Customer Review

on August 30, 2013
Superb remastered movie nostalgia - I am a fan of Mr Pastry and this is a fine tribute to the athletic performer.
Some nice shots of old 1950's London with long gone tobacconists plus a great scene where he rides a moped through WOOLWORTHS with the wooden floors, all the pre decimal priced items etc etc - nice.

Its a happy go lucky movie and of a time when simple entertainment was the norm, I am 53 years old yet I know many 30 somethings that love this type of film, yes indeed its slapstick and typical Brit comedy of that time, none the less, its a movie that I will re watch and show to many.
Excellent picture restore but the sound is of the compressed auto levels that make the sound EFX loud and the music is higher than the speech, so you may have to set your modern 10 point one audio to suit.

Something in the City is a somewhat forgotten British film production GEM. For a while Richard Hearne was one of British television's biggest stars, comparable to today's Mr Bean. Sadly he has almost completely disappeared from memory along with an early golden age of British television in the 1950s.

Richard Hearne, likeable chap, and the alter ego he plays in this movie is indeed reminiscent of his famous mad cap character Mr Pastry - I personally will keep this movie in my collection.
If nothing else, its a spotting the old London type of movie, with the shops, cars, bikes and fashions of that time, great reference piece too.
