1975 movie "Three Men in a Boat" by Sunny on 13 January 2003 5:51am
Does anyone know where we might possibly find Michael Palin's 1975 movie called "Three Men in a Boat" ?
We'd prefer that it's VHS, because the people watching it are in America.
But if only PAL is possible, they could try to transfer it from PAL to VHS.

Thank you!

It appears to be out of print or whatever the video equivalent of unavailable for purchase is


It seems to have been made for the BBC so best try them first
With a director like Stephen Frears and a writer like Tom Stoppard mingling his wit with Jerome K. Jerome's classic of Edwardian manners, you'd think this would have been a joy to be a part of. Well, you'd be absolutely right. Filmed on location on the Thames upper reaches during one of the longest and most glorious summers which come infrequently to England, and working with Tim Curry and Michael Palin as well...!! Well, you don't know what you've got till it's gone.... one day Stephen came to find me to give me some ideas for the next scene and he ended up by asking me if everything was O.K. ''Well" I said, "I feel bad about saying this, but I'm beginning to feel that the other two men in the boat are getting maybe a bit more coverage, over and above the demands of the script, than I am." He looked at me gravely, as he had looked at me years before when he was Lindsay Anderson's assistant on Julius Caesar, but that's another story. Then he just burst out laughing. He stopped after a while when he could see I was a little peeved and said, "I'm sorry, but you see, the other two men in the boat have both said exactly the same thing to me!"

I still think Tim Curry's best roll was Dr. Frank-N-Futer in the Rocky Horror Picture Show. I LOVE that movie... But this looks interesting...

*Does the Time Warp*
