The 1950s, the first decade after World War 2 and after years of rationing and austerity, film makers decided it was time for the British public to laugh again!
The decade saw some of the best British comedy films ever made and some of the best actors emerge. Actors such as Stanley Holloway, Frankie Howerd and John Gregson graced our screens during the '50s and would become household names... even beyond their own households! British comedy was gentler then than it is today, but no less funny, and we are sure that you will enjoy plenty of belly laughs from the 4 films in this box set.
Jumping For Joy (1956)
Stanley Holloway and Frankie Howerd combine in this canine caper and they must escape the clutches of a race fixing gang to ensure that their pooches bring home the bacon at the race for the Golden Bowl.
Set in 1950s Dublin, John Gregson is the irrepressible James Ignatious Rooney... the hurling loving dustman. Landladies fall at his feet and it's not due to the stench of the rubbish from his daily collections... Rooney is to too much of a gentleman to bring his work home with him... Oh no! It's the Irish Blarney, his good looks and his dog.
The Captain's Table (1959)
The crew of a cruise liner, led by Donald Sinden and Richard Wattis, do their best to maintain order as the passengers get up to all sorts of unpredictable and hilarious antics on board ship.
