Absolutely perfect farce
16 October 2003 | by inframanSee all my reviews

What a marvelous concoction this was. Perfectly cast, delightfully performed, superbly directed. What a tragedy this version cannot be seen today. With the exception of Peter Sellers, the film version was a travesty, more along the lines of chitty chitty bang bang.
