VCI Entertainment presents "BRITISH CINEMA: RENOWN PICTURES COMEDY COLLECTION" --- (1952-1956) (457 mins/B&W) (Dolby digitally remastered) --- If you're into British comedy films during the 1950s --- Then you've come to right place, none of these are comedy classics but very funny if you're ready for a room full of laughter --- There is something about British humor which can be very infectious.

The video quality is good to very good, they're not Blu-ray status but entertaining --- One can never say VCI copies are always pristine, but for the price and quantity of flicks in this package they are near the top of the label charts for a good value.

DISC ONE
Where There's a Will (March 1955) (79 min/B&W)

Down Among the Z Men (October 1952)) (68 min/B&W)

Love in Pawn (1953) (81 min/B&W)

DISC TWO
Those People Next Door (1953) (77 min/B&W)

No Smoking (1955) (72 min/B&W)

Not So Dusty (1956) (80 min/B&W)

BONUS FEATURES:
1. Trailers
2. British Promo

VCI was named in Variety and Hollywood Reporter as the first company to produce and release motion pictures directly to the home marketplace --- VCI are experts in releasing long forgotten films and treasures to the collector --- Hats off and thanks to Robert Blair and his staff at VCI Entertainment --- looking forward to more British Cinema Collections.

Total Time: 457 mins on DVD ~ VCI Home Video 8559 ~ (8/25/2009)

You probably have to be a fan of 1950s British comedy to really enjoy this collection. Very much in the vein of the "Comedy Classics" series which are also available. Enjoyable wet Sunday afternoon viewing, but don't expect the standard of Ealing comedies. Spotting all the old faces who turn up in comedy films is great fun(how many films was Sam Kydd been in?).
I agree with the previous reviewer that the picture quality is surprising good.
Good collection at a good price

Not the best of British wit 10 Sep 2014
By Brian - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
This collection of light, chatty post-WWII comedies from Renown Pictures likely won't add much to your appreciation of British wit, but will pass the time agreeably with a few standout performances (Peter Sellers in 'Z Men,' in particular) and occasionally inspired silliness. For better examples of Anglo humor-- via superior writing and directing-- invest in the Ealing, Guinness and Sellers sets, all by Anchor Bay. VCI's prints are in universally good shape; three films on each of two single-sided discs. Content combined rates about 2 1/2 stars, presentation (no substantive extras) 3 1/2.
