School For Scoundrels / The Green Man | DVD | (14/04/2003)
from £21.98 | Saving you £-4.99 (-29.40%) | RRP
In School for Scoundrels wimpy Ian Carmichael wants to impress girls and get one over on all-round show-off and cad Terry Thomas (playing gloriously to type). Discovering Alastair Simms' unorthodox school Carmichael happily enrols and learns the quaint tricks of the day for securing the admiration of a fair lady. Ultimately as a star pupil he teaches the Master a thing or two about true love when everything turns out just fine in the end. Appealing to all male sensibilities is the idea of a magical set of simple rules for winning someone's affections. Set in the tweed-rich environment of an English boarding school makes this an even quainter notion. To watch this classic comedy is to cock one's snoot at womanisers everywhere while unavoidably making a mental list of anything that might actually work! The three central performances are brilliantly realised, particularly the role reversal between Carmichael and Thomas. Try playing a tennis match after a viewing without calling "hard cheese". -Paul Tonks

Marilyn Monroe - The Diamond Collection | DVD | (05/08/2002)
from £12.49 | Saving you £50.04 (62.60%) | RRP
Released to mark the 40th anniversary of her death in 1962, The Diamond Collection brings together all of Marilyn Monroe's films for 20th Century Fox. This handsome box set stands as a salutary reminder of the considerable achievements of an actress who still reigns supreme as the greatest screen goddess of them all. The uninitiated might be surprised at the versatility of someone whose legend is founded so much on her image as a sex symbol. In particular, her touching performance as the abused second-rate bar singer Cherie in Bus Stop (1956) is a rounded study of a woman still capable of dreaming when life has done everything to dull her. The box set as a whole offers plenty of evidence that while she certainly specialised in a unique and complex variation on the blonde bombshell stereotype--embodied in her timeless performances as Lorelei Lee (Gentlemen Prefer Blondes) and short-sighted Pola in How to Marry a Millionaire, both 1953--she could certainly diversify. The documentary, Marilyn Monroe: The Final Days, provides a sympathetic take on the troubles and behaviour which led to her being sacked from her final picture, Something's Got to Give. The presentation of the restored footage from that movie is less successful, though, as the glimpses of Monroe's incandescent screen presence, belying her illness and depression, leave a palpable sadness in their wake. Better by far to focus on her earlier work. Whatever the role, her luminous beauty and statuesque figure, combined with an unselfconsciously joyful sexuality and an on-screen vulnerability, were always at their best under the careful guidance of directors like Billy Wilder and Otto Preminger. These qualities continue to give her an enduring appeal. On the DVD: The Diamond Collection has been digitally restored using, for the most part, the original negatives, making this a sumptuous package for any Monroe fan. Niagara and Gentlemen Prefer Blondes are both presented in standard 4:3 ratio but the rest--filmed in Cinemascope and presented here in letterbox format--are certainly better-served by widescreen viewing. The colours, like Monroe, come alive. The sound quality is crisp and Monroe's singing--she had limited but genuine musical talent--has polished up well. Multiple extras include before-and-after restoration comparisons, trailers from various countries, stills and posters, and newsreel footage. Eleven discs of Marilyn in one box, this is a veritable feast indeed. --Piers Ford

The Lucy Show 8 DVD Set | DVD | (11/02/2008)
from £20.89 | Saving you £4.10 (16.40%) | RRP
One of the most popular television comedies of all time The Lucy Show was the follow up to the equally successful I Love Lucy. Whilst I Love Lucy was pre-dominantly set in New York The Lucy Show saw Lucille switch to the West Coast working at a bank as secretary to Mr Carmichael. The series would eventually feature guest appearances from fellow celebrities all of whom wanted to either open accounts or had some dealings with the bank. Not surprisingly Lucille's attempts to assist invariably went wrong. Sometimes things went wrong that weren't in the script - the very first show in this set Lucy And Viv Put In A Shower sees Lucy and Viv trying to install a shower in order to save paying a plumber and become trapped inside as it continues to fill with water. Midway through filming Lucy was unable to return to the surface and was in danger of drowning. Her co-star Vivian Vance realized something was wrong and pulled her to safety then ad-libbed whilst Lucy got her breath back. The remaining cast and crew and live audience were completely unaware of the problem until told after the show was completed. The thirty episodes in this box set has guest appearances from John Wayne Jack Benny Phil Silvers Tennessee Ernie Ford and Robert Boulet among others and feature Lucy in one mishap after another. Set Comprises: Disc 1: Lucy And Viv Put In A Shower/Lucy's Barbershop Quartet/Lucy And George Burns/Lucy And The Submarine Disc 2: Lucy The Bean Queen/Lucy And Paul Winchell/Lucy And The Ring-A-Ding-Ding/Lucy Goes To London Disc 3: Lucy Gets A Room-Mate/Lucy And Carol In Palm Springs/LOucy Gets Caught Up In The Draft/Lucy And John Wayne Disc 4: Lucy And Pat Collins/Lucy And The Money/Lucy And Phil Silvers/Lucy's Substitute Secretary Disc 5: Viv Visits Lucy/Lucy The Babysitter/Main Street USA/Lucy Meets The Law Disc 6: Lucy The Fight Manager/Lucy and Tennessee Ernie Ford/Lucy Meets Sheldon Leonard/Lucy Meets The Berles Disc 7: Lucy Gets Trapped/Lucy And The French Movie Star/Lucy The Starmaker Disc 8: Lucy And Jack Benny's Account/Little Sid Lucy/Lucy And Robert Boulet

The Lost Weekend (Ltd Edition Blu-ray Steelbook) | Blu Ray | (25/06/2012)
from £19.87 | Saving you £-2.36 (-10.30%) | RRP
"I'm not a drinker--I'm a drunk." These words, and the serious message behind them, were still potent enough in 1945 to shock audiences flocking to The Lost Weekend. The speaker is Don Birnam (Ray Milland), a handsome, talented, articulate alcoholic. The writing team of producer Charles Brackett and director Billy Wilder pull no punches in their depiction of Birnam's massive weekend bender, a tailspin that finds him reeling from his favorite watering hole to Bellevue Hospital. Location shooting in New York helps the street-level atmosphere, especially a sequence in which Birnam, a budding writer, tries to hock his typewriter for booze money. He desperately staggers past shuttered storefronts--it's Yom Kippur, and the pawnshops are closed. Milland, previously known as a lightweight leading man (he'd starred in Wilder's hilarious The Major and the Minor three years earlier), burrows convincingly under the skin of the character, whether waxing poetic about the escape of drinking or screaming his lungs out in the D.T.'s sequence. Wilder, having just made the ultra-noir Double Indemnity, brought a new kind of frankness and darkness to Hollywood's treatment of a social problem. At first the film may have seemed too bold; Paramount Pictures nearly killed the release of the picture after it tested poorly with preview audiences. But once in release, The Lost Weekend became a substantial hit, and won four Oscars: for picture, director, screenplay, and actor. --Robert Horton
400 Blows | DVD | (16/12/2002)
from £8.95 | Saving you £-10.00 (-50.00%) | RRP
Praised by film-makers (Akira Kurosawa called it One of the most beautiful films that I have ever seen) and critics the world over Truffaut's 400 Blows launched the Nouvelle Vague and paved the way for some of cinema's most important and influential directors. Twelve-year-old Antoine Doinel has troubles at home and at school. Ignored and neglected by his parents his relationship with his mother is further strained when he discovers that she has taken a secret lover. Added to this his school teachers have written him off as a troublemaker and with luck seemingly never on his side it is Antoine who ends up getting the blame for bad behaviour. Finding refuge only in his love of cinema Antoine soon finds it necessary to break free and discover what the world can offer outside of the confines of his everyday life. This remarkable film features the extraordinary talent of Jean-Pierre Leaud as the rebellious Antoine a character based on Truffaut himself. Antoine Doinel was to make appearances in a number of Truffaut's films (including 'Stolen Kisses' 'Bed and Board' and 'Love on the Run') all of which chart his further adventures into adulthood.

Tony Hancock: The Rebel / The Punch And Judy Man | DVD | (14/04/2003)
from £19.99 | Saving you £-13.38 (-83.70%) | RRP
The Rebel (1961) and The Punch and Judy Man (1963) are the only two feature films made expressly as star vehicles for the great television comic Tony Hancock. The Rebel is by far the more ambitious, being in colour with Parisian locations, a large cast, and not least a supporting role for international star George Sanders. The opening rebellion against office life surely inspired The Fall and Rise of Reginald Perrin, while references follow to Look Back in Anger (1958) and Billy Wilder's The Apartment (1960) and Some Like It Hot (1959). Hancock goes to Paris to follow his artistic muse and as he rises through the art world his naivety is taken for genius, allowing for some very funny moments and spot-on satire, which are just as relevant today as 40 years ago. Filmed in black-and-white in Bognor Regis, The Punch and Judy Man is a more modest yet evocative portrait of life in a small coastal resort. Hancock is the titular beach entertainer who is happy to live from day to day with the affable companionship of John Le Mesurier and Hugh Lloyd. The problem is he's burdened with a socially ambitious wife, Sylvia Syms. Gentle humour comes from Hancock's frustrations as a proto-Basil Fawlty, and the film, packed with familiar British character actors, has an old-fashioned charm. It makes for an enjoyable supporting feature to The Rebel, which is undoubtedly a minor classic. On the DVD: Tony Hancock Double Feature presents both films at 4:3 ratio. The earlier film looks decidedly cropped in several scenes, though the latter survives the reformatting largely unscathed. The Rebel's colour is faded and the image grainy, while The Punch and Judy Man generally has a much stronger black and white image. Even so, there is some flickering and print damage. The music is distorted in The Rebel but the mono sound is fine during The Punch and Judy Man. There are no extras. --Gary S Dalkin
