I realise that this wont appeal to the majority as it is quite an old film. But it is a great old film, and it's based on Joe Orton's excellent play.
An attractive young charmer by the name of Mr. Sloane weasels his way into the lives of a middle-aged brother and sister, while trying to disguise the truth about his unpleasant past. This black comedy is based on a work by Joe Orton, the taboo-tweaking British playwright who delighted in loading his dialogue with satirical insights and racy double entendres. Indeed, sexual tension drives the plot from the very beginning, when the lonely Kath (Beryl Reid) spots Mr. Sloane (Peter McEnery) in a cemetery and invites him to become a boarder. Despite the age difference, Sloane coyly plays along with her flirtations for his own benefit. Their fun seems over when Kath's brother Ed (Harry Andrews) shows up, but the prim and proper gentleman also takes a shine to Sloane, hiring him as his chauffeur and taking particular interest in the young man's tight leather uniform. Kath and Ed's elderly father, however, develops a strong hatred of Sloane, and accuses to him of being involved in an old, unsolved murder. Though the translation to the screen is somewhat uneven, the controversial elements of Orton's text are mostly preserved, and his gleefully amoral tone survives intact.

You're right ofcourse. I shall check all future DVD posts with you Jezza; you know just to make sure it passes your own personal worthiness of whether it should be posted or not.:p

And I don't mean to sound harsh but: -
1) If you haven't heard of Joe Orton then you need to do some research and broaded your imagination.
2) How can it be pointless?
3) How can a DVD for £2.99 not be a bargain? Especially if you are a fan of 1960's farces, which I am; and many other people are?
4) I notice you don't post your criticisms on any of the moderators £2.99/£3.99 DVD posts.:whistling:
5) What does it matter to you who posts what and why?
6) Why on earth have you started trolling and leaving your "I don't mean to sound harsh but....." (when clearly you do) comments on my posts?
7) If the post/deal is, in your opinion, "pointless" why do you feel the need to post a comment in the first place? Why not just ignore it, as per the HUKD rules

You're just randonly posting cheap DVD's!!!! If you disagree then fine, but i am allowed to bring it to your attention and question is surely? This IS a forum after all!

Yes, there are £2.99/£3.99 DVD's, but each shop varies. This site is used to find out where you can get them cheapest. Same with CD's/games/household stuff/toys etc. Point is, someone might be going to buy it at Amazon/Play/ Borders and be paying well over the odds eg http://www.borders.co.uk/dvd/entertaining-mr-sloane/2156863/ . All common places to buy DVD's. All WAY more expensive. So, they come here, see it's cheaper. Or they might see the deal and think "oooh, that's a bargain, I'll have that" That's why I use this website, and that's why I post deals. Film and music is my thing. That's what I know about. So that's why I post mainly DVD's/CD's. I don't get any gain from posting deals do I? Just helping folk find the cheapest. And this is a great price. If it was a film you really liked you'd be saying quite different.

I'm sorry but i only see the random posting of multiple £2.99/£3.99 DVD's every day from you, just as well everyone doesn't do it or this site would be completely clogged up with cheap tosh!
It's nice to have variety of genuine bargains posted on here rather than stuff being spewed out just cos it's under £4!! We'll agree to disagree though.
Oh and for the record, i already own this on DVD and think it's a superb film!
