This Special Edition marks the 30th anniversary of one of the greatest situation comedies British television has ever seen, featuring all 12 episodes of John Cleese and Connie Booth's highly successful comedy series, set in a Torquay hotel.
Every episode of the BAFTA-winning sitcom has been fantastically remastered and for the first time ever John Cleese provides audio commentaries on all 12 episodes.
A double bill of Monty Python comedies. In 'The Holy Grail' (1975), King Arthur and his trusty knights fearlessly (for the most part) travel the length and breadth of the country in search of the mythical Holy Grail. On their way they have to deal with the sarcastic taunts of the French Knight, the Knights who say 'Ni', Tim the Enchanter and the Terror of the Cave of Caerbannog. 'Life of Brian' (1979), set during Biblical times, tells the story of Brian (Graham Chapman), an accidental messiah whose life runs in eerie parallel to that of Jesus Christ. His misadventures come to the attention of Pilate, crucifixion inevitably follows, and the film ends with the infamous group rendition of the song 'Always Look On the Bright Side of Life'.
Leon (Mark Frandel) suffers an identity crisis when he finds out he is not the Jewish son of a curtain net king, but rather the offspring of a Yorkshire pig farmer (Brian Glover). A more welcome complication develops as he divides his romantic attentions between two women - the girl-next-door played by Gina Bellman or the gorgeous Madeleine (Maryam D'Abo). A surprise commercial success, this British comedy was filmed on a profit sharing basis, with the crew working for nothing during the film's production, but receiving a percentage of any box office returns after it was released.
All 13 episodes of the gritty 1980s drama following a doctor's personal mission to take on the head of an international drug cartel. The suspicious death of a cocaine-addicted friend leads Dr. Ramsey (Philip Sayer) on a quest to uncover the truth that soon draws him into the shadowy world of the drugs industry. Following the trail that will eventually lead him to the underworld boss responsible, he quickly finds himself caught up in the middle of a network of corruption and conspiracy that stretches into the very heart of the establishment itself.
What did Basil Fawlty fail to avoid mentioning? Why did Sybil keep snagging her cardies? Where was Polly on the night of the great wedding anniversary disaster? And what is the Spanish word for "donkey"?The answer to all these questions can be found in this, the complete and unexpurgated scripts of Fawlty Towers ,the most celebrated "Brit-com" of all time, and the show was voted the top UK television series ever by the British Film Institute. The snobbish, manic Basil...his over-coiffeured, domineering wife Sybil...the hopeless but ever-hopeful waiter Manuel...the calm and capable Polly...and of course the steady stream of abused guests,all live again in the pages of The Complete Fawlty Towers. Gahan Wilson in the New York Times has called John Cleese "arguably one of the funniest people now living." And as one British periodical ( Literary Review ) put it, the book is "superbly well written. If you're on a bus and can't see Basil Fawlty thrashing his car with a large branch, it is some compensation to read it happening." Or as one anonymous fan put it on-line: "Yes, it's all here, all the comedy, the frustration, the dead body, even the rat."
John Cleese's special introductions to each episode are included in this collection of all 12 TV soundtrack episodes. Welcome to Fawlty Towers, where attentive hotelier Basil Fawlty and his charming wife Sybil will attend to your every need - in your worst nightmare. With hapless waiter Manuel and long-suffering waitress Polly on hand to help, anything could happen during your stay - and probably will. Every episode of both TV series is included in this soundtrack collection: A Touch of Class; The Builders; The Wedding Party; The Hotel Inspectors; Gourmet Night; The Germans; Communication Problems; The Psychiatrist; Waldorf Salad; The Kipper and the Corpse; The Anniversary; Basil the Rat.
