As Good As 'Monty Python', So Why Isn't It Better Known?
31 July 2006 | by (Ambrosia) – See all my reviews

Marty Feldman made such an impact in Associated-Rediffusion's 'At Last The 1948 Show' that the B.B.C. poached both him and Tim Brooke-Taylor for this series. And what a series it turned out to be. Marty co-wrote several sketches with his 'Round The Horne' collaborator Barry Took, others were penned by John Cleese and Graham Chapman, Michael Palin and Terry Jones, and Terry Gilliam. Many feature an ordinary setting, such as a train, a vet's or a travel agency, being disrupted by Marty ( sometimes with Tim ) in lunatic mode. The late John Junkin played various authority figures whose sanity goes out of the window after meeting Marty. In one item, Marty played a gnome who goes to his bank to see about getting a mortgage on his toadstool. Visual comedy featured prominently; 'A Hard Day's Night' must rank amongst the all-time greats, in which Marty's henpecked husband makes repeated nocturnal assignations with beautiful girls right under his wife's nose! Classic stuff - and with a cool theme tune by Ken Jones to boot!
