The Will Hay Collection
Will Hay is one of the greatest and most inimitable British comedians of all time. A major star of the 1930s, he relished playing pompous, incompetent authority figures, and his misanthropic antics have inspired many great funny men. The Will Hay Collection DVD box set contains nine discs, featuring the following films:
Good Morning, Boys
Will Hay again stars in the role of Dr. Benjamin Twist, but this time his pupils become involved with art thieves on a trip to Paris. Hay's seamy schoolmaster act is supported by a fine cast including Charles Hawtrey and Lilli Palmer.
Hey! Hey! USA
Hay plays Dr. Benjamin Twist and is joined by American comedian Edgar Kennedy (Duck Soup) in this transatlantic caper, which sees the pair take off on a ship heading for New York.
Oh, Mr. Porter!
Will Hay is sent off by his relatives to rural Ireland, where he becomes the Stationmaster of a derelict Irish railway station. There is little to do and much mischief to be had - including catching gun-runners posing as ghosts!
Windbag The Sailor
Will Hay plays Ben Cutlet and, for the first time, is joined by Moore Marriott and Graham Moffatt. Tricked into taking control of an un-seaworthy ship - which the owners intend to sink - the hapless trio find themselves as the sole crew of the decrepit vessel.

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.
