  • The Comedy Man [DVD] The Comedy Man | DVD | (21/04/2014) from £7.63  |  Saving you £2.36 (23.60%)  |  RRP £9.99

    A series of '50s box-office hits including Genevieve and A Night to Remember established Kenneth More as one of Britain's most accomplished and durable leading men and this bittersweet 1963 comedy further demonstrated the breadth of his talent. The Comedy Man features one of More's most compelling and sympathetic performances as an embattled but resolutely upbeat provincial actor staring middle age and failure in the face; wry touching and deftly scripted with a superb supporting cast it is easy to see why More ranked this film among his favourites. The Comedy Man is presented here in a brand-new digital transfer from the original film elements in its original aspect ratio. Following an indiscretion involving the producer's wife rep actor Chick Byrd is fired from the play in which he has had a leading role. Heading to London in search of bigger and better things he is reunited with a number of similarly straitened thespians as well as his spirited kind-hearted former love Judy. But it seems Byrd may be poised to find fame and even some fortune when in desperation he manages to land himself the starring role in a deodorant commercial...

    One of the most underrated British films produced between the end of the swinging sixties and the beginning of the hippy seventies. Leonard Whiting (Romeo from Franco Zeffirelli's Romeo and Juliet) plays a young dreamer who is trapped in a working class existence: living in a council house with a father who has no horizon higher than working in the local factory. Jean Simmons is the mature woman living in a leafy Surrey house with her stockbroker husband and two children but desperately unhappy. When the two unlikely lovers meet on a train to London Whiting ignores the come-on from Susan Penhaligon by saying 'today I am going to climb Mount Everest ' and so begins his charm offensive of the mature woman across London's 1970s landscape. Beautifully written and with expert filming by Geoffrey Unsworth Say Hello To Yesterday is one of the most insightful British films of its day.

  • Hoffman [1969] Hoffman | DVD | (08/07/2002) from £49.99  |  Saving you £N/A (N/A%)  |  RRP £12.99

    Hoffman is an odd cross between There's a Girl in My Soup and The Collector and is clearly one of the few film projects Peter Sellers took seriously enough to work hard on, rather than one of the many he breezed through on a talent for funny voices and unleashed chaos. The set-up is that secretary Miss Smith (Sinead Cusack) is blackmailed by meek, middle-aged Mr Hoffman (Sellers) into spending a week of domesticity with him in his flat, while she tells her fiance (Jeremy "Boba Fett" Bulloch) that she's with her gran in Scarborough. At first, the tone is creepy as Cusack dreads the terrors of sharing a bed with Sellers and he mutters darkly about an absent wife in terms that recall Crippen and the brides-in-the-bath murderer, but it becomes more poignant as both characters learn to see each other as people. The worst Sellers does in bed is snore loudly, while the unattainably glamorous young woman suffers from minor ailments like a bruised heel and night-time constipation, and the at-first simple relationship between them deepens as the girl comes to understand the half-life Hoffman has been leading. The script gives Sellers a lot of funny business, acid lines and whimsical turns, but he plays Hoffman as a repressed soul half-ashamed of his attempts to be funny, telling genuinely good jokes as if he expects no one will laugh. Cusack, more interesting than the expected dolly bird, keeps up with her co-star, and almost makes the strangely upbeat last reel believable. On the DVD: Hoffman comes to disc in a nice widescreen print. Otherwise, nada. The film is also available as part of the four-disc Peter Sellers Collection.--Kim Newman
