noel coward story of a lonely old lady
30 October 2008 | by ksf-2See all my reviews

Part of the seven disk DVD collection of Noel Coward's work from BBC. Not many recognize-able faces in the cast for the U.S. viewers; Hugh Laurie (TV show "House" and British series "Jeeves & Wooster") is Bobby. Our star, Patricia Hayes, is Mrs. Capper, a house-keeper who talks to herself, and is celebrating her birthday. Patricia Hayes was also the old-lady witness who lost her dogs in "Fish Called Wanda", and worked with Benny Hill extensively over the years. Mrs. Capper just wants to relax in her own house and quietly reminisce, but she keeps getting interrupted by friends and neighbors. Not much of a story, really, but its a relaxing, harmless way to spend an hour. Directed by Mike Ockrent, who only directed a few things, and seems to have left us younger than most.
