  • Oliver [1968] Oliver | DVD | (11/12/2000) from £2.98  |  Saving you £15.51 (77.60%)  |  RRP £19.99

    Film buffs and critics can argue until their faces turn blue about whether this lavish Dickensian musical deserved the Academy Award for Best Picture of 1968, but the movie speaks for itself on grandly entertaining terms. Adapted from Dickens's classic novel, it's one of the most dramatically involving and artistically impressive musicals of the 1960s, directed by Carol Reed with a delightful enthusiasm that would surely have impressed Dickens himself. Mark Lester plays the waifish orphan Oliver Twist, who is befriended by the pick-pocketing Artful Dodger (Jack Wild) and recruited into the gang of boy thieves led by Fagin (played to perfection by Ron Moody). The villainous Bill Sikes (Oliver Reed) casts his long shadow over Oliver and his friends, but the young orphan is still able to find loving care in the most desperate of circumstances. Full of memorable melodies and splendid lyrics, Oliver! is a timeless film, prompting even hard-to-please critic Pauline Kael to call it "a superb demonstration of intelligent craftsmanship," and to further observe that "it's as if the movie set out to be a tribute to Dickens and his melodramatic art as well as to tell the story of Oliver Twist". --Jeff Shannon, Amazon.com

  • The Quiet Man [DVD] [1952] The Quiet Man | DVD | (03/06/2013) from £3.95  |  Saving you £5.50 (55.10%)  |  RRP £9.99

    Blarney and bliss, mixed in equal proportions. John Wayne plays an American boxer who returns to the Emerald Isle, his native land. What he finds there is a fiery prospective spouse (Maureen O'Hara) and a country greener than any Ireland seen before or since--it's no surprise The Quiet Man won an Oscar for cinematography. It also won an Oscar for John Ford's direction, his fourth such award. The film was a deeply personal project for Ford (whose birth name was Sean Aloysius O'Fearna), and he lavished all of his affection for the Irish landscape and Irish people on this film. He also stages perhaps the greatest donnybrook in the history of movies, an epic fistfight between Wayne and the truculent Victor McLaglen--that's Ford's brother, Francis, as the elderly man on his deathbed who miraculously revives when he hears word of the dustup. Barry Fitzgerald, the original Irish elf, gets the movie's biggest laugh when he walks into the newlyweds' bedroom the morning after their wedding and spots a broken bed. The look on his face says everything. The Quiet Man isn't the real Ireland but as a delicious never-never land of Ford's imagination, it will do very nicely. --Robert Horton

  • The Glenn Miller Story [1953] The Glenn Miller Story | DVD | (04/06/2007) from £4.58  |  Saving you £5.41 (54.20%)  |  RRP £9.99

Hollywood beckoned and success piled upon success. But then came World War II. A war from which Glenn Miller never returned. He was on his way to Paris to entertain the American Forces when his plane disappeared. But the show had to go on...and Glenn Miller became a legend. The film features all of Glenn Miller's hits and there are many guest performances who make this film an all time classic. Winner of an Oscar for Best Sound in 1955.

  • Hello, Dolly! [DVD] [1969] Hello, Dolly! | DVD | (09/04/2012) from £4.49  |  Saving you £5.50 (55.10%)  |  RRP £9.99

    Barbra Streisand is a knockout as Dolly Levi, the woman who arranges things...like furniture and daffodils and lives.

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.

  • Dad's Army: The Movie [DVD] [1971] Dad's Army: The Movie | DVD | (23/11/2015) from £3.26  |  Saving you £0.89 (14.90%)  |  RRP £5.99

    Five fine episodes of the evergreen Home Guard sitcom here. Dad's Army endures because it combines a healthy dollop of self-mockery with a sense of pride in Britain's lonely defiance against Hitler's might in 1940, encapsulated in the pompous and incompetent yet courageous Captain Mainwaring. Arthur Lowe is sublime in this role. Though he generally acts as a foil to his flippant platoon of funny stereotypes (Walker, Frazier, Godfrey, etc.), his subtle double-takes and apoplectic facial expressions of exasperation are endlessly hilarious. Corporal Jones' doddery recklessness can generally be relied upon to culminate in a finale involving trousers, cries of "Don't panic!" and chases across country but the masterstroke of this series was the casting against type of John Le Mesurier as the vague, aristocratic Sergeant and Lowe as his military but not social superior. These episodes include "The Day The Balloon Went Up" (a typically frantic caper involving a stray barrage balloon), "The Two And A Half Feathers" (including a wonderful Jonesy flashback to his days in the Sudan) and "The Deadly Attachment", in which Pike cheeks the captain of a captive U-Boat crew, who demands his name to add to his "list" of insolent Englanders. "Don't tell him, Pike!" urges Mainwaring. --David Stubbs

  • Far From the Madding Crowd [DVD] [1967] Far From the Madding Crowd | DVD | (01/06/2015) from £5.73  |  Saving you £12.26 (68.10%)  |  RRP £17.99

The restoration process of Far From the Madding Crowd was overseen by the film's cinematographer and acclaimed director, Nicolas Roeg. The Digital Film restoration was funded by STUDIOCANAL in collaboration the BFI's Unlocking Film Heritage programme, Awarding funds from the National Lottery.

  • An Affair to Remember [DVD] [1957] An Affair to Remember | DVD | (02/07/2012) from £4.27  |  Saving you £5.72 (57.30%)  |  RRP £9.99

But a tragic accident prevents their rendezvous and the lovers' future takes an emotional and uncertain turn.

  • The Inn of the Sixth Happiness [DVD] [1958] The Inn of the Sixth Happiness | DVD | (05/11/2012) from £4.99  |  Saving you £5.00 (50.10%)  |  RRP £9.99

    An epic and extraordinary true story--or, at least, an extraordinary story based on a novel (Alan Burgess's The Small Woman) based on a true story. Gladys Aylward (an improbably mesmerizing Ingrid Bergman) is a British would-be missionary with an obsession about China. As she has no experience, the Missionary Society won't let her go, but she goes anyway, alone, to a remote northern province. She is hated, then loved; finally she becomes both a significant political figure and the heroine of a miraculous escape in which she shepherds 100 children to safety across the mountains just ahead of a Japanese invasion. Curt Jurgens is suitably stony as Lin Nan, the half-Dutch, half-Chinese military officer who falls in love with her, and a visibly ailing Robert Donat (who died before this, his final film, was released) is the wily local mandarin who sees and makes use of her extraordinary abilities. Directed by Mark Robson, The Inn of the Sixth Happiness is a sweeping, stirring tearjerker, a big tale told in a big landscape with acres of orchestrated strings by Malcolm Arnold. A beautiful and beautifully made film that's a classic of the "everyone said I couldn't but I did it anyway" genre. --Richard Farr

  • The Grapes of Wrath [DVD] [1940] The Grapes of Wrath | DVD | (09/04/2012) from £4.99  |  Saving you £5.00 (50.10%)  |  RRP £9.99
