Black Adder - The Ultimate Collection
15,99 € *
zzgl. 1,49 € Versand

British comic actor Rowan Atkinson plays all five versions of Edmund, beginning with the villainous and cowardly Duke of Edinburgh, whose scheming mind and awful haircut seem to stand him in good stead to become the next Archbishop of Canterbury - a deadly occupation if ever there was one. Among tales of royal dethronings, Black Death, witch-smellers (who root out spell-makers with their noses), and ghosts, Edmund is a perennial survivor who never quite gets ahead in multiple episodes.Jump to the Elizabethan era and Atkinson picks up the saga as Lord Edmund, who is perpetually courting favour from mad Queen Bess (Miranda Richardson) and is always walking a tightrope from which he can either gain the world or lose his head. Subjected to bizarre services for her majesty (at one point, Edmund is asked to do for potatoes what Sir Walter Raleigh did for tobacco), Edmund - like his ancestor - can never quite fulfill his larger ambitions.The next incarnation finds Edmund in Regency England in the late-18th-century. This time, Blackadder is a mere butler to the idiotic Prince Regent (Hugh Laurie in a brilliantly buffoonish performance) and is caught in various misadventures with Samuel Johnson, Shakespearean actors, the Scarlet Pimpernel, and William Pitt the younger. With a brief stop in Victorian London for a Christmas special, the series concludes with several episodes set during the Great War.In the fourth and final chapter of the chronicles of the Blackadder dynasty Edmund is a career army officer, but a scoundrel all the same; shirking his duties whenever possible and taking advantage of any opportunity for undeserved reward. Set in a much darker period of history, Edmund is doing all he can to escape the trenches of the First World War and the dreaded order to go 'over the top'. This award-winning series is renowned for the closing moments of the final episode, a bold and highly poignant last scene when Blackadder and his men finally do charge into No-Man's-Land.Co-written by Ben Elton and Richard Curtis, Blackadder included some of the biggest names in British comedy – Rowan Atkinson, Stephen Fry, Hugh Laurie, Tony Robinson, Rik Mayall, Adrian Edmondson and Miranda Richardson. Across all four series there were guest appearances from the likes of Robbie Coltrane, Peter Cook, Tom Baker, Brian Blessed, Warren Clarke, Nigel Planer, and many other well-known, highly respected performers.Special Features: Brand New Audio Commentaries with Rowan Atkinson & John Lloyd, Stephen Fry, Ben Elton & Richard Curtis, Tony Robinson & Tim McInnerny.

The Road to Camelot: Inside JFK's Five-Year Cam...
9,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

A behind-the-scenes, revelatory account of John F. Kennedy's wily campaign for the White House, beginning with his bold failed attempt to win the vice presidential nomination in 1956. A young and undistinguished junior plots his way to the presidency and changes the way we nominate and elect presidents. John F. Kennedy and his young warriors invented modern presidential politics. They turned over accepted wisdom that his Catholicism was a barrier to winning an election and plotted a successful course to that constituency. They hired Louis Harris - a polling entrepreneur - to become the first presidential pollster. They twisted arms, and they charmed. They lined up party bosses, young enthusiasts, and fellow Catholics and turned the traditional party inside out. The last-minute invitation to Lyndon B. Johnson to be vice president in 1956 surprised them only because they had failed to notice that he wanted it. They invented The Missile Gap in the Cold War and out-glamoured Richard Nixon in the TV debates. Now, acclaimed, award-winning journalists Tom Oliphant and Curtis Wilkie provide the most comprehensive account, based on personal reporting, interviews, and archives. The authors have examined more than 1,600 oral histories at the John F. Kennedy library; they've interviewed surviving sources, including JFK's sister Jean Smith; and they draw on their own interviews with insiders including Ted Sorensen and Arthur Schlesinger Jr. From the start of the campaign in 1955, when his father tried to persuade President Johnson to run with JFK as his running mate, The Road to Camelot reveals him as a tough, shrewd political strategist who kept his eye on the prize. This is one of the great campaign stories of all time, appropriate for today's political climate. 1. Language: English. Narrator: L. J. Ganser.

ggf. zzgl. Versand

Get all four Resort Romances in one great boxed set. Cuban Moon Lisa Kleyson didn't intend to hook up with anybody while on her first Caribbean vacation, but when she lays eyes on the groom's brother, her best laid plans go out the window. Dr. Hank Anderson will do his duty to his brother, but he'd much rather be spending time with the music teacher who's caught his eye.  Hank's pursuit is booby-trapped with a stalking maid-of-honor, a Gilligan-worthy boat tour and bad crab cakes, but he is determined to catch Lisa and convince her to start a romance under the Cuban moon. Mexican Sunsets When tourist extraordinaire Dena Thompson spots Curtis Schuster in the airport, she picks him as her vacation project. Curtis wants a quiet week on the resort, but every time he turns down the nutty blonde, disaster strikes. Curtis quickly discovers that having adventures is fun when Dena is involved, but by the time he realizes this, they only have a couple days left. Will their vacation romance last once they get home? Dominican Stars All Julie Beresford wants is some time away to make the most important decision of her teaching career. Contractor Dennis Wilson is supposed to be on a father-son bonding trip, but after that turns into a solo vacation at the last minute, Julie is a delightful distraction from the disappointment.

Can they find a way to be together when both their futures are up in the air?  Mayan Midnights Tim's wingman duties are simple: keep the cute but quirky Angie occupied while his friend makes a play for her cousin. Angie didn't expect to catch the attention of a Hollywood producer while on vacation, but Tim's a great partner in crime as she explores the Mayan Riviera. However, when she learns their 'dates' have simply been Tim keeping her busy, she's heartbroken, leaving him only two days to prove his interest in her is genuine before he loses her forever.
