Product Description

Watch the Prime Minister of Comedy at the height of his career in BENNY HILL: COMPLETE AND UNADULTERATED--SET FOUR: THE HILL’S ANGEL YEARS! 1978-1981 witnessed new producer Dennis Kirkland's raucous and rowdy influence on The Benny Hill Show, Benny's receipt of the "Funniest Man on Television" award, and the introduction of the beautiful and buxom Hill's Angels. The Benny Hill Show's pioneering sketch comedy didn’t pull any punches, and this fourth set of complete episodes doesn't disappoint! Chow Mein and Fred Scuttle return in new madcap moments and the debut of Benny's Aussie Digger Blue, film legend Michael Caine, and the Scarlet Pimple bring new hilarity to the program. Never broadcast in full-length form in the U.S., the only way to see the ten original Thames episodes from 1978-1981 in their entirety is through this essential DVD collection. DVD Features: "I Was A Hill’s Angel" Featurette; The Benny Hill Cheeky Challenge Trivia Quiz #4; Interactive Menus; Scene Selection

The "Hill's Angels" of Benny Hill Complete and Unadulterated: The Hill's Angels Years, Set Four (1978-1981) are a cluster of fabulous babes who serve both as eye candy in comic master Benny Hill's musical sets and as a repertory company filling out his sketches. For the first time, a Hill fan can get familiar with some of the talented women who decorate Hill's show and even appreciate them for something beyond the obvious.

Otherwise, Set Four carries on the tradition of Hill's naughty burlesque act. In "First Impressions," two Irish blokes--improbable guests on a television interview show--encounter a language barrier with the host due to their unique pronunciations: "My friend gave driving tests to girls, and sometimes he would feel them." "He would, uh, feel them?" "Yes, if they didn't pass, he'd feel them." In the very Red Skelton-like "Hotel Sordide" sketch, Hill plays a bellhop who inadvertently gets caught in a raucous fight between lovers, besieged by amorous attentions from comely ladies and the jealous rages of their men. Longtime fans of British TV comedy will appreciate Hill's impression of comedian Dave Allen (down to the latter's missing finger), in a good bit in which Allen can't tell a joke without offending one or another ethnic group or minority sitting in his outraged audience. Other good impersonations include Hill's take on Anthony Newley, Miriam Makeba, W.C. Fields, and, astonishingly, Bob Dylan. Finally, a real highlight of the set is "Women's Lib Television," in which a TV channel devoted to female viewers (a pretty prescient idea at the time) offers such fare as the game show "Sale of the Century." Hill plays the snarky hostess, who engages in man-bashing puns while a sexist male panelist answers contest questions with horrifying stereotypes. ("The three fastest means of communication? Telegram, telephone, and tell a woman.") --Tom Keogh

These Benny Hill collections are the BEST!
Brandon L. Harlow
Benny Hill is truly a genius and you can see it through his sketches, songs, silent mini-movies, bloopers and more.

Not even this DVD set, which is only available in the USA!

As a Brit who followed Benny's great TV shows in the 1970s and 1980s, it pains me to see how the Great Man is so poorly treated by the country that he brought so much laughter to.

No reruns on TV's UK Gold... no anniversary tributes... no specials celebrating his fantastic humour... nothing. Not even this DVD set, which is only available in the USA! It's as if the whole establishment is ashamed of him.

And why? Because he had a few scantily-clad girls in his shows.

Quite why this is sneered at with such venom by today's politically correct critics is beyond me - to me it's no worse than any of the vile so-called humour peddled by the likes of Julian Clary, Graham Norton, Ben Elton, Eddie Izzard and a whole host of current 'right on' so-called comedians, who aren't fit to lick Benny's boots.

There's nothing wrong with a bit of wholesome heterosexual titillation - in fact, in this day and age it's positively refreshing.

So a huge thank you to A&E from one very grateful Brit for releasing every one of the Great Man's shows, in full, unedited, and with no adverts either! Absolutely fantastic top drawer laugh-out-loud comedy, delivered with that famous cheeky twinkle in Benny's eye. A gold-topped DVD set!

This was when Benny and his gang had truly hit their stride and decided to go into overdrive with the cheeky humor. Thank goodness they brought in Hill's Angels to give his gang of elder comics something worthy of being dirty old men over. I've been trying to watch these episodes on BBCAmerica, but they butcher them up. There's no need to feel the mercy of a bunch of TV programmers - get your Benny Hill uncut and not ready to be passed off as family friendly.

So sing along with Benny's wicked tales and follow his lusty leer. This is a series worth putting on your shelf.

Yes it is Benny the Great, and "not a lot of people know that." Benny Hill was one of the greatest comedians of the 20th century and this DVD set showcases some of his best work. It includes classics such as "Wonder Gran v. Dracula" and "Friday Night Fever." I remember watching these episodes on cable and laughing my head off. When I saw these DVDs coming out, I made sure to pre-order as soon as I could. Don't listen to the detractors and help yourself to a dose of Benny today.

I grew up watching these shows having always been a fan of British humor. Monty Python shows and films are still some of my favorite. Benny's humor is a bit racey but now that we've gotten to the "Hill's Angels" years, it's interesting to see the documentary from many former "Angels" and hear there take on the show and it's critics. They felt the men came out looking stupid; or someway or another, were the loosers.

Critics were always harsh on this style of "sexist" humor but I feel it's far more innocent than some of the trash out there today, and I'm not talking about porn or cable shows but regular TV. Tell me Desperate Housewives or I'll bet many soap-operas aren't far worse than any cheeky humor from this kind, baby-faced British treasure.

Benny still makes me laugh...

I love Benny Hill. I can't believe that every time I watch the shows I find them funnier and funnier. I have seen the 4 DVD sets and I can't tell which one is the best. Benny Hill is truly a genius and you can see it through his sketches, songs, silent mini-movies, bloopers and more. This set is really good indeed, one of my favourites. I can't wait to have the next set.

Kudos' to British television and Benny Hill for pushing the naughty button. Set four offers more cheeky British humor and the beautiful hill's angels. The video transfers are well done and the audio is clean & crisp. Once again A&E Home video has done a fantastic job with this set. British audiences have always known what a comedic talent they had in Benny Hill, but I really never appreciated his brand of humor until now. With the way everything has to be politically correct, many of the Benny Hill sketches wouldn't make it to air on regular television today. I've really enjoyed every minute of this hilarious three disc set. Thanks Benny !!

These Benny Hill collections are the BEST! They never fail to disappoint!

My question is: Does his skit WONDER GRAN, based on Wonder Woman get included in this set?

It starts out with Wonder Woman spinning into an old lady who kicks the bald guy up on the roof of a ceiling. It is so hilarious!!!!
