2.0 out of 5 stars Poor gift horse, 29 July 2012

This review is from: Gift Horse [DVD] [1952] (DVD)
I have to say that I was extremely disappointed with this dvd despite the good cast line up, I found that not only was the action so very slow, but the story line became lost as well. There were scenes to where you knew this was set in a studio or alike as when the doors where shut the whole wall wobbled!
All in all not what I expected, don't waste your money!

2.0 out of 5 stars Quite disapointed, 8 May 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Having obtained over the years quite a good collection of Post Office Film Unit video's and alike, I was disapointed with this particular episode of 'We live in two worlds' I did expect more documentries rather than flashing lights.
I tended to skip a lot of tracks, really the two discs were a waste of money!

5.0 out of 5 stars Hastings Looking Back To The Future, A tribute to Sidney Little, 20 Jan 2012
Having had to purchase the book in my own town as Amazon failed to stock this book, I found that the contents were very full and the author may be unknown before this publication will certainly get a go ahead approach with a book like this one. I for one just couldn't put it down, as there is so much to learn from all the schemes he built for Hastings, let alone all his fantastic visions he had, he was certainly well ahead of his time. A well composed and writen book, well done Richard Pollard. Lets just hope that another comes out before not too long as this one was really great. Priced in the shops at 14.99 well worth every penny.

Despite the fact that these were very good, the last 3 episodes weren't that brilliant as the previous ones. This was probably due to a public outcry when the series finished on series 5, and to be no more, but had to quickly get down and write a conclusion episode/s. I have been a fanaitic follower of the series and all the earlier ones were faultless, but the last ones were not quite up to the mark for my liking..........But, you make your own mind up!
These are still worth the money for a good evening viewing (or two)! If you are a fan of Foyle's War you really can't lose!

This is an early film just before the Carry On's started.There is quite a good line up of stars that were to make the series of Carry On's, but the action is quite slow in this movie. There are a couple of scenes where the lighting rigging used on the set are shown in their full glory and never been edited out! But apart from that, if you like the old black & white comedy's you'll just love this one too. Well worth the money, and you can sit in front the fire when it's raining and blowing outside and have a good laugh at British comedy at its best.
They don't make them like this any more, is that good or bad?
