Movie Reviews

The genius- the EARLY years
BBC FAN | N.Y. United States | 08/11/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"What great stuff. There are 3 approx. 1 hr sets of skits, taken from the original BBC Benny Hill show which ran from 1955-1968. All eps are in B&W, with some VERY noticeable noise and a sqiggle or 2. Does it take away from the enjoyment of the DVD? HELL NO! Remember people, this was a tv variety show from the 50's to mid-late60's. Not too many studios kept up their libraries of past shows, especially with the BBC, since Benny left them at the height of his popularity to join Thames tv. Buy this. It's nostalgic, funny and a rollicking good time."
Poor quality print but excellent early Benny

"This DVD contains exerpts from Benny Hill's show which ran on the BBC from the mid fities until he switched to Thames Television in 1969. The quality of the shows in black and white is much cruder than the post 1969 shows. More importantly, many of the skits have been redone in the Thames years, often better too as Benny polished the scripts.

If you have already purchased the expensive Thames DVD sets, don't bother with this. If not, then the much cheaper cost of this DVD makes it worthwhile."
Really good

"This has really old clips and it is fun to see him so young."
