Simon and Laura, Blu-ray BluRay



Peter Finch and Kay Kendall star in this British comedy from the 1950s that predicts the phenomenon of reality TV.

In the days of limited viewing options for those lucky enough to have a telly, producers come up with the novel idea of having a show based on the lives of a real-life couple - the cameras in their home showing their ups and downs.

The couple they choose for the pilot, however, Simon and Laura Foster (Finch and Kendall) prove to be less than ideal subjects.

Though the pair are stage thespians of some note, their relationship is not as it seems and in fact, Simon is boarding a train to move back to his mother's when his agent offers him the gig.

When he meets the show's writer, Janet (Muriel Pavlow), Simon attempts to woo her, upsetting Laura in the process.
