5.0 out of 5 stars PLAY IT COOL., 27 Mar 2014
Fun 1960s Billy Fury Musical. Anglo Amalgamated's Play it Cool still has it's charm today. Lovely to see Helen Shapiro singing a couple of numbers. The widescreen B&W photography comes across sharp & good sound quality. Network DVD are doing a good job in releasing these vintage films. Still waiting for Billy Fury's other musical (I've Gotta Horse) to be released.

2.0 out of 5 stars PETTICOAT PIRATES., 27 Mar 2014
Very disappointed with the picture quality. The focus was very soft throughout the film plus it was non anamorphic, which ment enlarging the picture to fill a widescreen television. Sound quality OK. Such a shame this film was not restored.
Edgar Wallace Mysteries - Volume 5 [DVD] [1963] <b>DVD</b> ~ Patrick Magee
5.0 out of 5 stars Edgar Wallace., 19 Feb 2014
I now own all the Edgar Wallace DVD sets. I remember fondly screening these wonderful B movies way back in the 60s as a cinema projectionist at the once lovely art deco Embassy Cinema in Tenterden Kent. The Merton Park 2nd features were famous for their Anglo Amalgamated start up logos together with the catchy theme music. The restored BW picture quality is stunning but the sound is slightly toppy which varies from film to film. The extras include a nice little package of 2nd features (Also from the Anglo/Warner Pathe stable) The set takes pride in my DVD collection. Well done Network.
