In the scene where the Mott society is meeting, they listen to a record album of a talk by a right-wing pundit; many right-wing pundits put out albums of their speeches in the 1960s and 1970s and widely distributed them for sale in friendly newspapers, since they could only afford to get radio time on low-power stations.

A great vintage comedy based on an original idea with non stop comic action and hilarious gags that will keep you laughing all the way.The actors are superb demonstrating the human weakness in a splendid manner.They do their best to stay of smoking for a month to win the big money prize.It sounds easy but is almost impossible because the city is full of fanatic smokers including the town's doctor who is the heaviest of them all.Will they make it?You'll never know until the end because....I can't reveal anything else Find it and watch it now..I love this film and i can't understand why it has not been reissued on dvd yet.Surely it deserves it and i for one would buy it instantly.Deserves to be in any self respecting comedy collection.....8 out of 10
