Esther Williams Collection 2: Tcm Spotlight [DVD] &hellip <b>DVD</b> ~ Van Johnson

This is a superb collection of Esther Williams classics.

Although sold as a Region 1 boxed set, I found that five of the six discs of my copy (and I assume all other copies) are Region 0, and will play perfectly on an ordinary UK (or other European) DVD player. The sole Region 1 disc in the set is "Easy to Love", which is a shame as the Busby Berkeley choreographed water skiing sequence that forms the climax is unmissable. Fortunately, the film is available elsewhere as a Region 2 disc.

I expect that Amazon will mix this up with the other reviews of 'Heartland', and would like to make it clear that I'm reviewing the German edition with a bonus DVD.

Client belong amongst my all time top six favourite bands. (Top six, that is, including duos.) To give a measure of my taste, the other five are (in no particular order) Goldfrapp, Uh Huh Her, Shampoo, Daphne & Celeste and Girls Aloud. Of these six favourites, Client were the bleakest, but exquisitely enjoyable for all of that. I would give five stars to each of Client's albums, and count myself extremely fortunate that I managed to see them live several times before Kate and Sarah went their separate ways… Read more
