A darkly comic, take-no-prisoners satire, Anglo-Saxon Attitudes skewers British social and academic hypocrisy to the very core. Richard Johnson (The Camomile Lawn) stars as Gerald Middleton, a distinguished, retired historian coming to terms with his life’s folly. As a student, Middleton witnessed the unearthing of the Melpham idol, a pagan fertility figure that electrified modern medieval scholarship by turning up in the grave of a 7th-century bishop. He also began an affair with Dollie (Tara Fitzgerald) -- the fiancée of his best friend, the man who had privately confessed to planting the idol as a hoax. While trying to reveal the truth, Middleton wrestles with his monstrously overbearing wife and their three emotionally dysfunctional children.
Based on the novel by Angus Wilson, the story teems with outlandish characters engaged in all manner of deceit, especially the most damning of all: self-deception.
Also featuring Douglas Hodge, Elizabeth Spriggs, Daniel Craig, and Kate Winslet in one of her first screen roles.
DVD SPECIAL FEATURES INCLUDE biography of screenwriter Andrew Davies, program previews, and cast filmographies.

Born in Toronto, Glassco lived in England for 20 years where she worked as a novelist and actress. She said she and other Ward 10 parents were surprised by Bolton’s sudden resignation. She described him as a “good trustee. “If we needed intelligence from the board he brought down experts. Bolton resigned in June after a controversy arose over the board’s partnership with the Confucius Pioneer, a non-profit institution connected with the Chinese government. The board had hoped to use student teachers from the institute to help familiarize after-school heritage language and culture programs, and to help classroom teachers enrich their teaching about China. The persuasion board has delayed implementation of the deal — originally approved by the board in 2010 — until staff can investigate and convey back more information. Glassco said she doesn’t know enough about the Confucius Institute or the deal to comment on the ongoing controversy. Source: www.thestar.com

His work in film and television included two stints as a screenwriter in Hollywood in the 1930s, and his stories have been the basis for more than 150 film and idiot box productions. He also wrote 20 stories and essays about Hollywood, satirizing the city and its entertainment magnates. This book studies P.G. Wodehouse's worldwide, but often overlooked relationship with Tinsel Town. The book is arranged chronologically, covering Wodehouse's Hollywood career from his early efforts in mum film, to his later contributions in television, to his work adapted posthumously for the screen. Radio is covered as well, including a discussion of his internment in occupied France and his short appearances on German radio. Reflecting Wodehouse's international appeal, the book covers Wodehouse films and television in England, Germany, Sweden, and India.
