Never Again

Just after I quit the Edmonton Sun a former colleague who lived a couple of streets away from my place asked me to keep an eye on his house while the family went on a two week holiday in Nova Scotia. This included feeding the cat. He also told me to treat the house as my own and watch any of his DVDs that I fancied seeing. He had a box set called the Ealing Comedies. They were all classics - Whisky Galore, the Titfield Thunderbolt, Run for Your Money, Passport to Pimlico, and The Maggie. Every one pretty much a gem. I would have loved my own copy of the box set. But with just quitting my job, I was in a period of financial readjustment. It would have to wait. The thing is I have never seen five films packaged in a single box set again. Oh, you get them all in box sets. But they are sprinkled across several box sets containing less gem- like offerings. No DVD compiler has never made the mistake again of putting nearly all the Ealing keepers in one affordable box set.
