The Evelyn Waugh Collection
The sidesplitting "Masterpiece Theatre" adaptation of Evelyn Waugh's novel "Scoop" (1987) examines the cutthroat world of journalism. After being mistaken for a war correspondent by his addled editor, a wildlife writer is sent to cover escalating violence in East Africa. Finding himself on unfamiliar territory, the novice reporter struggles to deliver the story of a lifetime. Michael Maloney, Nicola Pagett, Denholm Elliott star. Then, from Waugh's pen comes the elegant drama "A Handful Of Dust" (1988), stretching from the parlors and bedrooms of '30s London to the South American jungle, as a married couple finds their life together coming apart at the seams. James Wilby, Kristin Scott Thomas, Anjelica Huston, Rupert Graves, and Alec Guinness star. 3 3/4 hrs. total on two discs. Standard/Widescreen; Soundtrack: English Dolby Digital stereo; Subtitles: English (SDH); biography; filmographies.
