Copy pictureThe extras on this digitally restored DVD version of the film feature three interviews. Biographer Andy Merriman details Margaret Rutherford's tragic start in life and her late-blooming career; cartoonist Martin Rowson gives insightful and entertaining commentary on how Ronald Searle's war experiences in Burma changed his style of drawing and what it is about Searle's illustrations that make them so great; and journalist Michael Brooke explains how the film came to be made and contextualises it in the context of Launder and Gilliat's filmography.
