Product Description

Product Description

A delightful tale of a housemaid who spends her days cleaning the homes of the well-to-do. Mrs. Harris or arris as pronounced in her native cockney (Angela Lansbury) epitomises her generation of honest, working-class Brits. She knows her place, though that never stops her from speaking her mind or dreaming of luxuries. Admiring a beautiful Dior gown in her employer s closet, Mrs. arris is determined to buy one of her own. Working day and night, she finally saves enough to go to Paris and visit the House of Dior, but learns that buying an original couture creation is harder than simply having the cash. After hesitation, Dior s head saleswoman Madame Colbert (Dame Diana Rigg) escorts her in and seats her next to the Marquis de Chassagne (Omar Sharif), a count who is quite taken by this friendly English woman. When her dream passes before her eyes on the beautiful store model Natasha, Mrs. arris orders the same gown for herself, but there is talk that the Dior name will be tarnished if Mrs. arris wears the exclusive design. However the sweet Mrs. arris has made many friends in Paris and all are intent on making sure her dream comes true.

Although my preferred film genre is actually Asian horror, I just love this film. I saw it on TV a few years ago and was really pleased to see it out on DVD. Quaint old films really are a lovely way to while away a spare afternoon and although this was actually made in 1992 it really does have the feel of an older movie which was the intention. It's not sophisticated, it doesn't try to be clever, it's just a good old-fashioned tear-jerker. Just watch it when you want a little escapism!

A widowed london charwoman becomes enchanted by the paris gowns of one of her wealthy employers. She dreams of owning one of her very own and this is the story of her quest to fulfill her dream. On the way she scrimps and saves,endures sacrifice, makes unexpected friends, prejudice and enemies, does good deeds, and encounters a little romance too. It's a heartwarming story of how hard work can help you achieve your dreams, whatever they might be, and good deeds rebound. I'm glad to see it on DVD. Highly recommended.

I purchased this from amazon.co.uk because this DVD is not available in the US, and was delighted to find that though it is specified as Region 2 on the website, in fact the DVD is marked region free (and so is the case), so anyone from any region can enjoy this lovely dvd, even without a region free dvd player.

When a cockney charwoman (Angela Lansbury) sees one of her employer's Dior gowns, she becomes determined to own one herself and to that end, saves her money to fulfill her dream of going to Paris and buying a Dior evening gown. Directed by Anthony Shaw (Lansbury's son) and based on the novel by Paul Gallico (who wrote a series of novels featuring the character of Mrs. Harris), this is a perfectly charming low-keyed adult fairy tale. Set in the mid 1950s, the film deviates from the Gallico novel in order to give it a happier, if more conventional, ending. The detail of the period is quite good and, of course, Lansbury is wonderful. The romantic subplot between a top Dior model (Tamara Gorski) and an accountant (Lothaire Bluteau, BENT) in the house of Dior is weak, much more interesting is the elegant widow (Diana Rigg) who supervises the Dior fashion house. With Omar Sharif as a French government official who befriends Lansbury and Lila Kaye as Lansbury's charwoman neighbor.

The Pegasus DVD (via Great Britan) is a full screen (it was made for television) transfer and while, perhaps, a bit on the soft side, nonetheless a decent transfer.

this film is one of the best family feelgood movies of its time,
featuring the highly under rated angela lansbury,& omar sharif,and not forgetting the illustrious diana rigg [dame]
a simple story of the pride of the british washerwoman housekeeper
striving to fulfill her dreams,and the gathering of friends new&old
i personaly enjoy watching this film,and dont think that
it matters what generation that you are from i would put this up there with national velvet,
which ironically enough has angela lansbury in it as well, well worth having in your collection,william

Thoroughly enjoyable old-fashioned style film about a lowly London charwoman (Angela Lansbury), who dreams of owning her own Dior dress. Having scrimped and saved, she travels to Paris where an assortment of people, including delightful Diana Rigg and an elegant Marquis, Omar Sharif, in one of his best latter-day performances, see to it that Mrs 'Arris dream does come true despite some obstacles. Beautifully cast and performed, and utterly charming. Originally made for television. Acceptable picture quality for this release by Pegasus.

This is a nice movie with a good plot. Nice to have a movie where I don't have to worry about language or nudity so the young people in my family can also watch. I wish they would have made Mrs. Harris goes to America also.
