Arthur Bach (Dudley Moore) is a millionaire playboy who spends most of his life drunk, mollycoddled by cynical manservant Hobson (John Gielgud). Threatened with poverty by his grandmother unless he finally marries his socialite fiancée Susan (Jill Eikenberry), Arthur's response is to embark on an affair with penniless, working class waitress Linda (Liza Minnelli). John Gielgud won an Oscar for Best Supporting Oscar, and a sequel, 'Arthur 2', followed in 1988.
When you get lost between the moon and New York City (ahem), chances are you'll find yourself taking another look at this hit comedy starring Oscar-nominated Dudley Moore as the charmingly witty, perpetually drunken millionaire Arthur Bach. Arthur falls in love with a waitress (Liza Minelli) who doesn't care about his money but unfortunately Arthur's stern father wants him to marry a Waspy prima donna. The young lush turns to his wise and loyal butler (Oscar-winner John Gielgud) for assistance and advice. Arthur was a huge hit when released in 1981, as was its Oscar-winning theme song by Christopher Cross. Few remember that the movie was,sadly, the only one ever made by writer-director Steve Gordon, who died less than a year after the film's release. Consistently funny and heartwarming, Arthur was hailed as a tribute to the great romantic comedies of the 1930s. --Jeff ShannonSee all Product Description

The sound is hardly audible even with the volume control turned full on.
Apart from that Arthur is a timeless classic.
Anyone thinking of buying this, please make sure it is not the copy with a red cover - you will be disappointed with the sound quality.
The dvd is region 4
Much of the movie went over my head, and I didn't really understand what was going on - let this be a lesson to you, kids - don't tell your Dad what to do!
Obviously this film was just a minor diversion in the great man's career, but it does say something about the impact this film made on the film watching public that such a sentence would be reported.
"Arthur" is the story of rich, carefree but alcoholic playboy Arthur Bach. With nothing to do all day but cruise around in his chauffeur driven Rolls, shop and drink, he struggles to find a purpose to his life, and more importantly to find a partner in his life to share it with. At the moment he is mothered by his very English butler, Hobson (Gielgut), who tries to keep the romantic Arthur in line with a never ending series of waspish putdowns and acid comments. In order to keep his family fortune though, Arthur's family are most keen he is safely married off to beautiful socialite Susan Johnson (Jill Eikenberry). Unfortunately though, Arthur doesn't love Susan, he loves the streetwise shoplifter he met in downtown New York, Linda Marolla (Liza Minnelli).
Minnelli and Moore play superbly off each other and the glances and expressions they throw to each other (and the camera) are a joy to watch. Gielgut is superb, with the cutting edge of a Stanley knife he steals every scene he appears in. Also well worth watching is Barney Martin as Linda's father, who has a delightfully crumply face as he breaks when he hears the millionaire Arthur won't be marrying his daughter.
At nearly 15 years old this film has remained as fresh and as funny as ever. It's wonderfully innocent, crisp and funny and is extremely highly recommended.
