the date in the listing may be amazon's error but it is still a good laugh!
on 20 October 2007
despite amazon's or the distributors error in the dating of the product, this is still a classic piece of silent 'slap stick' comedy created by comic legends.
i first saw this thames television 1979 version on VHS in the late 80's before i ever saw the original with tommy cooper. at only about 8 years of age i loved it. it paid homage to the original with a well recognised cast and shortened length to the original it created a faster pace to the story line and opened up "the plank" to a whole new audience, who un-doubtedly went on to source out the original.
as for "it's your move" another classic piece of slap stick silent comedy as the legend eric sykes and tommy cooper star as haphazard removal men aiding a couple move into their first home.
the humour is reminiscent to laurel & hardy and although the laughter and gags may seem dated in this day and age there is very little out there today that utilises the original form of comedy that is slap-stick.
also check out rhubarb rhubarb and mr H is late. all classic, slient shorts from the same legend that is eric sykes.
