Those Crackerjack Silents Don and Pete
£12.99  

Crackerjack was a much loved British childrens comedy variety show which aired on the BBC from 1955 through to 1984. A highlight of these shows were the silent comedy style sections starring Don Maclean and comedy genius Peter Glaze. Written and directed by Alan JW Bell (who is also known for directing the successful TV series Last of the Summer Wine) each week the lead actors played different parts, for example: fisherman, road sweepers, barbers, builders, farmers, window cleaners, bellboys, removals, etc, each scenario and situation ending up in hapless slapstick hilarity. Crackerjack may also have been the originator of the popular English phrase Dont get your knickers in a twist . In the Don and Pete sketches, Peter Glaze, who usually played a pompous or upper-class character, would always get exasperated with his comedy partner Don Macleans wisecracks or apparent stupidity. Maclean would then give an alliterative reply, such as Dont get your knickers in a knot or Dont get your tights in a twist , the combination of which has passed into popular culture. Peter Glaze often uttered Doh! to Dons wisecracks. Those Crackerjack Silents - Don and Pete brings 12 of these classic silent short films to DVD for the very first time. Special Features: Bonus Extras include an interview with Don Maclean entitled Don Maclean Remembers
