Description

This star-studded collection includes six Shaw masterpieces in over 11 hours of classic television. The sharp wit and discerning themes of Shaw’s work are wonderfully captured in these original productions from the BBC remastered for DVD. Arms and the Man First produced on the London stage in 1894, Arms and the Man immediately established Shaw’s reputation as one of the greatest wits in London drama. This beautifully remastered BBC production brings to life an uproarious comedy that still resonates in its critique of warfare and romance with the scintillating performance of Helena Bonham Carter. The Devil’s Disciple In The Devil’s Disciple, Shaw uses the familiar tropes of melodrama to undermine traditional beliefs and values. This original BBC production reinvigorates a classic, featuring performances by Patrick Stewart, Ian Richardson and Elizabeth Spriggs. Mrs. Warren’s Profession Written in 1893 but not performed until 1902 because of government censorship, Mrs. Warren’s Profession scandalized Victorian England with a look into a most unusual method of entering into good society. Pygmalion - Based on a classical myth, Pygmalion has become in its own right a classic of the contemporary stage and screen. Addressing the complexity of human relationships and society, it is the story of a simple flower girl who is tutored to be a genteel upper class lady. This charming BBC production stars Lynn Redgrave as Eliza Doolittle. Heartbreak House A rollicking romp through the minefields of romantic entanglement, Heartbreak House is Shaw’s passionate response to World War I and features the endearing performance of John Geilguld. Vivaciously alive with dangerous flirtations, this vibrant game of hearts and philosophies will keep you chasing the key to life and love. The Millionairess Shaw’s glittering farce The Millionairess reveals the true relations between class, capital, power and labor. Starring Maggie Smith, Tom Baker and Charles Gray, this original BBC production brings the hilarity and searing commentary of Shaw’s work to vivid life.
