Review

Our Score
This black comedy supplied Peter Sellers with some of his funniest, and finest, pre-Hollywood material. It's based - as the best British humour often is - on class and sex, with Sellers as a crowd-pleasing TV personality who's being blackmailed by smarmy Dennis Price, in Kind Hearts and Coronets mode as the editor of a muck-raking magazine. Terry-Thomas (who had worked with Sellers on Tom Thumb) is the peer who encourages the victims (among them Peggy Mount) to gang up against their persecutor. Mario Zampi directs the gags in Michael Pertwee's satisfying script with superb timing.

Summary

Peter Sellers, Terry-Thomas and Peggy Mount star in this offbeat comedy about a group of celebrities banding together to stop a ruthless blackmailing publisher. With Dennis Price and Shirley Eaton.
