5.0 out of 5 stars ITV60 Box Set of 12 Discs, 10 Jun. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: ITV 60 [DVD] (DVD)
A worthwhile set of 12 discs. Should have been a Blu Ray alternative. The packaging leaves a lot to be desired as the discs were off and one marked deeply. There are many shows of great memory to me and some episodes that have not been on any discs before. Some of the 70s studio color video leaves a lot to be desired but is the best there is. Pity so much(and that goes for the BBC archive too) is lost now back in the earlier days, an archive that would produce money with all the services to be filled with programming on cable and satellite services.They were too short-sighted or run by managers who were there as a way of getting a wage and no interest in the industry and its future. Recommended.

This Week Of Grace/She Shall Have Music [DVD]
Dvd ~ Gracie Fields
Price: £13.68

5.0 out of 5 stars Rare British Musicals from the 1930s, 13 May 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have waited on She Shall Have Music(Jack Hylton & His Orchestra) for a long time on DVD but did have an old VHS taken from TV in UK. I have read that there were scenes taken out in USA for censorship reasons and the VHS did have a fake The End on it. I wrote to Renown about this before release but, as is usual with them these days, the declined to answer. Hylton became an agent in the coming years as others did when the age of the Dance Bands diminished.

This Week of Grace in the final 1930s Gracie Fields film to go on DVD as it was 'lost' until now with no reason as to where it had been found and it looks good, but then I like Gracie in film and records. There has been a very scratchy trailer for this film on You Tube, something one does not find for British films prior to 1950 often-they seem to have mostly been lost.

5.0 out of 5 stars I must say she is a delight and the best looker in the film, 31 Mar. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This film is an adult X film set in the beginning of WW2 in Berlin. The Nazis turn a bunch of women into prostitutes linked to a night club to spy on the tongues of unsuspecting other Nazis. This was made by Tinto Brass in Italy, a producer/director noted for sex films. This is the extended cut and that footage added that had no English soundtrack dubbing loops has English subtitles added to the screen at those times, otherwise an Italian and default English tracks are available. The person with the largest, by far, is the then young English runaway, Teresa Ann Savoy. I must say she is a delight and the best looker in the film. Savoy got a major part in Caligula when Maria Schneider left the production due to not wanting to do nude scence. Savoy seems to have in Italy with a family and no longer is in films. The film runs 133mins and it plenty gory in parts. In case you are wondering there appears to be only one quick intimate frontal flash of Savoy but there is an abundance of the rest of her body thru'out. Male nudity abounds.

4.0 out of 5 stars Tommy Handley, It's That Man Again, 31 Mar. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: It's That Man Again [DVD] (DVD)
This 1940s British film is based on the radio show ITMA-It's That Man Again starring Tommy Handley. The radio show ran from 1939-1949 and stopped instantly when Handley died suddenly in 1949. He was living in a flat over shops in Pared Street/Paddington-London. The show and film gave to popular phrases like "Can I Do You Now, Sir?" and "Funf Speaking:". A bit jumbled but nevertheless there is some good comedy, musical numbers and dances in this film. Handley made another at this period, Time Flies, which uses a lamp as a time machine back to The Virgin Queens era ending them in prison before getting themjselves back to 1940s.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Camels Are Coming & Me and Marlborough., 31 Mar. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A couple of fun comedies with some songs: The Camels are Coming(Jack Hulbert) & Me & Marlborough(Cicely Courtneidge). The couple were husband and wife and often performed together on stage and screen.Cicely was the first Mum in Series 1 of On the Buses. The teams greatest era for films was the 1930s but they continued to perform most of their lives. Jack was an avid cricket fan as his autobiography attests. Pleasant comedies worth a look.

I just received this volume and look forward to close reading. Well bound this is a big book and takes us on a journey thru MGM operations in UK. MGM started with a handful of films in UK just before the war and returned in 1944 when they purchased a film studio property that had been used to make Halifax bombers in WW2 and been bombed as a result. Early in 1971q, when I was working in London for Decca Records, MGM-Elstree liquidated the chattels of the studios and moved out of direct film production in UK.

The George Formby Film Collection [DVD] [2009]

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
These 7 films were the post Ealing series of George Formby films made for the British office of Columbia pictures and all produced & directed by French director, Marcel Varnel. They go from 1940-1946 and the last, George in Civvy Street, the last feature George ever made although he did do a few TV variety appearances in the 1950s before his untimely, sudden, death. The prints are very good to excellent and two are missing the Columbia trademark at the opening, but then some of the ATP/Ealing titles have been doctored too. Songs are sung in these films and in one he actually has a guitar and not his famous UK. I assume he is playing it. The films were made at three studios rented for the purpose and two refer to Gainsborough Studios in Islington/London as Gainsboro' Studios. I enjoy them all and I think George in Civvy Street is my favourite. The main song as the guys come home to London after the war in a large ship is very rousing and tuneful. Ronald Shiner appears in most of these films.

Columbia UK also made two films with Forces Sweetheart Vera Lynn which were released on DVD. Unfortunately one came from a print found in USA and was retitled and, typically at the time, chopped by about 10mins.
