Product Description

From Amazon.co.uk

Written by Roy Clarke, who was also responsible for Last Of The Summer Wine, Open All Hours exhibited a similarly relaxed attitude towards plot. Ronnie Barker plays Arkwright, the miserly grocer who longs to marry busty Nurse Gladys (Lynda Baron) ("Let's strike while the iron's lukewarm".) David Jason, meanwhile, plays Arkwright's nephew Granville, a romantic who chafes at the confines of shop life and lusts after one "Gloria" (of whom we only ever catch a rear-end view). A series of customers offer little side vignettes, gossipy tittle tattle and tales of their own sexual frustrations. This is a special 90-minute long edition, featuring the pilot. Although it was made in 1983, Open All Hours seems to belong to an earlier era still, in its cosily nostalgic, saucy postcard worldview of everyday Northern folk, a world in which Granville still does his rounds in a cloth cap on a delivery bike. The script creaks with double entendres and how amusing you'll find Arkwright depends on how amusing you find a man with a stammer. Don't expect Steptoe-style pathos or wit, here. Open All Hours is notable, however, in that it constituted Jason's comedy apprenticeship under Barker, standing him in good stead for Only Fools And Horses. --David Stubbs

3.0 out of 5 stars A disappointing collection 20 Sep 2001
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
Although I am a fan of Open All Hours, I have to say that I was quite disappointed with this video. In my opinion these aren't some of the best episodes from the series - the highlight is probably seeing Granville trying to dress to impress with disastrous results!
