A masterpiece
25 June 2000 | by aberlour36See all my reviews

This is surely one of the most hilarious films ever made. It's a comic masterpiece. The casting is perfect in every way. The story--well, it's Wodehouse. Why on earth doesn't someone have the sense to make this available on VHS? I'm using a grainy film I recorded from Masterpiece Theater.
