British Cinema Collection: Old Mother Riley

Overview

Decades before either Dame Edna or Madea took the stage, another in-drag character swept up legions of fans: Old Mother Riley. Music hall comedian Arthur Lucan donned a dress and bonnet and created the Riley character, a high-strung, salty-mouthed Irish washerwoman who headlined her own series of comedies in Britain from the late 1930s through the early 1950s.

More About This Product

Overview

Decades before either Dame Edna or Madea took the stage, another in-drag character swept up legions of fans: Old Mother Riley. Music hall comedian Arthur Lucan donned a dress and bonnet and created the Riley character, a high-strung, salty-mouthed Irish washerwoman who headlined her own series of comedies in Britain from the late 1930s through the early 1950s. They were generally produced on a shoestring budget, for companies such as Butcher's; most, though not all, were directed by Maclean Rogers. At their peak, the Riley films were as popular in the UK as Laurel & Hardy or Abbott & Costello were in the States. This collection from VCI Entertainment presents 6 of the 15 original Riley comedies; Old Mother Riley In Paris (1938) , Old Mother Riley M.P. (1939), Old Mother Riley's New Venture (1949), Old Mother Riley Headmistress (1950), Old Mother Riley's Jungle Treasure (1951) and Mother Riley Meets the Vampire.
