All 4 of the classic Huggett films in one superb box set collection!
During the immediate post-war years, the Huggetts was undoubtedly Britain`s favourite film family. Unashamedly working-class they epitomised the spirit of a united nation, relishing simple pleasures with a cheery, down-to-earth smile.
Headlining Jack Warner (Dixon of Dock Green) and Kathleen Harrison (Scrooge), this DVD collection presents all four Huggetts films for the first time and showcases early successes for such beloved stars as Diana Dors, David Tomlinson, Susan Shaw and Petula Clark.
In HOLIDAY CAMP (1947) the Huggett family’s off on a spot of hols, led by dad Joe (Jack Warner). They arrive at one of Britain’s largest holiday camps and soon find their lives intertwined with those of fellow holidaymakers Jimmy Gardner (Jimmy Hanley), a 21-year-old sailor jilted at the altar, spinster Esther Harman (Flora Robson) and flashy ‘Binkie’ Hardwicke (Dennis Price), who all have a story to tell! In HERE COME THE HUGGETTS (1948), the Huggett family returns in a home grown adventure as the family is about to have the telephone installed and find a wayward niece coming to stay with them poses just as much bother. In THE HUGGETTS ABROAD (1949), the Huggett family is down on its luck, as father Joe is unemployed. Son-in-law Jimmy has a job waiting for him in South Africa, but no transport, so the whole clan sets off for the far continent in the car. Along the way they have to cope with a breakdown, a broken compass in the Sahara, diamond smugglers and even a spell in prison. In VOTE FOR HUGGETT (1948), Joe Huggett decides to enter the world of politics, causing uproar in his own household and the local community, who all pull together to help his election campaign. Look out for a young Anthony Newley in a scene with Petula Clark as the Huggett daughter Pet, rounding off a box set that you will want to watch again and again.
