A delicious double-dose of effervescent vintage comedy-drama starring Britain's blondest bombshell, the one-and-only Diana Dors, at her saucy best. Contains Miss Tulip Stays the Night (Arliss, 1955) and The Great Game (Elvey, 1953).
Miss Tulip Stays the Night: Laughter and thrills mingle in as gorgeous Kate Dax (Dors) and her crime-writer husband, Andrew (Patrick Holt), investigate the murder of eccentric spinster Miss Tulip (Cicely Courtneidge) at a remote country cottage. With the help - or hindrance - of bumbling P.C. Feathers (deftly played by British comedy legend Jack Hulbert), will they ever crack their crazy case and finally figure out whodunit?
The Great Game: Goals and glamour go together in a high-scoring drama of football league corruption, shot on location at Griffin Park, historic home of Brentford F.C. With fine performances from James Hayter as Burnville United's unscrupulous team chairman, Thora Hird as his long-suffering assistant, and Dors enjoying herself as man-eating secretary Lulu - not to mention a splendid eyeball-rolling turn from John Laurie - the final result is a nostalgic Saturday afternoon treat for movie buffs and football fans alike.
