Follow A Star | DVD | (12/11/2001)
from £5.50 | Saving you £-2.99 (-29.90%) | RRP
In The Square Peg Norman Wisdom plays one of a pair of council workmen who, while repairing the road outside an army base, come to illustrate the oxymoronic nature of the phrase "military intelligence". Finding themselves drafted, the workmen are sent to repair the roads ahead of the Allied advance through war-torn Europe by the sergeant they previously embarrassed. Norman finds himself behind the German lines, joins up with French Resistance, gets captured then sets out to rescue British prisoners from a German military HQ by impersonating General Schreiber. Of course Wisdom plays Schreiber too. The Square Peg is the film that introduced Norman Wisdom's famous catch-phrase, "Mr. Grimsdale!". Also here Hattie Jacques gets to sing a remarkable duet with Wisdom, and a pre-Goldfinger Honor Blackman provides the love interest. Following his rising star was just what Norman Wisdom's audience had been doing all through the 1950s and, by 1959, and after six films with director John Paddy Carstairs, it was time for a change. Hence Robert Asher made his directorial debut with Follow a Star. The plot is a comedy version of A Star is Born (1954), with Norman yet again playing a dreaming shop worker, this time aspiring to singing stardom. Vernon Carew (played by Wisdom regular Jerry Desmonde) is the fading singer who schemes to use Wisdom's talent to sustain his own rapidly failing career, while the girl is overlooked starlette June Laverick. Norman is surrounded by a particularly strong supporting cast, with Hattie Jacques returning from The Square Peg (1958), Richard Wattis, John Le Mesurier, Fenella Fielding, Ron Moody and, uncredited, future Bond villain Charles Grey. --Gary S Dalkin

La Notte | DVD | (24/03/2008)
from £22.65 | Saving you £-2.66 (-13.30%) | RRP
One of the masterworks of 1960s cinema La notte (The Night) marked yet another development in the continuous stylistic evolution of its director Michelangelo Antonioni - even as it solidified his reputation as one of the greatest artists of the 20th century. La notte is Antonioni's ""Twilight of the Gods "" but composed in cinematic terms. Examined from a crane-shot it's a sprawling study of Italy's upper middle-class; seen in close-up it's an x-ray of modern man's psychic desolation. Two of the giants of film-acting come together as a married couple living in crisis: Marcello Mastroianni (La dolce vita 8 1/2) and Jeanne Moreau (Jules et Jim Bay of Angels). He is a renowned author and ""public intellectual""; she is ""the wife."" Over the course of one day and the night into which it inevitably bleeds the pair will come to re-examine their emotional bonds and grapple with the question of whether love and communication are even possible in a world built out of profligate idylls and sexual hysteria. Photographed in rapturous black-and-white by the great Gianni di Venanzo (8 1/2 Giulietta degli spiriti) La notte presents the beauty of seduction then asks: ""When did this occur - this seduction of Beauty?"" The Masters of Cinema Series is proud to present Michelangelo Antonioni's haunted odyssey in a new digital restoration uncut for the first time ever on home video.
