Wallace & Gromit in A Close Shave (1995, GBR) C-30m. n/r D: Nick Park. Starring (the voices of) Peter Sallis, Anne Reid. Oscar-winning third Wallace and Gromit movie is mad-cap action adventure about the inventor, who has established a window-cleaning service. His dog Gromit gets involved with the mysterious disappearance of sheep. Provides a hilarious succession of gags. Many of the brilliant ideas here were expanded into the (equally Oscar-winning) feature WALLACE & GROMIT IN THE CURSE OF THE WERE-RABBIT (2005).
