You Can't Take It With You | DVD | (24/02/2003)
from £3.99 | Saving you £9.00 (69.30%) | RRP
You Can't Take It With You, Frank Capra's 1938 populist spin on the George S Kaufman and Moss Hart play about a family of happy eccentrics, is a great deal of fun, though it significantly rewrites the original work and doesn't represent Capra (Mr. Deeds Goes to Town, Mr. Smith Goes to Washington) at his best. Jean Arthur plays a member of the blissful Vanderhof househ old who falls in love with a rich man's son (James Stewart) and brings him into her nutty home. Lionel Barrymore, who played such a bad guy eight years later in Capra's It's a Wonderful Life, is the wonderful Grandpa Vanderhof, who addresses God during the dinner prayer as "sir" and speaks plainly and beautifully of why it's good to be alive. Capra took this opportunity to rail against big business and champion the common man, but the overall tone of the film--typical for the director's comedies--is buoyant and snappy. --Tom Keogh, Amazon.com
Destry Rides Again | DVD | (04/06/2007)
from £4.81 | Saving you £5.18 (51.90%) | RRP
Destry Rides Again will forever be remembered for Marlene Dietrich's performance as Frenchy a crooked saloon waitress with a heart of gold. Her rendition of ""See What the Boys in the Back Room Will Have"" is one of the highlights of her career. But Destry Rides Again has much more to offer than just Dietrich's performance. This hilarious satire carries Jimmy Stewart in the lead as Tom Destry a supposedly tough law enforcement man who doesn't like guns. Stewart's comic touches are brilliant as he eagerly gives out educational anecdotes anytime an opportunity affords itself. The plot concerns the efforts of a saloon owner and a corrupt Mayor to rob the local cowpokes blind. Frenchy's on the payroll of the bad guys but when sparks fly between her and Destry her loyalty becomes a deciding factor in whether it's Destry or the bad guys who will ride off into the sunset.
