Arrived on time – packaging very good. Frankie howerd at his best, particularly in up pompeii.

These days some of the material does seem a minor laboured, but my teenage female loves it (if it can span that time-gap then it are unable to be that lousy).
What more is there to say than frankie is terrific. I have desired this for some time and so happy i made the work. Cherished the sequence and now i can observe each time.
Initially acquired for the finish bbc collection of up pompeii. The other 2 dvd’s are a bonus. I purchased a 2nd established of ‘ the frankie howerd collection ‘ for my brother who also showed an curiosity. Designed a very good current for his birthday.
Reviews from purchasers :
- All the ‘Up Pompeii’ episodes, but not the feature film.
- “Oh, please yourselves!”
- Still hilarious after all these years
This dvd came on time and is in terrific ailment. We are taking pleasure in it and are remembering when we viewed it to start with time round.
If frankie howerd is your point then this is a wonderful small colection of different points. As generally with 1970’s things, there are some ‘oh dear’ moments to fashionable ears but there is also plenty of a gifted comedian to happily appreciate.
Far better than freebie from ‘daily mirror’.
Great boxset, fast shipping, perfect situation.
Hilarious, by no means stopped laughing at frankie, his mournful, dead pan expressions extra to the non end laughter. His ‘up pompeii’ is traditional.
Corny but it nevertheless will make you chortle.
The frankie howerd collection, a somewhat obscure title and not a point created on the front of the box to spell out what it is made up of. For a long time i experienced been ready for up pompeii to arrive out on dvd and it experienced been below all alongside. The box established has the pilot episode created for the comedy playhouse, the two sequence just one and two in total, and the just one off episode ‘further up pompeii’ which was made about a year later on, not to be puzzled with the dissapointing 1991 even more up pompeii, which wasn’t produced by the bbc but itv. Alongside with the comprehensive bbc collection of up pompeii, it has the ‘best of frankie howerd’ which is offered seperately a worthwhile dvd with snippets of all frankies greatest sketches and television set appearances around the yrs, and the final dvd is ‘and churchill explained to me’ a different series frankie did for bbc television set. All in all this is a good collection of frankies best stuff all in just one box set but awful promoting by the bbc, they really should have manufactured it additional evident just what was in it.
Liked this purchased back memories.
A combined bag in this great deal with some of howerd’s very best substance and some not so effectively regarded. Pity that these aren’t demonstrated on tv these times.
I experienced only at any time found clips of ‘up pompeii’. Judging it by the clips it seemed pretty humorous, but soon after viewing the series, i realised the collection was hilarious and is certainly up there with the likes of ‘dad’s army’ and ‘blackadder’. The collection also incorporates ‘then churchill said to me’, which, even though not as fantastic as ‘up pompeii’, it is nevertheless a definitely amusing sitcom, with another outstanding functionality by howard. I hope we might get ‘whoops baghdad’ produced on dvd someday.
Frankie howard one-handedly designed ‘up pompeii’ the results it was. You knew what was coming nauseous constantly introduced ode, senna the sooth-sayer would spell out the plot and lurcio (howard) would under no circumstances complete the prologue. Howard generating exciting of the plot at periods (and the acting) and his one of a kind type of humour manufactured it all very watchable. Far more politically incorrect than it was when initially screened, some of the script will elevate your eyebrows. In all probability only for individuals in their 50’s as they will recognize the humour (e. Surprise if youthful folks will know what clinker is). The first series had willie rushton show up as a greek god of some form which was disjointed and does not function for me but the 2nd series took this out and became the improved for it. A blast from the previous but still a blast.
The best f h collection out there.
This box set incorporates a superb vary of shows featuring the late fantastic frankie howerd (with and ‘e’ exactly where the ‘a’ should be). The gem of this box established for me was up pompeii, the most important cause i bought this box set. Established for the duration of the world of ancient rome, the collection has a have on sense to it and experienced a surprising range of guest appearances from other comedy actors. Initially no longer out there in pal structure (one more sufferer of the bbc burning film 1 they were completed with it) it was transformed, in a relatively new approach, from the american ntsc format. Highly encouraged for lovers of cheeky typical british comedy, a really enjoyable collection.
Wonderful dvd and in a fantastic robust case.
Hunted for this for my partner, discovered it and you delivered it the up coming day, simply cannot inform you how grateful i am for the speed, he has vascular dementia, and when he remembers anything, and wants to see it, it is urgent, he is fortunately having fun with it ideal now.
