The Best Of Morecambe & Wise

The Best Of Morecambe & Wise

A collection of some of your favourite sketches from an irreplaceable comedy partnership, including:

Anthony and Cleopatra, starring Glenda Jackson (but without Caesar, Who'd come down with 'a touch of the hieroglyphics').

Monty on the Bounty - With Arthur Lowe as Captain Bligh, Eric Morecambe as Fletcher Christian and Ernie Wise as Midshipman Tinkle.

The meeting of Byron and Keats - including such unforgettable lines as 'Two cows eating grass on a warm sunny hillock, by four tomorrow that grass will be mil-lock!'

Eric being well and truly 'lacquered' as a long-standing member of a bar-football team - with new recruit, Ernie strapped alongside him on the wooden bar.

The classic Singing In The Rain Sketch. And, most famous of all, Eric and Ernie making breakfast to the sound of the stripper music.
