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

This Sporting Life | DVD | (31/01/2000)
from £21.28 | Saving you £-15.29 (-255.30%) | RRP
Prolific British filmmaker Lindsay Anderson weaves this small, evocative tale of young life at the crossroads in early 1960s Northern England. A rough, sullen young man (Richard Harris) working in the local coal mines begins to make a name for himself as a star rugby player, but even as he begins to fall in love he cannot escape the harsh realities of the bleak life around him. The rugby sequences in the film are striking, but no more so than the depiction of downtrodden people living in the shadow of industry and corruption that too often crushes their spirit. Harris in one of his first roles, is remarkably effective as an unlikeable but sympathetic figure trying against hope to savour the small joys life has to offer, and the film also features the debut of renowned actress Glenda Jackson. One of a series of working-class, character-driven British imports, This Sporting Life is one of the best on the field. --Robert Lane
Prokofiev - Cinderella | DVD | (24/09/2003)
from £25.40 | Saving you £2.59 (9.30%) | RRP
Perrault's timeless fairy tale of the mistreated waif turned princess has inspired a number of composers and choreographers since its first incarnation as a major ballet by Petipa in 1893. But none has gained the popularity of the version set by Frederick Aston for Sadler's Wells Royal ballet in 1948. It was the first full-length ballet devised by a British choreographer.Though the role of Cinderella was danced by Moira Shearer at the premier it soon became a signature piece for Margot Fonteyn and a mainstay of the company's repertoire. In addition to providing the choreography Ashton also gave himself a plum role as one of the Ugly Sisters and appears on this video in tandem with Kenneth MacMillan another celebrated British choreographer en travesti.

Cliff Richard DVD Collection - The Young Ones / Summer Holiday / Wonderful Life | DVD | (05/08/2002)
from £15.99 | Saving you £-12.00 (-66.70%) | RRP
The three nostalgic British musicals in the Cliff Richard DVD Collection are a good reminder that, thanks to a few short years in the 1960s, Sir Cliff can legitimately include "film star" on his already exceptional show business CV. The Young Ones (1961), Summer Holiday (1963) and Wonderful Life (1964) would make tame fare for a teen audience today, but they retain a polished and honest charm which might surprise the sharpest of cynics. First and foremost, of course, they were Cliff Richard vehicles: designed to showcase his all-round talents and capitalise on his first, heady wave of pop chart success. They are also unashamed homages to the heyday of the MGM B-musical with familiar themes: let's put on a show/save the youth club/make a film. But with up-and-coming directors Sidney Furie and Peter Yates making imaginative and sophisticated use of wide-angle camera work and fresh, snappy choreography by Herbert Ross and Gillian Lynne, they also have plenty of assets other than Cliff's wholesome appeal. There are some fine set pieces and surreal flashes, notably the history of cinema in Wonderful Life and the extraordinary mime sequence in Summer Holiday. They also tap into the very British energy of a group of young actors and dancers including Una Stubbs, Susan Hampshire, Melvyn Hayes and Richard O'Sullivan, as well as Cliff's band at the time, The Shadows. For sheer verve, they deserve to be seen on their own merits. On the DVD: The Cliff Richard DVD Collection has been pristinely restored; the colours and clarity, not to mention the use of Cinemascope, leap off the screen (aspect ratio 2.35:1). The mono soundtrack recreates the authentic bandbox sound of the 1960s. Aside from theatrical trailers, the most notable extras are directors' commentaries: actually Furie and Yates in occasionally long-winded conversation with film and music writers. Both men give fascinating insight into the film-making climate in Britain in the early 1960s.--Piers Ford

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
The Good, The Bad And The Ugly - Limited Edition Steelbook | Blu Ray | (26/05/2014)
from £22.45 | Saving you £-0.46 (-2.10%) | RRP
This two-disc Special Edition presents the restored, extended English-language version of Leone's The Good, the Bad and the Ugly, now clocking in at almost three hours (actually 171 minutes on this Region 2 DVD as a result of the faster frames-per-second ratio of the PAL format). It includes some 14 minutes of previously cut scenes, with both Clint Eastwood and Eli Wallach returning to the editing suite in 2003 to add their voices to scenes that had never before been dubbed into English (Wallach's voice is noticeably that of a much older man in these additional sequences). The extra material contains nothing of vital importance, but it's good to have the movie returned to pretty much the way Leone originally wanted it. The anamorphic widescreen picture is now also accompanied by a handsome Dolby 5.1 soundtrack, making this the most complete and satisfactory version so far released. Film historian Richard Schickel provides an authoritative and engaging commentary on Disc 1. On the second disc there are featurettes on Leone's West (20 mins), The Leone Style (24 mins), Reconstructing The Good, the Bad and the Ugly (11 mins) and a documentary about the historical background of the Sibley campaign, The Man Who Lost the Civil War (15 mins). In addition, there's a two-part appreciation of composer Ennio Morricone, Il Maestro, by film-music expert John Burlinghame. Tuco's extended torture scene can be found here, along with a reconstruction of the fragmentary "Socorro Sequence". In short, exemplary bonus features that will satisfy every Leone aficionado. --Mark Walker

Night Passage | DVD | (23/08/2004)
from £3.99 | Saving you £-15.01 (-300.80%) | RRP
Thanks to ultracrisp Technirama photography of great mountainside and river gorge locations in Colorado, Night Passage is often terrific to look at; you can almost feel the autumn sun and brisk air. This should have been another classic Western pairing James Stewart with director Anthony Mann. But after choosing the locations, cast, and crew, and directing the precredit sequence, Mann abruptly resigned. He found Borden Chase's screenplay an "incoherent" rehash of relationships and setups from their previous films, nor was he encouraged by Stewart's determination to play the accordion and sing. Stewart's an ex-railroad cop who became a pariah by letting a prisoner--Audie Murphy's "The Utica Kid"--escape. The two cross paths again in a ghost town where Dan Duryea, doing a zany version of his loony outlaw from Winchester '73, has holed up with his gang. Replacement director James Neilson, a newcomer destined for bland Disney servitude, fosters a lot of flatfooted standing-around.
