2. Stepping Out [1991] [DVD] - Special Offer Price £9.95

Liza Minnelli in a role that contains definite shades of Cabaret's Sally Bowles as a Broadway hoofer attempting to transform a bunch of near-hopeless amateurs into a crack dancing troupe. All stereotypes are firmly in place, including Julie Walters as a germ-obsessed housewife and Shelley Winters as the cantankerous pianist, who rolls her eyes at every missed step. What you expect is precisely what you get from Gilbert, but, despite its sheer obviousness, this has pockets of great fun. Was £14.95, our special Christmas Price today is £9.95

Stars Liza Minelli and Julie Walters.

9. Back Home [1990] [DVD] - Special Offer Price £9.95

Dripping with Disney sentimentality, yet also benefiting from the studio's customarily impeccable production values, this TV movie will probably prove more popular with grandparents than youngsters. That's because it's set in the immediate postwar period when families were reunited and austerity was briefly forgotten. However young Hayley Carr has nothing to celebrate for, having spent the war in the States, she no longer feels she belongs in Blighty, especially as mother Hayley Mills is more preoccupied with her husband's homecoming. Decently played by a cast of familiar faces and directed by Scot Piers Haggard, this has the comforting sweetness of a good mint humbug.

Stars Hayley Mills and Hayley Carr.
