ALL RISE! THE CRITICALLY ACCLAIMED LEGAL DRAMA RUMPOLE OF THE BAILEY HOLDS COURT ON DVD IN A NEWLY-REPACKAGED MEGASET™!
An immensely popular series broadcast on PBS from 1978 to 1992, RUMPOLE OF THE BAILEY set a new bar for all courtroom dramas to come. Flawlessly adapted by John Mortimer from his best-selling Edgar Award-winning novels and starring the esteemed Leo McKern (A Man for All Seasons), this 14-disc DVD Megaset™ includes all 42 episodes from the seven seasons of RUMPOLE OF THE BAILEY — and all for under $100! Balancing suspense and satire as deftly as the scale of justice, Horace Rumpole tirelessly defends the downtrodden while undressing the upper classes. A timeless mixture of comedy and drama, RUMPOLE OF THE BAILEY was one of television’s most celebrated courtroom dramas. Says the Sunday Times: “Rumpole is worthy to join the great gallery of English oddballs ranging from Pickwick to Sherlock Holmes to Jeeves and Bertie Wooster”.
Extras: Feature-Length Bonus Movie Rumpole’s Return; Mortimer’s Musings–An Interview with John Mortimer; McKern’s Memories with Actress Abigail McKern (Daughter of Leo McKern); Episode Introductions with John Mortimer; Spot the Barrister-Highlighting John Mortimer’s Impromptu Appearances; Newspaper Evidence; John Mortimer Biography; John Mortimer Bibliography and Selected Credits; About the Old Bailey; Official Executioners of Newgate Prison
