I'm All Right Jack

Overview

John Boulting's I'm All Right Jack (1959) is regarded as the peak of the Boulting brothers' output, and with good reason -- the visual and verbal comic conceits pour off of the screen in profusion. From the opening sequence in a nudist colony, and even the opening credits (featuring a rock 'n' roll song co-authored by Ron Goodwin, no less), there's enough to laugh at to make it obligatory to watch this movie more than once; thus, a good home viewing edition is essential, and this DVD just fits that bill.

Overview

John Boulting's I'm All Right Jack (1959) is regarded as the peak of the Boulting brothers' output, and with good reason -- the visual and verbal comic conceits pour off of the screen in profusion. From the opening sequence in a nudist colony, and even the opening credits (featuring a rock 'n' roll song co-authored by Ron Goodwin, no less), there's enough to laugh at to make it obligatory to watch this movie more than once; thus, a good home viewing edition is essential, and this DVD just fits that bill. The film-to-video transfer looks as good as any black-and-white movie of its era, a near-perfect mastering of a near-perfect source, the only imperfection being the very slightly low audio level -- The Smallest Show On Earth from the same DVD release cycle sounds better. The 105 minute movie has 26 chapters and a trailer (for a change), and the latter is so fresh in its own right that leaving it out would have been an act of willful neglect. The menu is one of the less inventive in this series, but then one would be so hard put to equal the movie's level of humor, that the producers can be forgiven for that "lapse."

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide - Richard Gilliam
I'm All Right, Jack is the rare sequel that is better than its predecessor. The earlier film, Private's Progress, is funny, but I'm All Right, Jack is both funny and observant in the knowing and telling ways that are the hallmarks of good satire. The film's high point is a star-making performance from Peter Sellers, who shows the versatility that he would sharpen in such classic films as Dr. Strangelove and Being There. The film belongs to the distinctly British genre of subversive working-class comedies, which would later include such films as Brassed Off and The Full Monty and even such non-comedies as Trainspotting. Few films of the late 1950s are as intelligent, even if the film is not seen often enough by current-day audiences.
