The Terry Thomas Movie Collection
This box set contains three of Britain's favourite comedies, starring the best-loved cad in the business, Terry-Thomas. It provides a cocktail of double-crossing, eyebrow raising, cigarette clutching, gap-toothed farce.
The Naked Truth (1957)
A fast-paced black comedy, which was an early hit for Peter Sellers. He joins Terry-Thomas, Shirley Eaton, Joan Sims and Peggy Mount as a group of celebrities and VIPs who are being blackmailed by the sleazy editor (Dennis Price) of a scandal rag called "The Naked Truth". Terry-Thomas is delightful as the shifty Lord of the Realm.
Too Many Crooks (1958)
A gang of incompetent crooks (George Cole, Sid James, Bernard Bresslaw) unsuccessfully attempt to rob Terry-Thomas's tight-fisted millionaire but then decide to kidnap his daughter instead. A likeable farce with a marvellous cast of familiar British faces including John Le Mesurier and Terry Scott.
Make Mine Mink (1960)
Retired major Terry-Thomas, ex-con Billie Whitelaw, eccentric dowager Athene Seyler and disgruntled teacher of etiquette Hattie Jacques are among the peculiar residents of a boarding house who turn into modern day Robin Hoods, stealing fur for charity.
All three titles have been digitally re-mastered.

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.
