5.0 out of 5 stars Finally! What we have all been waiting for . . ., 11 Oct. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The Royal on DVD! This is a must have for anyone who likes decent, well written drama with twists and turns along the way. The stand out performances come from Michelle Hopkirk as Lizzie and Andy Wear as Alun Morris - both bring lots of humor to each episode and epitomize the fashion of the swinging 60s! There's even cameo appearances from Tricia Penrose, David Lonsdale and Mark Jordan - what more could you want?

I will never understand why ITV scrapped this popular and well loved show! Oh well at least we can sit back and enjoy the first series in all it's glory! I just hope we get to see all 8 series released on DVD, especially the Robert Cavanah and Sarah Beck-Mather episodes!!

This DVD is a MUST HAVE!!!! 6/5!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Divoon! Just what the Jayne fans have been waiting for!, 20 Mar. 2011
As one of the most photographed women of the 20th Century it is surprising that a book of this nature hasn't appeared on the market sooner, but it has been worth the wait. The book chronicles the life of Jayne mansfield though many candid, rare and previously unseen photos. What a joy to find a book that doesn't contain the same old photos of jayne we have seen many times before. There are some beautiful and touching pictures of Jayne and Mickey Hargitay, alongside the more wild and campy image Jayne created for herself in the 60s ( I must say these are my favorites). The book also shows how ahead of her time Miss Mansfield was - many of her outfits and styles would not look out of place on today's media darlings!
The author has done a fantastic job sharing his vast collection of unseen pictures.! As Jayne herself would have said - "Divoon"!!

5.0 out of 5 stars A touching tribute!, 9 Jan. 2011
I LOVED this book! If you're looking for an in-depth biography of Anna this probably isn't for you (buy 'When You Wished Upon A Star' instead), however the book really captures the essence of Anna. It has lots of lovely unseen pics of her having fun on a night out, dressing up for a Children's Charity event and lots more. It also has transcripts of emails sent between Anna and the authors. It is a great book and a touching and fitting tribute. Well worth the money!

5.0 out of 5 stars LOVE THIS BOOK!, 26 Dec. 2010
I had been waiting ages to get my hands on this book, but always thought the price was a little steep. I received this as a present and boy do I wish I had bought it sooner! It is jam packed with photos, biographical info, plot outlines of every film starring the ultimate 50's bombshell. The author does much to banish the myth of Mamie being another version of the hollywood blonde (Marilyn, Jayne etc). She was way out there on her own and way ahead of her time - her beauty style and choice of film roles far removed from the her fellow actresses. This book is well worth getting, even if you only have a slight interest in Mamie - once you have finished the book you will be eager to find out more! I also enjoyed the interviews with other actors and actresses who starred alongside Mamie in films such as Girls Town!! Well worth the money!!

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best films of the swingin' 60's!, 13 Dec. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I would urge anyone who hasn't had the pleasure of seeing this film to order a copy. A beach musical of the 1960's starring the legendary Jayne Mansfield singing, pouting and wiggling. Phyllis diller turns into a baby and Johnny Tillotson wears the best ever swimming trunk and braces ensamble known to man. Shame the picture quality isn't excellent, but when the film is this good who cares!! Enjoy!!

5.0 out of 5 stars EXCELLENT VIEWING!!, 13 Dec. 2010
Put your feet up and grab a cuppa! This is the best drama ever produced by the bbc. Well rounded characters that are excellently portrayed and laugh out loud twists and turns alongside gripping drama. Nancy Brisley should be a fashion icon for women the world over!!
