Peter Sellers at his sparkling best
29 August 1999 | by Elliott-3See all my reviews

One of my all-time favourite movies. At least, that's what I thought last time I saw it 25 years ago!

Unusually, the movie plot is an improvement on the book (originally called "The Operator" but renamed in line with the movie). The authors of the book were also the screenwriters and the took the opportunity to sharpen up the plot - changing the insurance investigator who comes to work out why this hospital has so many claims, into an innocent tradesman who is scammed into unnecessary medical attention so the hospital can take his house in payment.

As a Brit I was proud of Peter Sellers starring as an American in an American movie. I can only assume his accent passed muster - it sounded perfect to me.

C'mon studio - release it on DVD NOW!
