Reviews

Directed by Sir Peter Hall and featuring cool tunes by Johnny Dankworth, this sexy, mischievous early '70s crime caper stars the always-watchable Stanley Baker as a bank manager who teams up with a glamorous, aristocratic couple (David Warner and Ursula Andress) to pull off the ultimate inside job. Perfect Friday is featured here in a brand-new High Definition transfer from original film elements in its as-exhibited theatrical aspect ratio on both Blu-ray and DVD..

Lord Nicholas Dorset and his beautiful wife Britt live entirely beyond their means, while their timid bank manager Mr Graham has long envied his customers' wealth. Having devised an apparently foolproof plan to rob his own bank, Mr Graham decides that Nicholas and Britt's desperate financial situation makes them his ideal accomplices...

I love this film and have been waiting years to see it again, so the DVD / Blu Ray double release is much appreciated.

A bank heist caper is great to start with and its snapshot of London in 1970 makes it even better. The slightly camp delivery of a smart and ironic plot is just right and everyone gets into the spirit of it.

David Warner's performance as a louche aristocrat is, in particular, a joy to behold and if you accept the Earl & Lady Dorset's invitation to cocktails, I feel sure you won't be disappointed!

This fun, sexy, quirky heist film starring Ursula Andress, Stanley Baker and David Warner received very limited distribution upon it's original U.S. release in 1970. It has NEVER been available here until now. If you're into "bank caper" movies, this one is highly recommended recommended. For me, the only down-side to the film is JOHN DANKWORTH's exceedingly irritating score (which seems to be playing every 5 seconds). But be warned it's an R2 REGION disc and (for us here in the U.S.), a REGION FREE player is necessary.

A reasonable to good transfer to blu-ray, except for the sound which is mono. Comes in a slimline double DVD case. Reasonable value at £8.75 but wouldn't have been so at the original release price.

Lots of classic cars as you'd expect from the 1970 film including the white Sunbeam Alpine on wire spoked wheels that 'Britt' drives. Be interested to know if this was the same car used in 'Get Carter'.

When I pre-ordered this film, it was listed only as a dvd. I was very happily surprised when it arrived this morning to discover that it was blu-ray/dvd combo pack. I see that Amazon has amended their listing to reflect this. For some reason this is packaged in a double dvd case rather than a blu-ray case which may add to the confusion of the casual shopper.

What with a charming Femme Fatale and multiple double crossing you have to concentrate to follow this film, it has the most enjoyable scenery as well, throughout this film Ursula Andress succeeds in making sure she removes her cloths as often as she possible can, but then again the rewards for her for doing this are worth while. Stanley Baker and David Warner don,t stand a chance! I first saw this film in 2006 on BBC 1 and have had to wait until now for Amazon to supply me with this Blu-Ray copy which is very good, all be it though, it is mostly in pastel shades of :PINK:!.

Perfect Friday was a fav when I was growing up - caught on a Wednesday night or Sunday late time slot on TV and rarely shown. A fan of the work of Stanley Baker and his off beat self produced crime films, this is a light hearted welcome change with David Warner sinister and silly and Ursula Andress displaying sultry comic timing before she more or less retired from the screen world. The film is dated, of course, and played with tongue firmly in cheek, as was the late 60's style - but still this is a little gem and brings back very fond memories of TV watching before multiple channels and choices... It is the three leads that make the story work with their wonderful screen presence all under the direction of Peter Hall.

The BD transfer is very good with only a few minor marks here and there that won't spoil your enjoyment.

This British movie features the three leads, Ursula Andress, Stanley Baker and David Warner and the film centres on this trio whilst they plan to steal a large sum of money from a bank vault. The money is stored in a bank where Baker's character Mr Graham is an assistant manager and he cleverly comes up with a fool proof plan to nick the cash. However he needs to involve two other people in his scheme and recruits Britt (Andress) and Lord Nicholas Dorset (Warner) to help him carry it out. When you first see Lord Dorset he is as camp as a row of tents but his character seems to "straighten up" as the movie progresses!

The film is mostly shot on location in London and a lot of the outdoor shots will be familiar to location spotters in the capital.

This movie is light hearted in tone and it feels very "60ish". A crime movie and there are no shooters, car chases or violence! The plot has lots of twists and turns and I thoroughly enjoyed it. Baker is nothing like the hard man he plays in 'The Last Grenade' and 'Innocent Bystanders', he plays the scheming mastermind with aplomb. David Warner is really good as his Lordship and Andress (not dubbed for a change) is OK but her good looks were her best asset! Her nude scenes are very revealing, no stunt double used in this movie for its star!

The rest of the cast hardly get two dozen lines between them and is it really does concentrate on the interaction between the three lead actors. Johnny Briggs (AKA Corrie's Mike Baldwin) and Garfield Morgan (Frank Haskins in The Sweeney) appear in minor roles.

Yet another Stanley Baker movie from the early 70s that I really do recommend for film fans to take a look at.
