OLD MOTHER RILEY'S NEW VENTURE:
Music-hall comedian Arthur Lucan first brought his "drag" character Old Mother Riley to the screen in 1937. Lucan went on to star in 14 films as the rambunctious Irish washerwoman, while Lucan's wife Kitty McShane co-starred as Old Mother Riley’s daughter, who had a habit of bursting into song whether the audience liked it or not. The first series entry, aptly titled Old Mother Riley, found the title character put in charge of managing a huge luxury hotel. A jewel theft seriously compromises Mother Riley's new position, but everything is resolved in a climactic slapstick-fest, replete with pie-throwing.
79 mins, B&W, 1.33:1, 1949, Not Rated

OLD MOTHER RILEY HEADMISTRESS:
When the old lady buys the school with its revolutionary group of students, Mother Riley is obliged to deal with a gang of crooks so shady their family trees never knew what Autumn was! Riley manages to turn the tables on the hapless hoodlums and the wacky film ends in a riot of crazy comedy.
75 mins, B&W, 1.33:1, 1950, Not Rated

OLD MOTHER RILEY'S JUNGLE TREASURE:

Despite a gang of crooks and angry natives being hot on their heels, Old Mother Riley manages as ever to save the day!
76 mins, B&W, 1.33:1, 1951, Not Rated

MOTHER RILEY MEETS THE VAMPIRE:
