Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Dinner at the Sporting Club [DVD] [1978] (DVD)
FOR ME THE STAR OF DINNER AT THE SPORTING CLUB IS BILLY McCOLL, WHO PLAYS, AS DINNY MATHEWS HIS MANAGER, (john thaw) TELLS HIM 'A FIGHTER OF HEART AND GUTS',A GLASGOW BOXER WHO DESPITE BEING ON A LOSING RUN, DREAMS OF BEING HIS HERO ALI, AND MAKING ENOUGH MONEY TO GIVE UP HIS DAY JOB OF PAINTING AND DECORATING,AND IN DINNYS WORDS 'BUY A BUNGALOW IN ONGAR' this one hour play is packed with great actors,and some great lines,MAUREEN LIPMAN SITS ON THE BED AND PULLS HER HUSBAND APART WHILE HE JUSTIFY,S HIS REASON FOR GOING TO THE SPORTING CLUB TO MAKE CONTACTS,'BUT YOU DON,T EVEN LIKE SPORT'!THEN COMPLAINS 'ABOUT HIM BUYING HER A VOLVO ESTATE,'I WANTED A TR7... BLUE,! THE CONVERSATIONS AT THE CLUB ARE PRICELESS,'I SAW BALLY,NICE MAN NO SIDE TO HIM,..HE SAID HELLO'.THIS IS REPEATED TO ANY ONE WHO HEARS.THEN AS NOW THE PRAWN COCKTAIL BRIGADE, OF LAUGHING LOUD,CHUNTERING ON CIGARS,AND ROY CROPPER ENTERTAINING HIMSELF AND PALS WITH A COUPLE OF BRASSES,NOT THE SLIGHTEST INTEREST IN SPORT ...LIKE I SAID THEN AND NOW! JOHN THAW PLAYS THE BOXING MANAGER WANNABE,WHO LOVES THE SPORT SO MUCH HE READS THE TRADE PAPER..BOXING NEWS! A DREAMER ROLE FROM A DREAM ACTOR!LOVE IT! WHY CAN,T THE BBC BUCK THE TREND OF APEING SKY AND LETS MAKE SOMETHING AMERICA WOULD LIKE,(THE WHITE QUEEN) AND BRING BACK PLAY FOR TODAY! A GREAT DVD THROUGH AMAZON UK.
