AT last...the film that was on television for every single school holiday in the 1980s comes to DVD.

Michael Crawford may be best known for his roles as The Phantom of the Opera and as accident-prone, hapless serial employee Frank Spencer, but it is his role in Walt Disney's Condorman that truly gave him a platform worthy of his abilities.

Crawford plays Woody, a cartoonist who becomes embroiled in a web of international intrigue when he is mistaken for a spy by a beautiful Russian defector, Natalia, when visiting a friend in Paris.

So far so simple, but when Natalia is captured, Woody decided to become his own invented superhero Condorman to rescue her.

Using his special wings and a run-down farm truck that transforms into a flying machine, Condorman outwits those pesky commies, led by Oliver Reed.
