The Adelphi Collection MISS TULIP STAYS THE NIGHT + THE GREAT GAME Starring Diana Dors A delicious double-dose of effervescent vintage comedy-drama starring Britain's blondest bombshell, the one-and-only Diana Dors, at her saucy best. Laughter and thrills mingle in Miss Tulip Stays the Night as gorgeous Kate Dax (Dors) and her crime-writer husband, Andrew (Patrick Holt), investigate the murder of eccentric spinster Miss Tulip (Cicely Courtneidge) at a remote country cottage. With the help - or hindrance - of bumbling PC Feathers (deftly played by British comedy legend Jack Hubert), will they ever crack their crazy case and finally figure out whodunit? Goals and glamour go together in The Great Game, a high-scoring drama of football league corruption, shot on location at Griffin Park, historic home of Brentford FC. With fine performances from James Hayter as Burnville United's unscrupulous team chairman, Thora Hird as his long-suffering assistant, and Dors enjoying herself as man-eating secretary Lulu not to mention a splendid eyeball-rolling turn from John Laurie the final result is a nostalgic Saturday afternoon treat for movie buffs and football fans alike. Transferred in High Definition from the best archive materials available, this Diana Dors double bill is accompanied by a fully illustrated 36-page booklet that includes original promotional materials and newly commissioned essays by authors Jenny Hammerton, Huw Prall and BFI Curator Vic Pratt.
