Corbett and featuring songs from Joe and his Bruvvers Marty Wilde Susan Maughan and Freddie and the Dreamers What a Crazy World is presented here in a brand-new transfer from the original film elements in its as-exhibited theatrical aspect ratio. Against the background of London's East End is set the story of Alf Hitchins an unemployed lad whose life revolves around dance halls amusements arcades and cafés - any place to escape from the family home where his father mother and sister are deeply preoccupied with dog racing bingo and courting respectively. Alf's cynical but cheerful acceptance of life expresses itself in the song he casually composes one night - and the results take everyone by surprise! Special Features: Image Gallery

At the moment Fuchs discovered the Queen's perfectly preserved, still bleeding, body, Margaret's mother died giving birth to her. When a certain celestial conjunction is complete, and three key artefacts are assembled by Tera's corpse, the evil sorceress will be reborn EXTRAS: NEW FEATURETTE - The Pharaoh's Curse: Inside Blood From the Mummy's Tomb ORIGINAL TRAILER
