Japanese VHS release of this UK comedy written by Michael Palin and produced by George Harrison's production company HandMade Films. In 1905, after 10 years of missionary work in Africa, the Rev. Charles Fortesque (played by Michael Palin) is recalled to England, where his bishop gives him his new assignment – to minister to London's prostitutes.. The original sleeve artwork is in good condition with some stickers and minimal wear along with some fading to the spine. VHS tape has been previewed and plays great with no noticeable issues or problems. Black plastic clamshell case is in good condition.
As per most vintage Japanese film releases on vhs or dvd, this film may contain some small optical pixelation or fogging to obscure any lower full frontal nudity.
