The smallest show on earth....!
The first time I ever saw this film was in the early 1950's,when I was an eight year old,and it has stuck in my memory ever since.A couple get left a very old cinema with some extremely old staff in it,who seem to have always been there.To start with they wonder about selling to there rival in a very modern cinema, who wants to pull it down, and use the site for a car park, but that would leave their staff without any work, or money to live on, so they decide to open the place, and run it.
Well lots of things happen, as you can imagine with Peter Sellers being in the cast. I personally think it is the best role I have ever seen Peter Sellers in, he plays the projectionist ,he keeps getting drunk.In the end they decide to sell it to the rival,and the doorman hears them saying that going to have to sell up,as they are broke,the doorman burns down the rivals place so that the rival wil have give them a lot of money so that he can stay in business while his place is being rebuilt,and also so that the old staff can have some money too.
It really is a great film hence the 5 stars*****.
