Network Distributing have announced a further two titles for UK DVD release in November as part of their ongoing 'The British Film' collection Please Teacher is a pre–war farce starring Bobby Howes as a man who is determined to trace his aunt's legacy, while Dangerous Voyage is a crime mystery starring William Lundigan in a tale of peril in the English Channel.
Please Teacher (1937)
Tommy Deacon learns that a gift bequeathed by his aunt is hidden in her house inside a bust of Napoleon. However, the house has been sold, and is now a girls' school – and to gain admission Tommy has to resort to guile and subterfuge.
This pre-war farce stars diminutive music-hall stalwart Bobby Howes (Happy Go Lovely, Sweet Devil) as an heir-hunter whose determined efforts to trace his aunt's legacy lead to ructions in a girls' school. Please Teacher also features stage veteran Lyn Harding (The Pearls Of The Crown, Goodbye, Mr. Chips), Australian comedienne Vera Pearce (So You Won't Talk, What A Man!) and noted character player Wylie Watson (The 39 Steps, Brighton Rock).
Please Teacher is presented here in a brand-new transfer from the original film elements in its as-exhibited theatrical aspect ratio.
Please Teacher will be released on UK DVD as part of Network's 'The British Film' collection on 3rd November 2014 at the RRP of £9.99.

Dangerous Voyage (1954)
Whilst cruising in their yacht, 'Gelert', John Drew and his sister Joan encounter a dis-masted vessel drifting helplessly, and take it in tow. Darkness falls as they approach the harbour, but the two men aboard the stricken yacht can be clearly seen in the rays of a searchlight. On entering the lock, however, the men are found to be missing and there is no clue on board the vessel as to her port of origin or destination. She has no name, and no papers of any kind. In fact, the only article of interest is a man's left shoe.
Also known as Terror Voyage and even Terror Ship, this 1954 crime mystery revisits the setting of director Vernon Sewell's earlier feature Ghost Ship, starring athletic New Yorker (and future Men Into Space lead) William Lundigan in an intriguing tale of peril in the English Channel.
Shot at Merton Park Studios, Dangerous Voyage is featured here in a brand-new transfer from the original film elements, in its as-exhibited theatrical aspect ratio.
Dangerous Voyage will be available to own on UK DVD from 3rd November 2014 at the RRP £9.99, courtesy of Network's 'The British Film' collection.
