognition since Some Mothers Do 'Ave 'Em was first broadcast in the early 1970s, the show's simple slapstick humour has an ageless quality that makes it enduringly hilarious. Michael Crawford found fame as Frank Spencer, still probably television's most accident-prone man, and still Britain's most mimicked sitcom character, having inspired thousands of wannabe entertainers to don black berets and Humphrey Bogart-style rain coats and feebly exclaim "Mmm, Betty!". Crawford's great insight was to portray Frank as both a figure of fun and an endearingly sympathetic character: we laugh at him but never cease liking him, and we always admire his plucky never-say-die spirit. Most of the episodes share the common theme of Frank attempting to find a job (ranging from a holiday camp entertainer to an RAF cadet), but because of his clumsy demeanour and lack of common sense, losing the positions within a matter of hours. Pitted against a variety of middle-aged, male professionals (his GP, a psychiatrist and a public relations consultant for example), Spencer's stupidity reduces these "experts" to nervous wrecks. His long-suffering, doting wife Betty (Michelle Dotrice) features throughout, but despite his wild behaviour and idiocy she appears only mildly flustered by her husband's actions. On the DVD: Some Mothers Do 'Ave 'Em was one of the first comedy series to be recorded by the BBC in colour, but the sound and vision of the episodes transfer perfectly satisfactorily to DVD format. At times the production values of some of the episodes are decidedly ropey (watch out for stray boom microphones and the skewed opening and closing credit). Apart from the episode and scene selection menus, which incorporate sound extracts from the show, no extras are included. --John Galilee
