Lloyd Fellowes (Sir Michael Caine) is the director of a theatre company. He's desperately trying to get his production together, despite the best efforts of the cast, the crew, and Lady Luck. We follow the production from final rehersals, through opening night, and onto the tour. As with any group of actors forced to work closely together for any great length of time, romances and arguments are bound to break out. Quite often, what's happening on stage is nothing compared to what's happening backstage.Written by

When we see the show from the stage, there are fake walls visible behind all the doors. When we see the show from backstage, those fake walls are missing from all the upstairs doors (although present for the downstairs doors). See more »

If you can keep up with this movie, you'll laugh from beginning to end. The movie that never stops. This movies rapid fire comedy can make you dizzy and it provides very few and small slow spots to catch your breath! The story of a inept theatre troope that just gets worse and worse, the closer they get to the bigtime. It reminds us that there is no business like show business. No business at all!
