3.0 out of 5 stars Noel Coward DVD, 2 May 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Noel Coward Collection [DVD] (DVD)
I was a bit disappointed as most of the TV plays were not as good as they could have been and the acting a bit cardboard.
Being a 'Coward' fan I was looking forward to watching it but can say that I only enjoyed half of it.
The radio plays are excellent, and the stage production of 'Present Laughter' with the brilliant 'Donald Sinden' are top drawer so are many of the 'shorts'.
If you are a fan of Noel Coward you will have to buy it as some of the material is only available on this boxed set, but you may only enjoy 50% of it, so be prepared.

I was so disappointed when I saw the release of a Coward collection and then realized that it was comprised of made-for-television productions. I am sorry, but nothing can compare with the original film versions of "Design for Living" (1933; Gary Cooper, Frederic March, Miriam Hopkins and Edward Everett Horton, directed by Ernst Lubitsch, now available in a superb Criterion Collection re-master), and "Blithe Spirit" (1945; Rex Harrison, Constance Cummings and Margaret Rutherford, directed by David Lean).

How about 'Mr and Mrs Edgehill'? Was that one worthwhile?
