YOU NEVER CAN TELL,
This review is from: The George Bernard Shaw Collection: 6 Disc Box Set (Arms and the Man/The Man of Destiny/The Devil's Disciple/Mrs Warren's Profession/Pygmalion/Heartbreak House/The Millionairess/The Apple Cart) [DVD] (DVD)
I wouldn't recommend this title, or this production. It is a very windy dated piece which has not travelled well. The distinguished cast does its best, but this is a stagebound, rather arch and very mannered version of the a play which was always one of Shaw's weakest inthe first place. It is, to be honest, quite boring, and whilst a student of Shaw might find it worth the effort, a viewer expecting only witty entertainment may well be, as I was, disappointed.

You Never Can Tell is not one of the titles listed on teh boxed set, so what is the relevance of this review?

This review tells us nothing about the content of the boxset. I would like to know what the reviewer thought of all the plays, instead of complaining about one play which apparently is not listed in this set. The reviewer says this is a distinguished cast, but who are they?
How can someone write a review that never refers to the play they are reviewing?

Badger O Stripey One says:
It seems this is an eight-disc, ten titles set and 'You Never Can Tell' is included.
Refer to Anne Heriksen's review where she gives 5* for the set (two years after you both wrote your comments).
This is shown on the box, though you need to enlarge the picture.
