The Knack…and how to get it

22 December 2015 2:28 PM, PST | Trailers from Hell | See recent Trailers from Hell news »

Meet Rita Tushingham, the cutest comic (and dramatic) actress of swinging London. This '60s masterpiece applies director Richard Lester's talent for comedy to a new kind of quirky, youthful sex farce. Shy boy Michael Crawford takes lessons on how to dominate women from Ray Brooks, when all he has to do to win cute Rita Tushingham is be himself. With a glorious music score by John Barry. The style is everything; the movie was extremely influential. The Knack... and how to get it Blu-ray Kl Studio Classics 1965 / B&W / 1:66 widescreen / 84 min. / Street Date January 12, 2015 / available through Kino Lorber / 29.95 Starring Rita Tushingham, Ray Brooks, Michael Crawford, Donal Donnelly, Jane Birkin, Jacqueline Bisset, Charlotte Rampling. Cinematography David Watkin Production Designer Assheton Gorton Film Editor Antony Gibbs Original Music John Barry Written by Charles Wood from the play by Ann Jellicoe Produced by Oscar Lewenstein Directed by Richard Lester

Every reunion is an attempt to recapture the past, but the particular alchemy of sketch comedy makes getting the band back together an especially tricky proposition. The members of Monty Python and The State may have worked together fruitfully on subsequent projects, but they've been smart enough not to go all the way back to the well the way The Kids in the Hall did with the lackluster "Death Comes to Town." "W/ Bob & David" tries to recapture the magic of "Mr. Show With Bob and David," the storied sketch show that ran on HBO from 1995 to 1998. Bob Odenkirk and David Cross return for the Netflix revival, consisting of four half-hour episodes that will be available after midnight tonight, as does much of the original recurring cast: Paul F. Tompkins, Mary Lynn Rajskub, Tom Kenny, Jill Talley, Jay Johnston, John Ennis, Brian Posehn, and Karen Kilgariff. (Absent: Jack Black and Sarah Silverman, »
