Region 2 DVD (may not be viewable outside Europe).


Richard Warwick and Joanna Lumley star in this sexy, exuberant social satire charting the travails of an angry young man reacting against his environment. Adapting his bestselling novel, director Andrew Sinclair draws on his own youthful experiences: The Breaking of Bumbo is a time-capsule portrait of military rigour competing with the era's burgeoning sexual and social freedoms, set against explosive scenes of Swinging-Sixties London. Denied a theatrical release by EMI and only intermittently shown on television, The Breaking of Bumbo is presented here uncut in a brand-new transfer from the original film elements and in its original aspect ratio. Bumbo Bailey, a newly commissioned Ensign of the Household Brigade, becomes quickly bored with the social life this entails. This boredom is rudely shattered when he falls in with the luscious Susie and her friend Jock, bourgeois revolutionaries whose principal occupation is organising anti-war demonstrations. Sensing Bumbo's general dissatisfaction with everything they try to manipulate him into a course of action which could have dire consequences for his future. SPECIAL FEATURES: [] Full frame as-filmed version of main feature [] Original theatrical trailer [] Image Gallery [] Promotional material PDFs
