Editorial Reviews

AN ALLIGATOR NAMED DAISY: For songwriter Peter Weston (Donald Sinden), life is perfect. He is set to marry Vanessa Colebrook (Diana Dors), mink upholstered daughter of wealthy Sir James Colebrook(James Robertson Justice). With her of course, goes her share of her father s millions. And Vanessa has priceless charms of her own to add to the bargain. Then Daisy, an affectionate alligator, waddles into Peter s life. An unwanted gift, Peter is determined to rid himself of Daisy. His efforts are shunned by the zoo, pet shops and the police. When Peter decides to give Daisy a dip in the Channel, another beautiful female, Moira (Jean Carson), shames him into keeping her. You guessed it! Peter frolics his way between fiancée, family and alligators until love for the proper lady finds its way into his life! Loaded with a brilliant cast of supporting actors, this film is fun for the whole family! RT: 90 min, Color & Technicolor, 1.33:1 / 4x3, NR, 1955 VALUE FOR MONEY: Chayley Broadbent (John Gregson) has inherited his father s rag business, fortune and caution with money. This is to the annoyance of Ethel (Susan Stephen), his fiancée, who has refused to marry him until he learns how to enjoy himself. So that is what he decides to do. He travels to London with friends and attends a show. There he is captivated by a stunning, blonde dancer (Diana Dors) and proposes to her as well. She has the attitude that if a man is rich, say yes, if poor, say no. Chayley is left to decide how to impress her and, more importantly, if he really wants to. Watch closely for supporting actors Joan Hickson and Donald Pleasence doing what they do best! RT: 90 min, VistaVision color, 1.85:1 / 16x9, NR, 1955 Product Specs: DVD9; Dolby Digital 2.0; RT - 182 minutes; Technicolor & VistaVision Color; Aspect Ratio: 1.33:1 - 4x3 & 1.85:1 - 16x9; Year - 1957, 1957; SRP - $19.99

5.0 out of 5 stars A Couple of Good Old British Comedies June 26, 2011
Two very nicley transferred technicolor films if you like good old British humour you will enjoy these, yes there are more dramatic roles that Diana Dors acted in, a few of which were very depressing like Yield to the Night, if you want to pass an evening with something uplifting and colourful and not have to overtax your brain you will enjoy these two films, VALUE FOR MONEY is traditional "Northern" humour which may not travel the pond to well.

2.0 out of 5 stars 2 of Diana's Duds Together March 28, 2011
With all of Diana's wonderful films that remain unreleased here in the States (and elsewhere), somehow these two very minor entries wind up being delivered. "An Alligator Named Daisy" only co-stars Diana in a small role, the real star being the annoyingly precocious Jean Carson in a tale about a stuffy Brit who winds up with an alligator and must keep it in order to keep the girl he is interested in (Carson). Blink too often and you will miss Diana's all too few onscreen appearances. "Value For Money" features Diana in a more prominent role about a cheapskate guy who falls for cabaret singer (Dors) and tries to defy his inner miser in order to woo her with the money he has plenty of. Both of these comedy "classics" are very corny and not very enjoyable, I can only recommend them to the extremely hardcore Diana Dors fan, or if such a thing exists, Jean Carson fans. Lets get some of Diana's real classics, like "The Unholy Wife" and "Yeild To The Night" released before forgettable duds like these two clunkers.
