Product Description

Long Lost Comedy Classics is a collection of films from a golden age of British Cinema, remembered for timeless stars and some unique movies that have stood the test of time. So why not take a trip down memory lane and see how cinema used to be? The Love Match (1955) (Dir. David Paltenghi): After being arrested for assaulting a football referee, desperate train driver Bill raids the railwaymen's holiday fund to cover his fine. Now he has to get the money back by hook or by crook! Make Me An Offer (1955) (Dir. Cyril Frankel): A struggling antiques dealer finds the answer to his financial problems when he stumbles across a precious vase - but needs to pull out every trick in the book to win his prize! Orders Are Orders (1954) (Dir. David Paltenghi): A sleepy army barracks is about to be overrun by a film company shooting a science fiction caper - much to the annoyance of the Divisional Commander who decides to make a surprise inspection. Time Gentlemen Please (1952) (Dir. Lewis Gilbert): The PM is planning a celebration visit to the model village of Little Hayhoe. However, local lay-about Dan Dance refuses to work, so he's shipped off to the local almshouse where he awaits an uncertain, yet very funny future. John And Julie (1955) (Dir. William Fairchild): This timeless film records the adventures of two young children who runaway to watch the coronation of Queen Elizabeth II 1953, meeting various English eccentrics along the way. Miss Robin Hood (1952) (Dir. John Guillermin): A newspaper columnist conspires with an elderly fan to steal a secret whiskey formula from a wealthy distiller. However, it's not long before Scotland Yard is on the case!

4.0 out of 5 stars Long lost comedy classics 16 Oct 2010
I wish I'd read the reviews first. I bought the fist volume and watched it with my father. He (and I) thoroughly enjoyed these lovely comedies. So much so that I purchased the second volume for him for Christmas. I am very disappointed that there are duplicate copies in both sets. What a daft idea. However, which ever set you purchase you'll have awonderful time watching these harmless comedies which hark back to a time when there were no profanities needed to raise a laugh.

Took this pack on holiday with us in case we needed some entertainment! We all loved them - even the kids and laughed our socks off! Nice to see an innocent film again!

4.0 out of 5 stars COMEDY CLASSICS? 27 Jan 2009
Hardly Classics but anyone collecting English comedy films as I am, will definitly want these in their collection.

This is a bit of a letdown if you have bought volume one, as of the 4 films listed,two of the titles "Miss Robin Hood" and "Time Gentlemen Please" are listed in both sets.
Surely it would have been better to make one box of 8 titles or 2 sets of 4?. Bad marketing folks, back to the drawing board

4.0 out of 5 stars Comedy Classics DVD 5 Feb 2011
Verified Purchase
I bought this as a Christmas gift for my father in law who was delighted. He can remember the characters in the sketches from his youth and it's given him a few laughs over the Christmas period. Can recommend, but you need to be "of a certain age" to appreciate!
