(4 out of 5 stars)
"There are three DVDs here: (1) What's Good for the Goose (5 stars); (2)Intimate Games (4 stars); and (3) Love is a Splendid Illusion (3 stars).
Despite No 1's bad reception on its release in the seventies, causing Norman Wisdom to desert film making for more than twenty years, I found it highly amusing and very sweet, in Sally Geeson's charmingly sexy way, portraying the kind of mini dresses that thrilled more than a generation, so clingingly, so intriguingly superior to the kind of looser minis we see today that seem designed by people who never experienced the c1965-1970 heydays of the mini skirt! Oh bliss!!!! By comparison, I reckon the makers of British TV's Heartbeat serial, set in that period, ought to be sued for misrepresentation of the thrilling female clothing so popular from the mid-1960s to the early 1970s -- unfortunately popular even with those ladies not blessed with the requisite shape for wearing them. Oh shame!!!!
I found No 2 very good indeed, with some actors and actresses familiar from TV shows of various kinds over many years, including those of Benny Hill, notably Suzy Mandel.
No 3 wasn't bad, but nowhere nearly so enjoyable as the two previous DVDs."
