|Arthur is the world's richest alcoholic. But all is not well in his pickled paradise. He will lose access to the family's great wealth if he doesn't marry the uptight debutante picked out for him by his parents. He's not in love with her, doesn't even like her. What's worse is he's in love with a wacky shoplifter.|
Editor's NoteArthur, a very rich, drunken ne'er-do-well, falls in love with a working-class shoplifter just as he is scheduled to marry a properly pedigreed society member. But if he doesn't marry the heiress, he will not inherit a $750 million trust. So Arthur turns to his loyal butler, who is slowly dying, for help. The butler wishes to see Arthur prevail and so manipulates a situation in which the true lovers will come together--and get the loot. But that is a lot easier said than done.ARTHUR is a charming romantic comedy that features the role that Dudley Moore was born to play. Whether taking limo trips through Central Park with prostitutes, playing with his train set, having a bath in a top hat, or wanting just a tuna-fish sandwich, Arthur, perfectly portrayed by Moore, is one of the most likable onscreen characters in cinema history. John Gielgud as his loyal, dry-witted butler is an out-and-out riot. And Liza Minnelli turns in one of her sweetest performances as the woman Arthur's family demands he stop dating. Steve Gordon's film is an absolute joy to watch, a perfect piece of celluloid entertainment that never fails to please no matter how many times one has seen it.

Customer Reviews of Arthur
Arthur is a classic Cinderella story, in more ways4/11/2013
One of my "oldie but goodie" favorites--- and it never fails to make me feel good to watch Arthur. :o) I was very pleased to find it here for such a great price and from one of my most trusted sellers.
This was one of the best written comedies with one liners that are still being repeated. Dudley Moore gives his best performance ever in this movie. Unfortunately, it was too good and most people thought that he was like Arthur. Gielguld deservedly won an Oscar for his perfect performance. Overall, this is a very funny DVD
