Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble
This two-disc collection includes the last of the BBC's three Wodehouse Playhouse series, comprising seven 30-minute dramatizations of various P. G. Wodehouse short stories, each introduced by the author himself. Produced in 1978 and featuring John Alderton and Pauline Collins in various roles, the productions retain the author's deft and definitively British comic touch, with the emphasis on scripts and performances rather than lavish sets and such. The stories include: "The Smile That Wins"; "Trouble Down at Tudliegh"; "Tangled Hearts"; "The Luck of the Stiffhams"; "The Editor Regrets"; "Big Business"; and "Mulliner's Buck-U-Uppo."
