Reviews

Four films featuring British actor John Mills. In the comedy 'The Baby and the Battleship' (1956), Able Seaman Knocker White (Richard Attenborough) finds himself literally left holding the baby after a quayside mix-up with the Italian family of his fiancée. Unable to return it before his ship sails, he enlists the help of best mate Puncher Roberts (Mills) to smuggle the child aboard. But babies are surprisingly demanding, and gradually the whole crew is drawn into helping keep it fed and washed - and undiscovered. Even so, the officers above deck start to puzzle over the increasingly strange happenings on board... In 'It's Great to be Young' (1956), Mills stars as Mr Dingle, the popular music teacher in an English school. When the headmaster threatens to close down the school band (partly because of Dingle's fondness of more modern music), the pupils come to his assistance. 'The Gentle Gunman', two Irish brothers (John Mills and Dirk Bogarde) arrive in London to launch an IRA bombing campaign, but one of them begins to have doubts about their mission. In 'The Family Way' (1966) Hywel Bennett and Hayley Mills play newlyweds living in a small, Lancashire village with the groom's dominating father (John Mills). When they are unable to consummate their marriage, the young bride determines it is her fault - neglecting to consider the bullying behaviour of the father towards her husband.

This is a really enjoyable DVD the more so for including the 1950s classic "It's Great to be Young" This film alone is much sought-after and here you have the complete, colour version, just like you saw all those years ago at the cinema. Video and sound are very good. Go on! Wallow in nostalgia and buy it!! Delivery from Amazon is, as usual, ultra-quick and you should have it (well-packaged) in a couple of days.

I bought this box set for just one film, The Baby and the Battleship. It's not available anywhere on it's own, anyway, the quality is terrible. It looks like it was recorded from TV onto VHS and then copied onto DVD with the worse of the worst equipment.
It's worth persevering though because it's an excellent and funny film with a huge and very good cast. Some of the funniest moments include the baby and John le Measurier and If any film was worth remastering it's this one. Good luck with that!

Wonderful collection of John Mills films. One in particular ("Its Great to be Young") has to be seen to be appreciated. Watch out for a young Richard O'Sullivan - brilliant piece of acting.

They show so few of these films on television now, box sets are the only way to see them. Being a huge fan of the late Sir John Mills, what can I say except this box set is suberb. Would recommend to any old film buff watcher!!
