Trivia

This was the first film ever to require Sir John Gielgud to speak in an accent not his own; he plays an American evangelist from the Deep South. He received tuition in the accent from the veteran American voice coach Robert Easton, but did not get on with him very well. See more »

14 July 2002 | by (Israel) – See all my reviews

a stale vanity production that should have stayed on the director/co-writer/producer/composer's shelf. this "comedy" doesn't have anything resembling a laugh in all of 90 minutes. the writing is dismal. the whole thing was apparently concocted as a vehicle for susan brooks, obviously a relative of the director (etc etc), who's sweet looking but a non-actress. gielgud hams it up ridiculously with an incoherent "american" accent, and i'm not sure ralph richardson's drunkenness was "simulated". i watched this film so you don't have to.
