4.0 out of 5 stars Short on minutes...not on titters!
Essentially a DVD of a 'pilot' episode that first aired on New Years Eve 1975. It was to be made into series at Howerd's behest, but having received only apathetic reviews; subsequent episodes were canned.
With the DVD only being 40 mins long and containing no extras of any note - it may seem a significant amount of cash to stump up for. But if you are a fan of " Up...

3.0 out of 5 stars FRANKIE HOWERD - CASANOVA
Frankie HOWERD was a very good comedian and I thought 'Up Pompeii' was a classic, however his attempts to go one better, as often happens, did not always match up.

Tony HANCOCK was a perfectionist and always worried about being better than his last effort and in the end it caused him to drink himself to death in Australia in 1968.

This HOWERD film is...

4.0 out of 5 stars Short on minutes...not on titters!, 30 Mar. 2013
This review is from: A Touch of the Casanovas [DVD] [1975] (DVD)
Essentially a DVD of a 'pilot' episode that first aired on New Years Eve 1975. It was to be made into series at Howerd's behest, but having received only apathetic reviews; subsequent episodes were canned.
With the DVD only being 40 mins long and containing no extras of any note - it may seem a significant amount of cash to stump up for. But if you are a fan of " Up Pompeii " and " Frankie Howerd: confessions " - then just over half an hour of this should more than make up for half a tenner!

4.0 out of 5 stars Daft, 30 Sept. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: A Touch of the Casanovas [DVD] [1975] (DVD)
Silly, but typical Howerd. Corny, but nonetheless a giggle from start to end. Basically, Up Pompeii in more flambouyant outfits. If you like Howerd, how can you go wrong. Get your titters out as the man would have said, don't expect too much and you won't be disappointed, this is just plain old-fashioned, silly British farce, just the way I like it.

I was hoping that this would be a longer show. What there is though,is an enjoyable romp. Frankie is in top form and there is a good supporting cast,including Michael Caine's first wife.

5.0 out of 5 stars Howerd as Howerd., 3 Feb. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: A Touch of the Casanovas [DVD] [1975] (DVD)
If you do not like Frankie Howerd you will not like this. However if you like Howerd it is all there. Pretty girls, innuendo and classic Howerd timing. It might be old but Howerd is still better than anybody today.

This HOWERD film is reasonable but not all that good compared to some of his other work.
