This film is a delightful time capsule about ordinary England in the 1960s. Herman's Hermits and a greyhound are the leads.
I wasn't born when this movie came out, and I was very entertained at its depiction of late 60s England. I am so happy that fashions today don't have such emphasis on orange! I wanted to see the film because I always enjoy belatedly catching up on what was "in" with young audiences in decades past, and I also like seeing movies that are a time capsule into a certain place and time. Plus I love British bands. I did like the film itself, and one pleasant surprise was that it turned out to be more like an actual musical than just a series of a popular band's performances loosely strung together. Some of the songs aren't even sung by the band. Granted, one of the last songs did hurt my ears! It was sung by the elderly characters in a key way too high for them. But one of them was Stanley Holloway, so that's okay. I also liked the way that being a band was secondary, and their main drive was to race Herman's beloved greyhound. I don't want to give anything away, but the scene where the title song was sung was adorable. Just some minor flaws- I was irritated by the random character of "Percy", even if he did have a heroic moment. Also, I didn't really like how they did the end credits. I'd guess it wasn't intentional, but showing that one girl repeatedly made it seem like Herman was regretting his choice on which girl he ended up with. And finally, some of the jokes are *really* lame!But anyway, fun film, good music, would recommend!
a total lie..then a truth.
this movie caused every riot in 1968. people who want to remember the 60s fondly think of something like this. you pick which is which.
Mrs. BROWN, a great film, starring a Greyhound
Greyhound ( greyt- hounds) lovers and those that appreciate a greyt story will enjoy this vintage gem. The music, styling and art direction are very compelling and for those that appreciate style from the hip 60's will dig this film. The opening scene is memorable, a greyhound riding in a sidecar of an Indian motorcycle on the way to practice. I have heard that this is a true story of Mrs. BROWN. This film gets top rating and I hope that it's show more often.
a lovely film
One of a kind, this is an understated masterpiece. For all ages and for the ages.
An underrated Sixties artifact
This is a beautifully photographed, Big Sixties style musical, not a low-budget quickie, and it's well worth owning. A fantastic Graham Gouldman song, "It's Nice To Be Out In The Morning" kicks things off, and between the dazzling Mod fashions, homespun all-ages wisdom (Mona Washbourne is present--need we say more?), Peter Noone and the Hermits' charm..."Gone With the Wind" it's not, but as a colorful, kid-friendly taste of Swinging England for those of us who were too young to be there, it's great. I once had this film in VHS as an 80s kid, but no longer. DVD it, please!

VCD or DVD of Mrs. Brown
- Nina Gomez
Please release Mrs. Brown, you've got a lovely daughter on VCD or DVD format because I love watching movies at home. I would rather have genuine and original VCD/DVDs because I do not buy pirated versions of movies or music. It is better quality and I don't support the illegal trade called "piracy". Most importantly I'm a noonatic - a Herman's Hermits fan and I love Peter Noone. He's so cute!
