The king of comedy lights up the 70’s!
Join comedy superstar Benny Hill in more than thirty of his classic shows made throughout the 1970s. Known throughout the world for his combination of high-speed farce, risqué jokes and gorgeous ladies, it is these shows – made for Thames Television – that turned him into a global household name. Who can forget his most memorable character – Fred Scuttle (always on hand to make things take a turn for the worse) – and the slightly demented Mr. Chow Mein, who in this set introduces his new film “Kung Phooie!” You can also see Fanee and Jonee Claddock, who teach you how to prepare some new, exotic meals that include flogs legs, loobarb and kiddlies. And, whatever you do, don’t miss “Murder On the Oregon Express”, a whodunnit starring McCloud, Ironside, Cannon, Kojak and Hercule Poirot!
Critically acclaimed and highly popular, it’s no surprise that The Benny Hill Show was one of the most successful programmes on British television. So join Benny, the ladies and his trio of hopeless helpers (Henry McGee, Bob Todd and Jackie Wright) in an entire decade’s worth of mirth from the 1970s.
Also included in this set is both of Benny’s shows from 1969 along with the thirty-minute play from 1970 called Eddie in August, which he starred in, wrote and co-directed.
