An excellent value small collection, of some interesting and different films. There is quite a contrast between the films and this makes this collection even better value.
Extremely noteworthy is James Mason's walk around London, before so much of what remained after the war was destroyed, only to be replaced by ghastly, impersonal and characterless concrete structures. However, all is not "a bed of roses" in London Town; he interviews the less well-off, visits busy markets and even witnesses the utter sadness of the alcoholics, often to be seen drinking Methylated Spirits! It is a fascinating walk through history, with bleak views as well as interesting, hidden places. Very atmospheric and excellently brought to life by James Mason, who brings his own persona into this charming film, making it just that much more interesting.
I would have to do a review of each of the films in turn, in order not to turn you away from my brief text. Suffice it to say that I am not disappointed with any of the films in this set and consider them all to be noteworthy in their own right!
