Bus Stop | Blu Ray | (29/07/2013)
from £9.59 | Saving you £3.40 (26.20%) | RRP
Though it seems dated now, Bus Stop was considered pretty hot stuff in 1956. Directed by Joshua Logan from George Axelrod's script of William Inge's comic-romantic Broadway hit, the film stars Marilyn Monroe as the kind of woman who can't understand why she always brings out the worst in men. She attracts the attention of a young rodeo rider (Don Murray) while on a bus, and finds herself trapped at a bus stop in the middle of nowhere during a blizzard. The young cowboy, whose intentions are honourable, can't control his temper and can't understand why this experienced woman won't take him seriously--and why she rejects him when he begins acting jealous and possessive. Love takes its lumps but comes out slugging in the end, with Marilyn at her vulnerable, jaded best. --Marshall Fine, Amazon.com

from £9.98 | Saving you £8.01 (44.50%) | RRP
Winning BAFTAs for Best British Screenplay and Best British Actor (Peter Sellers) I&rsquo;M ALL RIGHT JACK is popularly considered to be the best of John and Roy Boulting&rsquo;s social satires.Sellers plays both Sir John Kennaway and the tragic-comic trade union leader Fred Kite. The result is laugh-out-loud comedy with a satiric edge lampooning the then-burning issue of industrial relations. Bertram Tracepurcel (Dennis Price) plans to make a fortune from a missile contract a scheme that involves manipulating his innocent nephew Stanley Windrush (Ian Carmichael) into acting as the catalyst in an escalating labour dispute from which the socialist Mr. Kite is only too keen to make capital.

A sequel to 1956&rsquo;s A Private&rsquo;s Progress the ﬁlm is bought roaringly to life by Sellers&rsquo; astonishing turn as the Stalinist unionist.
