I wonder if And Soon The Darkness comes with the audio commentary by Robert Fuest and Brian Clemens as I missed out on the US Anchor Bay DVD and there's no extras on the Optimum DVD? I know Kino Lorber's Blu will have the audio plus another by Troy Howarth.

Teddy, I'm a Scotch drinker - you know that. I just have the occasional brandy when I'm not drinking.

Ryan Gilby in the Guardian gave it four stars when the theatrical release had a five star review from Peter Bradshaw.

I thought the version I saw was brilliant and would like to see it again at the cinema, so I hope the director's cut comes to the one in town.

'Clockwise' - release date November 18

Pre-order available from Amazon UK - Blu-Ray £15.99 or DVD £12.99

"STUDIOCANAL is thrilled to announce the release of a newly restored version of the madcap British comedy classic, Clockwise. Featuring a tour-de-force performance from John Cleese (‘Monty Python’s Flying Circus’, ‘Fawlty Towers’) in full Basil Fawlty mode, audiences will have the opportunity to experience this lesson in the art of comic timing looking better than ever when it is released on November 16 on DVD, Digital Download and, for the very first time, on Blu-Ray. For the 2019 restoration of Clockwise, STUDIOCANAL returned to the original colour negative. The scanning, restoration and grading of the negative was performed in 4K.

With a razor-sharp screenplay by acclaimed author and playwright Michael Frayn (Noises Off, Copenhagen) and great supporting turns from Alison Steadman (Life is Sweet, Pride and Prejudice), Penelope Wilton (Downton Abbey, The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel) and the late Stephen Moore (The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, The Secret Diary of Adrian Mole) Clockwise is the film that inspired Cleese to make A Fish Called Wanda and remains a much treasured British comedy classic to this day.

John Cleese plays a clock watching headmaster obsessed with timekeeping. When he boards the wrong train on his way to headmasters’ conference, however, his obsessive punctuality is put to the test. Truning back to find alternative means of transport, he hijacks one of his pupils who is taking the afternoon off school in her father’s car. As the journey descends into further chaos, the head quickly begins to lose his schoolmasterly poise…."

DVD/Blu-Ray Extras:
  • New Interview with Michael Frayn
  • Clock watching with Mr. Cleese
  • Stills gallery

'Les Demoiselles de Rochefort' from BFI Films - release date November 4th, and available for pre-order at Amazon UK - £14.99

"Product Description

Les Demoiselles De Rochefort (Blu-ray). Director: Jacques Demy

The delightfully light-hearted Les Demoiselles de Rochefort is Jacques Demy's large-scale tribute to the Hollywood musical. The story unfolds over the course of a weekend and centres on twin sisters Delphine and Solange (played by real life sisters Catherine Deneuve and Françoise Dorléac) who, tired of their humdrum existence, dream of finding success and romance in Paris. Little do they know that their ideal partner may be just around the corner. The superb ensemble featuring such screen legends as Gene Kelly, Danielle Darrieux, Michal Piccoli, Jacques Perrin, George Chakiris and Grover Dale weave and wander around the town, looking for and just missing the loves of their lives. Will the happy pairs of lovers be united or cruel fate keep them apart?

With a plot of pure Shakespearean farce, witty dialogue and lyrics by Demy, and a magnificent jazz score by three-time Academy Award winner Michel Legrand, Les Demoiselles de Rochefort is an effervescent celebration of life that is sure to captivate and uplift."
