Description
An unusual blend of humor and fictionalized memoir, the Uncle Silas stories by H.E. Bates recall his boyhood adventures with an irresistible old relative whose shenanigans include getting drunk, lying, cheating to win a bet, and seducing a neighbor's wife. "He was as lively and restless as a young colt," Bates wrote. "Reprobate, rapscallion, crafty as a monkey, liar, gardener of much cunning, drinker of infinite capacity, there was no strain of the Puritan in him. He still kept alive within him some gay, devilish spark of audacity which made him attractive to the ladies." In this 2001 Masterpiece Theater adaptation, Silas is portrayed by five-time Oscar nominated actor Albert Finney. Together, he and his nephew spurn the sophistication of Victorian-era England, and rejoice in making the town's old ladies huff and sneer. This set includes "The Wedding," "Queenie White," "The Blue Feather," "The Widder," "Silas & Goliath," and "The Revelation." In 1963, Finney first beguiled American audiences in the movie version of the classic English novel Tom Jones. Jump ahead 40 years to this series, based on the stories by H.E. Bates. Portraying the title character, a charming elderly rogue, Finney seemed to see him as the man Tom Jones would have become.

"A very enjoyable rural romp."Daily Record
