Will these discs play over in Britain? LOL He should have at least gave him some Blu-Ray titles.
WTF?! Wonder if they were all once "video nasties".
In return, Brown gave his guest a first edition set of the seven-volume classic biography of Churchill by Sir Martin Gilbert.
Fuck it, I'll take the dvds. Anybody know the titles?
Gordon Brown has been given a collection of 25 classic American films on DVD as his official gift from Barack Obama.
The Prime Minister flew home from his successful trip to Washington this morning with the 'special collector's box' of films hidden in his luggage.
No 10 had tried to keep the present a secret, refusing to answer reporters who asked what President Obama had given to mark the reaffirmation of the special relationship.
However, the Evening Standard discovered the truth through White House insiders.
The article given actually states whats in the box...

So what would you have given him?
Come up with you're own list!
That's actually a damn fine list if I must say so. I woulda swapped out It's A Wonderful Life for It Happened One Night though. But that's just Capra preference haha
"Shut up! It's Daddy, you shithead! Where's my bourbon?!"
Can you imagine the type of films that I would if was President and I was meeting the PM of Italy, Turkey, or the President of the Philippines?
I can't find the appropriate LEAGUE OF GENTLEMEN clip on youtube, but all I can imagine is Gordon Brown going "Seen, seen, seen, seen, seen, seen, seen…"
Obama should have just given Brown a free Netflix subscription.
He couldn't throw in some porn?
Seems awfully careless and thoughtless to me, like he just grabbed them off of a white house shelf somewhere. I bet Brown refers to Obama as "that wanker" from now on.
May the wings of liberty never lose a feather.
