I think I first saw it in the 70's as a child and must have watched it several times during my formative years, probably at Christmas time if it was on or something. I think as I got older watching it gave me a sense of nostalgia for my youth but also I developed a real respect for Tommy's Musical & Dance talent and showmanship.
In General The film itself follows A young lad called Arthur Kipps (Based on the Novel Kipps by HG Wells) from very humble and meager beginnings through his apprenticeship at a drapers shop where he becomes a man, Arthur fell in love with a girl, Ann, with whom we stayed in contact and they were reunited as young adults, the rest of the story is about the ensuing romance and ultimate marriage of Arthur and Ann.
The film is full of memorable songs and dance sequences and beautiful scenery which paints a lovely period picture.
I won't waffle on about the details of the film as I would like you to discover it or rediscover it for yourself, allow yourself some time, get your favorite snacks, drinks, or even better favorite person and let yourself be entertained.
For some unknown reason there is no UK version of this on DVD, I used to own it on VHS so thank you Amazon for the digital release.
[...]. Thank you.
The seller really needs to make it a lot clearer what language this disc plays in. So, whilst perhaps I should have read the small print more carefully. If the seller wants to do good, honest business, it would hardly hurt them to provide clearer information.
edited to say - I'm scrolling through other reviews and wishing I'd looked at all the 1 star reviews. However, I've noticed some saying you can switch the dubbing to English - I shall certainly have a go, however I'm still not impressed.
After further investigation I've found out how to get it to play in English so I shall change my 1 star rating to 3 stars. I would still like to see clearer explanation so people know exactly what they're getting and perhaps instructions given by the seller as to how to change the language.
Musical version of Wells ;Kipps.
Tommy Steele should be plugged into the national grid!
Fair picture and good sound.if you buy this make sure you have multi region playback on your bluray or dvd player.
