Product Description

Peter Cook and Dudley Moore were a major part of the new comedy era in the '60s and '70s. When the pair wrote and conceived Not Only... But Also a great partnership developed. They would talk into a microphone and then record and review their impromptu speech developing parts that had promise and discarding the rest. The scripts were not written in stone and half of the charm of the show is the pair's ad-libs and the laughter they were trying to hold back. Six episodes have been compiled from what remains in the BBC Archive of this classic comedy. Guests include John Lennon and Barry Humphries.System Requirements:Running Time: 170 minutesFormat: DVD MOVIE Genre: TELEVISION/BBC UPC: 883929024131 Manufacturer No: 1000039478

I don't know if I laughed more or sat in greater awe at Dudley Moore's serious chops as a jazz musician. Not Only were the BBC a bunch of skinflints for erasing the master tapes of Cook and Moore, they were Also cultural vandals for robbing us of more of this stellar material.

5.0 out of 5 stars Not Only...But Darn it! Oct. 12 2008
By Donna M. Tindall - Published on

I loved Peter Cook and Dudley Moore, especially together. This DVD showcases the beautiful black and white [and some color] program they were well known for, not so much here in America back in the mid 1960's, but mostly in England. Being a John Lennon fan since 1964 it is wonderful to see a near mint copy of the visualization of the poem from his first book, In His Own Write, that being, Def Ted,Danoota and Me.
For fans, old and new alike, it breaks your heart when you read in the enclosed booklet that the BBC erased [wiped is the technical term] the master video tapes in the early 1970's due to some silly notion that they, the BBC, couldn't afford new reels of videotape and Peter Cook himself offered to BUY NEW REELS in order to keep the BBC from wiping the tapes, hence, the program, Not Only..But Also, would be eliminated like it never had been in the first place.
I don't really know how the material on this DVD survived, it must have hidden itself in a warehouse somewhere under the title "BBC Documentary:
How To Tell When It's Raining".
Shame on them for destroying the masters of this funny, funny, series.
Now, with both men gone forever, if you enjoyed their unique humor as I have, buy this DVD and enjoy what once was. We'll never see their likes again. Darn it!

4.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic! But... July 20 2009

You really can't go wrong with this DVD. "Not Only...But Also" is one of those beautiful moments in time with pure comedy genius. Cook and Moore are just as perfect together as Martin and Lewis or Laurel and Hardy. My only complaint is that there is so much footage out there that is NOT on the DVD. I know that most of the series was recorded over, which was the BBC's policy at the time, however, I know that John Lennon was on the show several times. They do have ONE of his scenes on this DVD (the classic "Deaf Ted, Danoota and Me"), but "Dan the doorman" is nowhere to be found, nor is "Good Dog Nigel" and several other poems of Johns that I believe were even on the same show that they featured him on the DVD. I know the footage wasn't recorded over because it's on YouTube, so why isn't it on this DVD? I think it's time to put together a new package. Other than that, this DVD rocks!

Some of it is schlocky, but on the whole, these 2 guys doing comedy were superior to most of Monty Python's bloated output.

What can one say about Cook and Moore? They were supremely funny. The only reason I didn't give this dvd the additional star is, they cut off C&M's most famous skit. One Leg Too Few (which appears in the short doc about the two of them). Would have liked to see the entre sketch. That's a quibble though in this age of You Tube. Enjoy this disc. It's marvelous to see these boys again and to see Dud play the piano! Man, he swung. Great disc all around.
