We have teamed up with the BFI to give away three copies of  a fantastic new Diana Dors DVD set, The Adelphi Collection, which includes Is Your Honeymoon Really Necessary & My Wife’s Lodger. Read on to enter the competition

The DVD set offers a delicious double-dose of effervescent vintage comedy starring Britain’s blondest bombshell, the one-and-only Diana Dors, at her saucy best.

Is Your Honeymoon Really Necessary sees US army airman Laurie Vining hankering after a little rest and recreation with his new bride, when his gorgeous ex, Candy (Diana Dors), arrives insisting they’re still man and wife. Wisecracking co-pilot Hank Hanlon (Sid James) and girl-shy lawyer Frank Betterton (David Tomlinson) try to lend a hand – but Laurie’s troubles have only just begun…

My Wife’s Lodger finds hapless soldier Willie Higginbottom (Dominic Roche) hoping for a hero’s welcome when he returns home after the war. But, while he was away, shifty spiv Roger the Lodger (Leslie Dwyer) got his arms around his wife and his feet under the table, and now Willie’s ditzy daughter (Diana Dors) only wants to sing, dance and jitterbug!

With striking new transfers taken from the original negatives preserved at the BFI National Archive, both films are made available here for the first time. They are packaged with a lavish illustrated 30-page booklet featuring original promotional materials and specially commissioned essays, including ‘Diana Dors, My Mother’ by Diana’s son Jason Lake, ‘David Tomlinson and I’ by David Tomlinson’s widow Audrey and ‘That Diana Dors Moment’ by Damon Wise, author of Come By Sunday: The Fabulous, Ruined Life of Diana Dors.

Release date: 21 June 2010
