4.0 out of 5 stars Funny Bones (or Funny Peculiar?), 29 Nov. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Funny Bones [DVD] [1995] (DVD)
My interest in the film is more than a passing one, I was in it! Only a lowly extra in the Tower Circus sequence maybe but, I did get to meet George Carl, Leslie Caron and Jerry Lewis! The rather confusing plot concerns the son (Oliver Platt) of a famous comedian (Jerry) who re-traces his father's steps and returns to Blackpool in order to acquire comic material. Here he encounters a half-brother (Lee Evans) who has a shady existance. Freddie Davies, excellent as comic and serious character, Oliver Reed also star. Although the film sunk without trace on it's initial release it has attained a cult-status in USA. Peter Chelsom, from nearby St. Annes, directed. Excellent sound/picture quality. 123 minutes running time. Wide-screen format. No extras, rated 15

4.0 out of 5 stars Saddle-up for a Cattle Drive adventure!, 29 Nov. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Gary Grimes, who inexplicably left acting in his twenties, stars as a young lad bored of being a drudge on-the-farm and leaves to join a cattle drive. His hopes to become a he-man cattle-herder are dashed by the hard-bitten riders who treat him as something of a minion, washing and cooking for them. Naturally, by the time of the films climax the tables are turned. Picture quality is excellent. Only available as an import, the disc does play OK with original English soundtrack. An action-filled western with a strong cast.

5.0 out of 5 stars Haunting 1971 movie!, 29 Nov. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Almost a Norman Rockwell life-syle film.This has to be the coming-of-age classic of all time. Young Hermie, played with amazing sensitivity by Gary Grimes, is infatuated with 20-odd year old Dorothy (Jennifer O'Neill). His daffy mates (Jerry Houser and Oliver Conant) tease and kid him but nothing stands in his way to develop the relationship. Directed by Robert Mulligan (who also provides the narration) with an academy-award-winning score by Michel Legrand the film has achieved something of a cult-status. Gary Grimes made only a handful of films, Cahill USA Marshall, The Spikes Gang, Culpepper Cattle Co. among them, before retiring from acting in his early 20s.Excellent sound and picture quality, the disc will only play in DVD players and not recorders or computers, according to the sleeve, though played OK in mine!

Russell, Pee Wee Pee Wee & Fingers LP Capitol T783 EX/VG 1950s with Joe Fingers Carr

3.0 out of 5 stars Fingers meets Pee Wee!, 26 Feb. 2015
It isn't Pee Wee Russell, it's Pee Wee Hunt with Joe 'Fingers' Carr. Pretty predictable stuff, Mr. Dixie meets Mr. Honky Tonk. Pleasant enough light listening with a few unfamiliar tunes and a companion to their later collaboration "Class of 25".

4.0 out of 5 stars Top westerns, nice price., 4 Nov. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Culled from the Universal/Paramount archives, this set features a good cross-section of cowboy stars Randolph Scott, Audie Murphy, Joel McCrea and John Wayne. Picture and sound quality are first-class. The 10 films presented on a 3-DVD set are very watchable and the price - unbelievable! Recommended.

4.0 out of 5 stars Classic Turk!, 4 Nov. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
After a decade with the Lu Watters Yerba Buena Jazz Band trombonist Murphy formed his own group which quickly became the most popular of the San Francisco Style Jazz outfits. This recording made at a live engagement shows his sprightly band in top form. A nice 60 minute cross-section from Mr.Murphy's extensive catalogue of jazz standards, blues, rags and barroom ballads.

4.0 out of 5 stars Vintage George., 4 Nov. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Formby's first 'big' studio production film is obviously dated, made in 1935 but valuable as a travelogue of the Isle of Man. Many decades before film-making on the Manx island became almost common-place. Picture/sound quality very good.

Other reviewers have covered this title very well. Enough to add that Marilyn lights up the screen in every scene. Makes a nice companion to "My week with Marilyn".

The other reviewers said it all! One to add to the other Road pictures. Highlight is probably the opening song "Teamwork".
