Born Alfred Hawthorne Hill and taking his stage name from Jack Benny (his favorite comedian), Benny Hill was all at once sly, witty, silly and randy-a one-man circus of slapstick, puns, songs and more. And if you're a fan of The Benny Hill Show, you know exactly what we're talking about! 1974/color/87 min/NR/fullscreen.

Picture and sound quality are not the best, but considering the age of the material I wasn't expecting HiDef.
Not really the "best" of Benny Hill in my view, it wouldn't be possible to condense 30 years on television into an 87 minute DVD, but you certainly get a flavor of his material, and talent.
I suppose you could term The Benny Hill Show, an amalgam of slapstick, burlesque and double entendres in a format that included live comedy and filmed segments, and the selection on this DVD represents most of that.
Some of the material has aged better than others, and for a US audience some of the "British" aspects of the comedic value may be lost.
I purchased this for $5, and it is often available from aftermarket sellers for as little as this.
If you're a fan and want a walk down memory lane, or if you just wanted to know what people are talking about when they wax lyrical about the old days and Benny Hill, then this is a good place to start.
Features a couple of classic "run off" sketches to the familiar tune of Boots Randolph's "Yakety Sax", which is so strongly associated to the show that it is commonly referred to as "The Benny Hill Theme" - you can Google it!
