Capitalising on his remarkable success in On the Buses, Reg Varney took on the contrasting role of a third-rate holiday camp entertainer dreaming of stardom in this mid-seventies tragi-comedy feature. Also starring Diana Coupland and Lee Montague, The Best Pair of Legs in the Business was adapted from an individual ITV Playhouse drama and scripted by Emmerdale Farm creator Kevin Laffan – presented here in a brand-new transfer from the original film elements, in its correct aspect ratio.

‘Sherry’ Sheridan, a middle-aged compere and drag artiste currently stationed at a caravan site, is low on talent but high on ambition. Convinced he just needs one decent break to launch himself into the big time, he’s relentlessly optimistic – but sadly unaware that his family life is crumbling around him. Can Sherry manage to secure both his job, and his marriage?
