Is Your Honeymoon Really Necessary?/My Wife's Lodger, Blu-ray


Double bill of Diana Dors comedies from the early 1950s.

In 'Is Your Honeymoon Really Necessary?' (1953), Laurie Vining (Bonar Colleano) is looking forward to a romantic honeymoon in London with his new bride Gillian (Diana Decker).

Unfortunately for him, however, his ex-wife Candy (Dors) chooses this moment to question the legality of their divorce.

Lawyer Frank Bettertorn (David Tomlinson) is brought in to resolve matters - only to find himself in a compromising position of his own.

In 'My Wife's Lodger' (1952), soldier Willie Higginbotham (Dominic Roche) returns home after six years in service to find that his wife Maggie (Olive Sloane) has turned their home into a boarding house.

Willie quickly develops a bitter enmity with smooth-talking Roger the Lodger (Leslie Dwyer).

Dors plays Eunice, the Higginbothams' alluring daughter.
