Trivia

Veteran actress Patience Collier plays a "Mrs. Levin" in the film, and is outrageously made up to resemble a transvestite version of the eminent journalist and broadcaster Bernard Levin, a friend of producer Ned Sherrin and one of the stars of Sherrin's most famous TV series, "That Was The Week That Was".

A truly funny film!
28 September 2003 | by See all my reviews

This still remains in my memory as one of the funniest films ever. In that respect, it was very much ahead of it's time, certainly for 1970. A number of current and future stars were cast very cleverly (who could imagine Penelope Keith, for example, as a German lesbian, and a former mud-wrestler to boot??!!). This film poked fun at almost every aspect of the Establishment, and that is not a bad thing - but very brave at the time, I would suggest. An absolute classic, in my view.
