Father's Doing Fine & Freedom of the Seas on DVD in November

28 October 2014

Netwrok Distributing have announced a further two titles for November DVD release as part of their ongoing 'The British Film' collection: Father's Doing Fine,a domestic comedy about a middle class family starring Richard Attenborough; and Freedom Of The Seas, an early 30s comedy about an unlikely wartime hero.

Father's Doing Fine (1952)

This good-natured domestic comedy charts the adventures of an impoverished upper-class family consisting of a widowed mother and her four daughters. The love affairs of the two unmarried daughters, some worthless shares, a thieving butler, the unpaid rent, the matrimonial difficulties of a third daughter and the imminent motherhood of the eldest are just some of the things that have to be dealt with over the course of a single day!

Based on Noel Langley’s play Little Lambs Eat Ivy (a title inspired by Milton Drake’s 1943 novelty hit), Father’s Doing Fine stars the late Richard Attenborough as a frantic father-to-be and Heather Thatcher (Gaslight, Man Hunt) as a straitened matriarch Lady Buckering.

Father’s Doing Fine is presented here in a brand-new transfer from the original film elements, in its as-exhibited theatrical aspect ratio.

Father’s Doing Fine will be available to own on DVD from 10th November 2014 at the RRP of £9.99, courtesy of Network’s ‘The British Film’ collection.

Special features will include:

Freedom of the Seas (1934)

George Smith, a mild-mannered clerk with a crush on his boss's daughter, is led astray by an old friend of his father. A midday sojourn to a public bar results in him insulting his boss, getting sacked and enlisting in the Navy. Will he still remain a feeble second-best, or will active service make a man of him?

Noted light comedian Clifford Mollison (Mister Cinders, The Lucky Number) and celebrated playwright/actor H.F. Maltby (It’s Never Too Late To Mend, His Lordship Regrets) are among the cast of this sprightly early-thirties comedy charting the exploits of an unlikely wartime hero.

Freedom of the Seas is featured here in a brand-new transfer from the original film elements in its as-exhibited theatrical aspect ratio.

Freedom Of The Seas will be available to own on DVD from 10 November 2014 at the RRP of £9.99, courtesy of Network’s ‘The British Film’ collection.
