Format: DVD
At last I can update from my grotty old Rank Library VHS.

This film is hilarious. It works on so many levels that even after all these years I spotted a couple of gags I'd not noticed before.

It's not a silent comedy so much as a comedy without dialogue, and as such it transcends the barriers that mere spoken words can put up. It needs to be seen to be appreciated (looking at Ronnie Barker's crumbling, demented General Futtock reminds me that round about this time he had done "Hark at Barker" on TV as the crumbling and demented Lord Rustless who shares a few details with Futtock!) so I won't try and convey in words what Ronnie Barker and his distinguished colleagues do in seconds with their excellently timed visuals. And make no mistake, we have a cast of veterans here...(is the old artist played by the same Roger Livesey that we saw as "Colonel Blimp" and in "A matter of Life and Death"?). Not comedians, but serious actors, for comedy is a serious business when done to perfection.

The extras aren't up to much; just a commentary by the director, Bob Kellett... but there is a fact related there that I have no qualms about sharing since it surprised me; the house in the film is none other than W S Gilberts house, Grims Dyke! and you should hear how little they hired it for.....

Format: DVD
The format of Futtocks End is very well described in the other reviews here, and I would only add that this piece, though dated, has retained it's charm and the ability to entertain through the sheer strength of the comic timing of Horden, Barker et al. But Ronnie Barker made two other dialogue-free short films in what could be described as a series. To have put "The Picnic" and "A Day Out" on the dvd would have given a total running time of just over two hours and made a very attractive package. What we actually get here is a missed opportunity and it has resulted in a poor value-for-money product.

If like me you are a fan of the great Ronnie Barker you will like this 48 minute short. If you are a general fan of British comedy, perhaps you won't. This is a 48 minute SILENT feature, so you will probably only watch it once or twice. Still, as a Barker fanatic it is nice to have it in my collection.

This is an old film, sound effects, background music and grunts. Still extremely funny, which I didn't expect since I last saw it when I was a child. With the added bonus that now I could understand what the lecherous butler was looking at! What a shame we have to age!

Great film, a real classic!

Hardly a silent movie, the background music is full of grunts and mumbo jumbo talking...the story seems to be about Futtock's relatives coming down for a weekend visit...plus an innocent Japanese tourist who makes the mistake of climbing into the car ferrying the guests to Futtock mansion. The rest of this intriguing story is very Benny Hill, with scantily clad women and carryings on a plenty. Highly recommended.

Funny with a hint of 'smut', Typical of Ronnie Barker. Look for a book called 'Sauce' by Ronnie which shows his sense of humour.

The packaging said Futtucks end but the film itself is 'The 5th Beatle'. I had bought this as a present for an elderly relative so it was a bit awkward.
