  • Three Hats for Lisa [DVD] Three Hats for Lisa | DVD | (12/08/2013) from £4.99  |  Saving you £5.00 (50.10%)  |  RRP £9.99

    Featuring a cast and production crew that reads like a Who's Who of British Sixties talent, Three Hats for Lisa is an exuberant, whimsical and utterly irresistible musical romp set in the heart of Swinging London; Sidney Hayers directs, while Oscar- and Grammy-winning composer Leslie Bricusse supplies the songs.

  • The Thirty Nine Steps [1959] The Thirty Nine Steps | DVD | (07/07/2003) from £4.69  |  Saving you £5.30 (53.10%)  |  RRP £9.99

    While it's true that this 1959 screen adaptation of The 39 Steps pales in comparison to Alfred Hitchcock's seminal 1935 version, it's still a thoroughly enjoyable romp that compensates for a lack of any tension whatsoever with a generous dose of genial good humour. Affable Kenneth More's Richard Hannay more closely resembles the kind of roles Cary Grant was playing for Hitch in the late 1950s; Finnish blonde Taina Elg, in the somewhat unlikely role of a prim Scottish schoolmistress, is his love interest. Although handcuffed together, More and Elg fail to radiate any sexual chemistry, even when scandalously forced to share a room and a bed. Much better are the delightful cameos: Sid James as a roguish lorry driver; Brenda De Banzie as voluptuous psychic Nellie; and Joan Hickson as a simpering teacher. As a thriller it's hardly in the same league as North by Northwest, but as a window on life in England and Scotland in the 1950s, this 39 Steps has much to recommend it. --Mark Walker

  • Carry On Up The Jungle [1970] Carry On Up The Jungle | DVD | (07/07/2003) from £5.99  |  Saving you £7.00 (53.90%)  |  RRP £12.99

    Carry On Up the Jungle has worn less well than some of the others in the series, simply because the African exploration genre it parodies--with its cannibals, great white hunters and lost Amazon tribes--is so entirely out of fashion. Still, Frankie Howerd made so comparatively few films that in one which has him as an ornithologist searching for rare birds in the company of Joan Sims and Sid James is not going to be entirely without interest. He has few great moments here, but runs through his usual repertoire of groans and horse-faced sorrowful expressions with brio. The idea of Terry Scott playing Tarzan is in itself such a good joke that it hardly matters that most of what follows is him swinging, on ropes, into obstacles. --Roz Kaveney

  • Carry On Up The Khyber [1968] Carry On Up The Khyber | DVD | (12/05/2003) from £4.69  |  Saving you £8.30 (63.90%)  |  RRP £12.99

    Filmed in 1968 and set in British India in 1895, Carry On Up the Khyber is one of the team's most memorable efforts. Sid James plays Sid James as ever, though nominally his role is that of Sir Sidney Ruff-Diamond, the unflappable British Governor who must deal with the snakelike, scheming Khasi of Khalabar, played by Kenneth Williams. A crisis occurs when the mystique of the "devils in skirts" of the 3rd Foot and Mouth regiment is exploded when one of their number, the sensitive-to-draughts Charles Hawtrey, is discovered by the natives to be wearing underpants. Revolt is in the offing, with Bernard Bresslaw once again playing a seething native warrior. Roy Castle neatly plays the sort of role normally assigned to Jim Dale, as the ineffectual young officer, Peter Butterworth is a splendid compromised evangelist, while Terry Scott puts his comedic all into the role of the gruff Sergeant. Most enduring, however, is the final dinner party sequence in which the British contingent, with the Burpas at the gates of the compound, and plaster falling all about them, demonstrate typical insouciance in the face of imminent peril. The "I'm Backing Britain" Union Jack hoist at the end, however, over-excitedly reveals the streak of reactionary patriotism that lurked beneath the bumbling double-entendres of most Carry On films. --David Stubbs

  • Father Brown [DVD] [1954] Father Brown | DVD | (02/03/2009) from £4.69  |  Saving you £5.30 (53.10%)  |  RRP £9.99

    Alec Guinness stars as G.K. Chestertons legendary detective Father Brown in this splendid comedy thriller directed by Robert Hamer (Kind Hearts and Coronets).

  • Bless this House: Complete Series (repackaged) Bless this House: Complete Series (repackaged) | DVD | (01/09/2008) from £27.45  |  Saving you £-17.46 (-174.80%)  |  RRP £9.99

    Sid James stars as successful travelling stationery salesman and average family man Sid Abbott in this classic television comedy. A man who would give anything for a quiet life his position as head of the chaotic Abbott household is constantly being eroded by the harassment and seemingly unreasonable demands made by his family - wife and sparring partner Jean (Diana Coupland) groovy art school dropout son Mike (Robin Stewart) and schoolgirl daughter Sally (Sally Geeson). The sympathetic neighbours Betty (Patsy Rowlands) and Trevor (Anthony Jackson) are always on hand to make a bad situation worse... This 12-disc set features all 65 episodes of the series and also includes the feature film version made in 1972.

  • Carry On At Your Convenience [1971] Carry On At Your Convenience | DVD | (07/07/2003) from £4.69  |  Saving you £8.30 (63.90%)  |  RRP £12.99

    In 1971 when Carry On at Your Convenience hit our screens, the series had long since become part of the fabric of British popular entertainment. Never mind the situation, the characters were essentially the same, film after film. The jokes were all as old as the hills, but nobody cared, they were still funny. But it's just too easy to treat them as a job lot of postcard humour and music hall innuendo. This tale of revolt at a sanitary ware factory--Boggs and Son, what else?--certainly chimed in with the state of the nation in the early 1970s when strikes were called at the drop of a hat. Here, tea urns, demarcation and the company's decision to branch out into bidets all wreak havoc. Kenneth Williams as the company's besieged managing director, Sidney James and Joan Sims give their all as usual, but it's the lesser roles that really add some lustre. Hattie Jacques as Sid's budgerigar-obsessed, sluggish put-upon wife and Renee Houston as a superbly domineering battleaxe with a penchant for strip poker remind us that in the hands of fine actors, even the laziest of caricatures become real human beings. --Piers Ford

  • The Lavender Hill Mob [1951] The Lavender Hill Mob | DVD | (21/06/2004) from £2.99  |  Saving you £5.03 (29.60%)  |  RRP £16.99

    Directed by Charles Crichton, who would much later direct John Cleese in A Fish Called Wanda (1988), 1951's The Lavender Hill Mob is the most ruefully thrilling of the Ealing Comedies. Alec Guinness plays a bowler-hatted escort of bullion to the refineries. His seeming timidity, weak 'r's and punctiliousness mask a typically Guinness-like patient cunning. "I was aware I was widiculed but that was pwecisely the effect I was stwiving to achieve". He's actually plotting a heist. With more conventionally cockney villains Sid James and Alfie Bass in tow, as well as the respectable but ruined Stanley Holloway, Guinness' perfect criminal plan works in exquisite detail, then unravels just as exquisitely, culminating in a nail-biting police car chase in which you can't help rooting for the villains. The Lavender Hill Mob depicts a London still up to its knees in rubble from World War II, a world of new hope but continued austerity, a budding new order in which everything seems up for grabs; as such it could be regarded as a lighter hearted cinematic cousin to Carol Reed's 1949 masterpiece The Third Man. The Lavender Hill Mob also sees the first, fleeting on-screen appearance of Audrey Hepburn in the opening sequence. --David Stubbs
