Dr. Barney Barnes:I gave nitrous oxide at first, to get him under.
Inspector Cockrill:Oh yes, stuff the dentist gives you, hmmm -- commonly known as "laughing gas."

A black comedy/murder mystery with the wonderful Alistair Sim, 19 October 2003
Author: mnbates50 from southport, lancashire

One of my top 100 British films a must see. Remarkable performances from an ensemble of British acting talent. The depth of the characterisations is wonderful. All of this held together by an excellent performance by Alistair Sim. A blackly comic script and sharp direction all add to this classic film.
