The Wrong Box | DVD | (16/02/2009)
from £4.39 | Saving you £5.60 (56.10%) | RRP
A "tontine" is drawn up on behalf several young British boys. Each of the boys' parents had placed 1000 pounds in a pool, to be invested and expanded upon. The resultant fortune will go to the last surving member of the tontine. A series of montages depicts the various demises of the heirs. Finally, only two of the tontine participants are left: aged brothers Ralph Richardson and John Mills. On his last legs, Mills is determined that Richardson will not outlive him, and to that end attempts to kill his brother; each attempt fails spectacularly, with the doddering Richardson none the wiser. Standing to benefit from the tontine are Mills' dimwitted med-student son Michael Caine and Richardson's greedy nephews Peter Cook and Dudley Moore. When Richardson is supposedly killed in a train wreck, Cook and Moore don't want the authorities to find out, so they appropriate what they think is their uncle's corpse and ship it home in a box. Thus it is that Caine finds the body of a perfect stranger on his doorstep. The farcical complications begin flying about thick and fast from this point onward. Among the participants in this wacky film are such formidable talents as Peter Sellers, Tony Hancock, Wilfred Lawson, Thorley Walters, Norman Rossington, Irene Handl and Cicely Courtenedge. Based on a novel by Robert Louis Stevenson, The Wrong Box is a delightful harkback to the glory days of Britain's Ealing comedies.

Alice In Wonderland | DVD | (24/11/2014)
from £8.99 | Saving you £16.00 (64.00%) | RRP
Alice in Wonderland the haunting nightmarish 1966 BBC Television version writ-ten and directed by Jonathan Miller and starring Peter Sellers Sir John Gielgud Sir Michael Redgrave Wilfrid Brambell Peter Cook Alan Bennett John Bird Leo McKern and Anne-Marie Mallik as Alice. Shot in pinpoint ghostly black and white with a dream-like editing schematic actors dressed not in costumes but in period clothes and a jarring seductive beautiful score by Ravi Shankar this Alice in Wonderland is like no other version you'll see of the Lewis Carroll classic. Alice in Wonderland is a dark nightmarish excursion into pointless almost listlessmadness...which makes it even more off-putting and uncomfortable in its rigid diffidence. Alice in Wonderland doesn't look like anything I've ever associated with the literary source. Instead Miller gives us an Alice who sleepwalks through increasingly madden-ing scenes that although she says she's a bit confused by them on the soundtrack she doesn't appear fazed by them at all.

The Hound Of The Baskervilles | DVD | (30/08/2004)
from £26.99 | Saving you £N/A (N/A%) | RRP
It could have been a stroke of genius reuniting Peter Cooke and Dudley Moore in a send-up of The Hound of the Baskervilles. In the event, director Paul Morrissey goes for Carry On-style humour: plenty of coarse word-play and camp innuendo, but little wit or subtlety. Cooke is a rather androgynous Sherlock Holmes, while Moore inexplicably attempts a Welsh accent to portray Dr Watson (his cameo as Holmes' mother is far less contrived). The support cast is a compendium of British comedy acting of the period--all now departed, and clearly relishing the one-liners and musical-hall farce. There are excellent contributions from Max Wall, Joan Greenwood (priceless in the seduction scene), and--in one of his last major screen appearances--Terry Thomas, as well as a winning "madame" from Penelope Keith. Don't expect even a free adaptation of Conan Doyle's novel, just let the humour take its enjoyably silly course. On the DVD: The Hound of the Baskervilles film reproduces very decently in the 4:3 aspect ratio, with stereo sound that's not too artificial in effect. Special features consist of nine biographical overviews, the re-release trailer, and a six-minute interview with director Morrissey. Die-hard fans of "Pete and Dud" will most welcome the inclusion of the original theatrical feature, playing for almost 80 minutes and featuring extra footage of Moore's wonderfully inept piano playing. --Richard Whitehouse

Triple bill of classic British comedies starring the likes of Peter Cook and Ronnie Barker.

'Sir Henry at Rawlinson's End' (1980) stars Trevor Howard as an English Peer of the Realm who attempts to exorcise the ghost of his dead brother with the aid of his equally eccentric friends and household staff. Finally, 'Futtock's End' (1969), written by, and starring Ronnie Barker, follows a weekend gathering at the decaying country home of General Futtock (Barker), which produces a series of saucy mishaps between staff and guests.
