FawltyTowers - The Complete Collection (30th Anniversary)
FawltyTowers was famously inspired by an unbelievably rude hotel proprietor John Cleese encountered whilst filming with Monty Python. Written by John Cleese and Connie-Booth FawltyTowers remains one of the most inspired and best-loved TV series of all time.Cast to perfection the series found Cleese playing much put-upon Torquay hotel owner Basil Fawlty Prunella Scales as his domineering wife Sybil Connie Booth as Polly the dependable maid and Andrew Sachs in the role of Manuel the non-comprehending...
What did Basil Fawlty fail to avoid mentioning? Why did Sybil keep snagging her cardies? Where was Polly on the night of the great wedding anniversary disaster? And what is the Spanish word for "donkey"?The answer to all these questions can be found in this, the complete and unexpurgated scripts of FawltyTowers--the most celebrated "Brit-com" of all time, and the show was voted the top UK television series ever by the British Film Institute. The snobbish, manic Basil...his over-coiffeured, domineering...
Basil Fawlty, as created and performed by John Cleese, is the rudest, most boorish, most hilariously obnoxious man on the face of the planet. What a natural for a TV sitcom! His screen wife, Sybil (Prunella Scales), put it best in the episode "The Psychiatrist": "You're either crawling all over them, licking their boots, or spitting poison at them like some Benzedrine puff adder." He mockingly replies, "Just trying to enjoy myself, dear."
