Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Terry-Thomas Collection - Comic Icons [DVD] (DVD)
If you like your old British comedies then you really need to have this 6-disc box-set in your collection. For under £20 you get 6 of the funniest films featuring the classic British bounder, Terry Thomas.
I really enjoyed each one and rank them in the following order:
Too Many Crooks (10/10)
The Naked Truth (9/10)
School for Scoundrels (9/10)
Make Mine Mink (8/10)
Brothers in Law (8/10)
Private's Progress (8/10)
note: 'His and Hers' is NOT in this box-set (as stated by the product description when I purchased it).
Each film has Thomas playing his usual upper-class gentleman of disrepute with great support from a number of famous names from that time. These include Ian Carmichael, Peter Sellars, George Cole (Arthur Daley to many) and Alastair Sim, and 'Carry-On' stars Sid James, Kenneth Williams, Hattie Jacques and Bernard Bresslaw. You won't find such an array of British comic-acting talent in any other DVD collection.
Do I recommend it highly? Rather!

Thanks for this most-useful review BUT where is "Lucky Jim". Surely this is also a Carmichael/Thomas standout movie. For the record I'm buying this particular DVD set anyway.
