Wodehouse Playhouse - Acorn to Re-Release 'The Complete Collection' on DVD


6-disc set first out in 2004 comes back to stores with new package art

    Based on the stories by P.G. Wodehouse. "Delightful" - Daily Mail (U.K.); "An engaging tribute to the master of polished, joyous foolishness" - The Guardian (U.K.). Starring John Alderton and Pauline Collins.

    A deft writer of daft protagonists, P.G. Wodehouse has delighted fans with his razor-sharp wit and marvelously madcap plots for over a century. This sparkling BBC series brings 20 of his hilarious tales to life with Oscar nominee Pauline Collins (Shirley Valentine) and real-life husband John Alderton (Upstairs, Downstairs) playing Wodehouse's uproarious eccentrics. The celebrated writer-still twinkling with comic mischief in his 90s-offers introductions to the first seven stories.
Acorn Media is re-releasing a 6-DVD package of Wodehouse Playhouse - The Complete Collection this January 29th, at $59.99 SRP. Previously available but discontinued, fans can now once again get all 20 episodes of the British classic program: "The Truth about George," "Romance at Droitgate Spa," "Portrait of a Disciplinarian," "Unpleasantness at Bludleigh Court," "The Rise of Minna Nordstrom," "Rodney Fails to Qualify," "A Voice from the Past," "Anselm Gets His Chance," "Mr. Potter Takes a Rest Cure," "Strychnine in the Soup," "Feet of Clay," "The Nodder," "The Code of the Mulliners," "The Smile That Wins," "Trouble down at Tudsleigh," "Tangled Hearts," "The Luck of the Stiffhams," "The Editor Regrets," "Big Business" and "Mulliner's Buck-U-Uppo." Also, as a bonus, you'll get Photo Galleries, a P.G. Wodehouse biography, and an insert with background notes about the stories and characters. English subtitles are on board. The studio notes that "Due to the age of these programs and the improved resolution that DVD provides, you may notice occasional flaws in the image and audio on this DVD presentation that were beyond our ability to correct from the original materials." Here's the new cover art:
