Shelagh Delaney's play 'A Taste of Honey' had already played in the West End and on Broadway when Tony Richardson made his film adaptation shot on location in Salford and Blackpool.

The Bed Sitting Room | DVD | (25/05/2009)
from £9.99 | Saving you £0.91 (5.10%) | RRP
Directed by Richard Lester (A Hard Day's Night Superman II & III The Four Musketeers Robin and Marian The Knack) The Bed Sitting Room is based on a play by Spike Milligan and John Antrobus. Set in a post-apocalyptic London nine months after World War III (the Nuclear Misunderstanding) which lasted two minutes and twenty eight seconds - including the signing of the peace treaty. Nucelar fallout is producing strange mutations in people; the title refers to the character Lord Fortnum who finds himself transforming into a bed sitting room. The plot concerns the fate of the first child to be born after the war. The film can be compared to Milligan's work with The Goons but with a savage cynical and more surreal edge. This was probably the first time that Milligan let his creative dark side out into the light. The bizarre set design has been an influence on filmmakers such as Terry Gilliam and Jeunet and Caro (Delicatessen). The cast list includes the cream of British comedic and acting talent from the late 1960's: Rita Tushingham Ralph Richardson Peter Cook Harry Secombe Dudley Moore Spike Milligan Michael Horden Roy Kinnear Arthur Lowe Dandy Nichols and Marty Feldman. Lots of people talk about 'lost classics' but The Bed Sitting Room is a film that truly deserves that description. It was not particularly well received at the box office but that may be due to the profound strangeness of the film. However it's reputation has grown over the years and VHS copies taped from a BBC broadcast 25 years ago have been selling for ridiculous prices online. It beggars belief that such a startling piece of British cinema has remained in the vaults for so long. Over an hour of extras will include interviews from 1967 with Richard Lester Spike Milligan and Peter Cook.
