Derek And Clive Get The Horn [DVD] 
Frequently bought together
What other items do customers buy after viewing this item?
Peter Cook and Dudley Moore, as alter egos Derek and Clive, run through a series of groundbreakingly obscene sketches. Filmed live in a recording studio.
Peter Cook and Dudley Moore put on the guises of Derek and Clive one final time in Derek and Clive Get the Horn. The film mostly records the two feuding stars as they are in the studio recording their record. It consists of a number of brilliant comic sketches as well as a wealth of footage of Pete and Dud verbally abusing each other, mostly while drunk. Famously banned by the British Board of Film Censors upon its completion, this film is not only an excellent documentation of one of the funniest comic duos of the 20th century, but is also a fascinating portrait of the excesses and tension between two creative minds who have come to an impasse.

This is the only filmed document (that I'm aware) of their collaboration on this particular comic endeavor - and its priceless. There's been a lot of talk about how they were at odds at this time, and the humour (and their relationship) was strained. Well, I've watched this countless times, and can't help finding the material and chemistry absolutely magic.
They did reunite for the release of this video (which had only been available for years as a bootleg). So all the noise about them disagreeing on the final product is up for debate.
What's not debatable (OK - for some folks it might be) is this is great fun and highly recommeded to anyone who appreciates extremely ribald, imaginitive comedy.
Oh, and some of the compalints about the 16mm film stock and poor lighting, etc... Please. This isn't a George Lucas epic. Its two well-matched, talented comics having some fun in a studio somewhere in London.
Its really quite sad they've both passed.
Although it's different actually seeing them when compared to an audio CD or something similar, it's still just as rewarding and entertaining. I seem to recall paying the list price for it when I purcahsed it, and it still seemed worth it then, so this price of under £6.00 seems a bargain. Will be a classic for the collection, and there's nothing quite like it.
