The Best of Peter Cook and Dudley Moore (DVD)
The funniest man who ever drew breath. Stephen Fry on Peter Cook. "Like many smallish men (Napoleon, Adolf Hitler to name but two) Dudley has a superficial charm and warmth that deceives many." Peter Cook on Dudley Moore. In 1965 the BBC harnessed the talents of Peter Cook and Dudley Moore for a new show, Not Only But Also. Building scripts from improvised recordings (although ad-libs and corpsing remained irresistible features of the final recordings), the young partnership created their own style of comedy including the memorable Dagenham Dialogues of the cloth-capped Pete and Dud, and Peter Cook's magnificent old duffer Sir Arthur Greeb-Streebling. The series continued until 1970 and remains a seminal landmark in TV comedy. Many of Cook and Moore's best sketches are captured here, including 5-4-3-2-1 , the Superthunderstingraycars, the Leaping Nuns, The Glidd of Glood, Bo Dudley and the Goodbye-ee song.
