Banana Ridge DVD Cover

Aldwych Theatre farceur Robertson Hare and character comedian Alfred Drayton reprise their original stage roles in two classic screen comedies. Both films are brand-new transfers from the original film elements, in their as-exhibited theatrical aspect ratio. Only one copy of Aren't Men Beasts is known to exist and its soundtrack is incomplete – for these two mute sections we have included English subtitles.

A screen adaptation of Ben Travers' celebrated and enduring farce – a wonderfully mischievous comedy of disputed paternity and caddishness. Two businessmen have the shock of their lives when a woman appears out of their past bearing a 23-year-old son – and one of them may be the father!
