The March Hare - 1956 British Film
26 August 2008 | by ericglasbySee all my reviews

I saw The March Hare at HOYTS Double Bay Theatre in Sydney's Eastern Suburbs during 1957 when in High School at Bondi, and recall it with fondness as very funny and quite entertaining. With Martita Hunt and other cast members of similar standing, the entertainment quality is obvious. Have been unable, over the years, to view it again as it seems to have disappeared completely. A pristine new widescreen (CinemaScope) DVD is well overdue, noting that the perennial Three Men In a Boat, also a British film, from the same year (1956) has just been remastered to DVD in England. Three Men has been aired on various TV Channels in Sydney many times, most recently on the ABC couple weeks back but The March Hare seems never to have been aired at all! Still waiting and hoping.
