Product Description

Three comedies starring the master of the lascivious leer, Leslie Phillips. 'Doctor in Trouble' (1970) is the last in the 'Doctor' series of comedies. Troubles befall Dr Burke (Phillips) when he stows away on an ocean liner and poses as a female photographer. Once more the young doctor runs into the authorative figure of a Spratt, but this time it is Sir Lancelot's brother Captain Spratt (Robert Morley). 'Very Important Person' (1962) is an escape comedy set in World War 2, co-starring James Robertson-Justice. Sir Ernest Pease (Robertson-Justice) is a self-important scientist who is sent undercover on a bombing mission to monitor the effectiveness of his latest invention, a new-fangled radar. When the plane is attacked, he parachutes to safety - only to be sent to a POW camp, where he takes on the alias of Lieutenant Farrow. There, the somewhat happy-go-lucky bunch of Brits suspect their ascerbic new fellow prisoner of being a spy, and all sorts of culture clashes and misunderstandings ensue. Finally, in the sex comedy farce 'Don't Just Lie There, Say Something' (1973), based on the hit play by Michael Pertwee, Phillips stars as Sir William Mannering-Brown, a Government minister with a roving eye.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great value set with good commentaries 27 Feb 2005
Three very different films starring the great Leslie Phillips.
My favourite has to be the farce DON'T JUST LIE THERE SAY SOMETHING which also stars Brian Rix and Joanna Lumley.
Leslie's commentaries are great and packed with reminices and anecdotes.
Any fans of classic British comedy will enjoy this set.
Let's hope a second one is released soon.
