An outstanding acting by the good old and never enough recognized Derek Jacobi and of course, Ollie Reed that here makes the perfect butler, stiff, stone-faced, confident and knowledgeable. I would've welcomed subtitles when he spoke Geordie dialect though. The setting is sublime and the environs perfect for a bunch of lunatics trying to fit in the social expectations of the time. We even get a most wonderful song to a nanny! If you are a nanny you will be proud of this beautiful rendering. As always British use in their films sophisticated cars that I very much enjoy seeing. All in all another masterpiece of British film making even if the Director only started (and ended) his career with this film.
