Man In The Moon
William Blood is Mr. Normal, yet he is also a rather strange man. He has an inability to worry, and an inability to become ill, enabling him to make his living as a human guinea pig. One assignment, from the Common Cold Research Station, finds him sleeping in a field. On waking, he sees a beautiful woman running to the railway station. But William is also immune to women... or so he believes.
When William reports his results, he is sacked for failing to contract a cold. Setting off to find another job, he bumps into the young woman, Polly, once again. However, a team of 'NASTI' scientists have an extraordinary mission planned for William: rather than risk the lives of highly trained astronauts, they want to send him to the moon. But has William finally succumbed to the disease that is incurable - love?
Kenneth More takes the lead role opposite Shirley Anne Field in this marvellously madcap sci-fi comedy directed by Basil Dearden and jointly scripted by the multi-award winning Bryan Forbes (Whistle Down The Wind) and Oscar-nominee Michael Relph (An Unsuitable Job For A Woman).

If ordering from a UK store, please note that you are in Region 1 (DVD)/Region A (Blu-ray), whilst the UK is in Region 2/B, respectively. This means that many - but by no means all - may fail to play. Look for products marked "Region free", "All regions", "Region 0" or "Multi-region". Blu-rays may also be marked "Region A/B/C", or variations thereof. You may also check whether your DVD/Blu-ray player supports multi-region playback (also referred to as "region free"), or whether it can be set to do so. There should, of course, be no problems with books, CDs, or other physical items.
