Is Your Honeymoon Really Necessary?

(1953) Stars: Diana Dors, Bonar Colleano, David Tomlinson, Diana Decker & Sid James.

This fast-moving bedroom farce features a sizzling performance from a young Diana Dors. American Army pilot Laurie Vining (Bonar Colleano), is on leave in London for his honeymoon, hoping for a little rest and recreation. But his idyllic bliss is shattered abruptly when his ex, Candy, (saucily played with mischievous relish by Dors), unexpectedly arrives at his hotel, insisting that they’re still man and wife. Under pressure to think quick and act fast, he enlists the assistance of his gum-chewing, wisecracking co-pilot Hank Hanlon (Sid James) and nervous, girl-shy lawyer Frank Betterton (David Tomlinson). However, his troubles have only just begun.

My Wife’s Lodger

(1952) OPTIONAL SUBTITLES

Stars: Diana Dors, Dominic Roche, Olive Sloane and Leslie Dwyer.

Hapless soldier Willie Higginbotham (Dominic Roche) returns home after six years, hoping for a hero’s welcome, only to find that his home has become a boarding house, and that Roger the lodger (Leslie Dwyer) has got his arms around his wife and his feet under the table. Meanwhile Willie’s daughter Eunice (Diana Dors) only wants to sing, dance and jitterbug! The script highlights the family’s ambivalence to Willie’s return, and his grim realisation that all has changed. In a touch of social comment, Roger informs Willie that he couldn’t enlist because “somebody’s got to turn out the armaments”. Willie drily replies, “aye, otherwise you wouldn’t be able to have any more nice wars, would you?” This would have struck a chord with returning servicemen, who often struggled to reintegrate into a changed community after the war.

Also included with the DVDs: Four Limited Edition “Diana Dors Fan Club” Badges

Our Limited Edition set of four Diana Dors Badges feature images of the actress playing the part of Calico in the 1958 film Tread Softly Stranger. The badges measure 6cm x 6cm.
