Tales from the crypt

Tales from the crypt (2006)

Tales from the Crypt, sometimes titled HBO's Tales from the Crypt, is a British film. The title is based on the 1950s EC Comics series of the same name and most of the content originated in that comic or the four other EC Comics of the time (Haunt of Fear, Vault of Horror, Crime SuspenStories, and Shock SuspenStories). The show was produced by HBO with uncredited association by The Geffen Film Company and Warner Bros. Television (all part of a production consortium officially called Tales from the Crypt Holdings). The series is not to be confused with the 1972 film by the same name or Tales from the Darkside, another similarly themed horror anthology series.

Doctor in Trouble (1970)

Dr. Tony Burke (Leslie Phillips) is in love with Ophelia O'Brien (Angela Scoular), but doesn't have time to propose to her as she leaves for a cruise to the Mediterranean. Also, on-board the cruise ship is an old school chum of Burke's who plays "Dr. Dare" on a very popular television series, and to whom women flock. Burke decides to join the cruise, but is first apprehended as a stowaway, and then becomes the Captain's steward. For Burke, trying to talk to Ophelia is a hard enough task, but he meets some funny characters on-board, such as a pools winner, and a very stubborn Captain.
