the dragon rules,
This review is from: George And The Dragon [DVD] (DVD)
Although I do vaguely remember this being shown on television I was quite young at the time and I couldn't really remember much about it so I was pleasantly surprised by the content. Real vintage comedy with old fashioned values, no swearing, sex or violence. Starring Peggy Mount as Miss Gabrielle Dragon and Sid James as George, an unlikely relationship ensues as Gabrielle goes to work as an housekeeper for the colonel (John Le Mesurier) where George works as his chauffeur, cue lots of comic situations. Miss Dragon is the last in a long line of housekeepers as George has driven them all away with his lustful intent. Miss Dragon is more than a match for George and although not a conventional beauty George developes a secret admiration for her though he would be loathe to admit it.

I was only 3 when this series was first aired but I got a taste for it back in 1987 when there was a programme on Channel Four titled Salute To ATV. There was a short clip from this show and I often wondered if it would ever be shown again. I've just ordered it. I remember Peggy Mount as she lived near my Nan who was on speaking terms with her. Nan always referred to Peggy as Ada Larkins and I never knew who on Earth she was talking about.
