But after setting out on their quest, taking in watering holes such as 'The Two Headed Dog' and 'The Famous Cock', the friends' objective soon pales into insignificance when they realise that the fate of the entire human race may ultimately rest in their hands. In 'Hot Fuzz' (2007), when a hotshot young London sergeant, Nicholas Angel (Pegg)'s arrest record puts the whole Metropolitan force to shame, his superiors shunt him to a rural posting hoping they've heard the last of him. The sleepy hamlet he's posted to however, behind all the lace-curtain politeness, is a hotbed of grisly murder and vigilante-ism. His diligence and character sits ill with the locals - all except the Sergeant's layabout son Danny Butterman (Frost), who's a huge fan of the cop buddy movie genre. The pair bond and end up taking on a sinister cult of local pensioners in a guns-blazing, granny-kicking, rocket-launching gore-fest aimed at restoring order. 'Shaun Of The Dead' (2004) fuses the style (and copious bloodshed) of classic zombie films with observational suburban comedy. Shaun (Pegg) is a useless but likeable thirty-something who works in an electronics shop in Crouch End. He doesn't get much respect from his fellow staff, even though he's standing in as temporary boss; his girlfriend Liz (Kate Ashfield) has had enough of his lack of direction and penchant for downing pints in the local pub; and he doesn't get on with his stepdad (Bill Nighy). Things get worse when the living dead make their appearance, threatening to spread their zombie curse across the nation. Will Shaun be able to rise from his sofa to save the lives of the two women he loves - Liz and his dear old mum?

R493 Discovery Miles 4 930 Shipped within 7 - 11 working days

School For Scoundrels sees in Terry-Thomas in his quintessential role of cad and bounder, using his lecherous ways to steal the heart of April away from her hapless suitor Henry Palfrey (Ian Carmichael). Sick of being one of life’s losers, Palfrey enrols at the college of ‘Lifemanship’ under the tutor ledge of the incomparable Alastair Sim and proceeds to learn the arts of one-upmanship and gamesmanship in an effort to outdo his caddish rivals and turn his life around.

Private's Progress teams Terry-Thomas once more with Ian Carmichael, this time in an army set comedy. Carmichael plays Stanley Windrush, a bookish and introverted flunkie from Officer candidate school, who is thrown into the deep end of rough and ready army life and must contend with rough-hewn fellow private Cox (Richard Attenborough), an eccentric crackpot Major Hitchcock (Thomas) and a nonplussed commanding officer played by Dennis Price.

Make Mine Mink is based on Peter Coke's West End comedy Breath of Spring and concerns the blundering excursions into crime of a bunch of pinheaded amateurs, who specialize in lifting valuable furs and apparently devoting the loot to charity. Terry-Thomas plays one of a group of lodgers who all team up as the thieves as a convenient escape from the meaningless routine of their daily lives. Along with their aging landlady Dame Appleby (Athene Seyler), the misfits conspire to carry out a series of daring raids, keeping the only ex-con member of the household in the dark – the beautiful housekeeper played by Billie Whitelaw.

Bungling thieves are the order of the day once again in Too Many Crooks that also stars fellow Comic Icon Sid James. When their planned robbery of the safe lecherous millionaire Billy Gordon (Terry-Thomas) actually results in the kidnap of his wife, Gordon couldn’t be happier to be rid of her. Refusing to pay the ransom sets the stage for Mrs Gordon’s sweet revenge…

The Naked Truth is the third in the trilogy of films here scripted by Michael Pertwee. Co-starring Peter Sellers in one of his early roles, the film centres around the exploits of four celebrities, including Terry-Thomas as politician Lord Mayley, who band together to assassinate from blackmailing low-life reporter Dennis (Dennis Price).

Brothers In Law sees Terry-Thomas star alongside Richard Attenborough and Ian Carmichael in this comedy about an hapless newly qualified barrister and his first disastrous appearances in court as he encounters a succession of cantankerous judges.

US Ambassador Robert Thorn (Gregory Peck) is persuaded to substitute a newborn baby whose mother has died in childbirth for his own stillborn son. By the age of five the child, Damien, seems to be exerting a malevolent influence on the Thorn household, suffering a violent fit when he is taken to church and causing his nanny to hang herself. Thorn searches for an answer to his son's behaviour and meets maverick priest Father Brennan (Patrick Troughton), who tries to convince him that Damien is in fact the Antichrist and must be stopped at all costs. The Ambassador at first dismisses this as the crazy rantings of a religious maniac, but subsequent events suggest that maybe the priest had a point.

Triple bill featuring the first three 'Omen' films. The saga begins with 'The Omen' (1976), when US Ambassador Robert Thorn (Gregory Peck) is persuaded to substitute a newborn baby, whose mother has died in childbirth, for his own stillborn son. By the age of five, the child, Damien (Harvey Stephens), seems to be exerting a malevolent influence on the Thorn household, suffering a violent fit when he is taken to church and causing his nanny to hang herself. Thorn searches for an answer to his son's behaviour and meets maverick priest Father Brennan (Patrick Troughton), who tries to convince him that Damien is in fact the Antichrist and must be stopped at all costs. The Ambassador at first dismisses this as the crazy rantings of a religious maniac, but subsequent events suggest that maybe the priest had a point. The second film, 'Damien - Omen 2' (1978), picks up events a few years later, with the now-orphaned Damien (Jonathan Scott-Taylor) turning 13 and living with his adoring aunt and uncle. Aunt Marion (Lee Grant) is the first to suspect there is more to the young devil than adolescent angst, leading to her swift dispatch by a killer raven. As for Damien, he is making his mark at military school, and is dismayed to discover his true demonic identity - but not for long. The third film, 'Omen 3 - The Final Conflict' (1981), finds Damien (Sam Neill) all grown up and heading a multinational company. He is about to be appointed US Ambassador to England, a position which will enable him to take over the world and thus fulfil the terrible forecasts of scripture. But there is opposition in the form of a bunch of monks with sacred daggers who will do everything necessary to prevent Satan's enthronement.

Jim Henson double bill. In 'Labyrinth', suburban girl Sarah (Jennifer Connelly) is forced to babysit her baby brother, and she wishes for goblins to take him away. When her wish comes true, the Goblin King (David Bowie) tells her she can rescue her brother only by negotiating the labyrinth that leads to the Goblin Castle. In 'The Dark Crystal', Jen, the last of an elfin race, can only restore light to the world by retrieving the missing shard of the Dark Crystal. His quest is complicated by evil forces who want to use the crystal to destroy all life.
