The Comedy Collection - Volume 2 (DVD)
Over 10 hours of vintage comedy in a fabulous 3-DVD box set. First up are Brian Rix and the lovely Liz Fraser in 'THE NIGHT WE DROPPED A CLANGER' (1959). Rix plays two roles; as an aircraftsman and the British Wing Commander, for double the wartime confusion! Our next film stars Peter Sellers, Dick Emery, Pamela Thomas and Spike Milligan: 'THE CASE OF THE MUKKINESE BATTLE-HORN' (1956). The story sees Quilt and Brown investigate the battle-horns disappearance and meet a few eccentric characters along the way. 'WHAT A WHOPPER' (1961) tells the story of a struggling writer, Tony Blake (Adam Faith), who fakes an appearance of the Loch Ness monster. The films also stars Sid James, Charles Hawtrey, Terence Longdon & Carole Lesley. 'THE BUTLER'S DILEMMA' (1943) stars Richard Hearne as Rodney, who has to impersonate a butler in exchange for having his large gambling debts written off. The film co-stars Hermione Gingold and Henry Kendall. 'GERT & DAISY CLEAN UP' (1942) is a "lost" film restored and available for the very first time on DVD in this box set. The title characters (Elsie and Doris Waters) help the war effort and foil a racketeering plot! In 'TONS OF TROUBLE' (1956) we follow caretaker Mr. Pastry (Richard Hearne) and his hilarious calamities with 'Mavis & Ethel', the two boilers he looks after! In 'GERT & DAISY'S WEEK-END' (1942) the two East End sisters volunteer to escort a group of evacuee children out of Blitz-torn London into the safety of the countryside. 'YOUR MONEY OR YOUR WIFE' (1960) follows married couple Pelham (Donald Sinden) and Gay Butterworth (Peggy Cummins) as they unexpectedly run into money troubles. This wonderful collection also includes a new interview programme with LIZ FRASER 'HER LIFE IN FILM' and rounds off with the short feature 'COMEDY COCKTAIL' (1951), which features clips from Charlie Chaplin films.
