Laughing all the way to the Graveyard

by Hamshaw on Oct 2, 2008

For a decade Ealing Studios produced the finest comedy films in the world. Fifty years on they are almost all regarded as classics, but there is none finer than this! There is no easy answer to the question "How can a film which features eight murders be so brilliantly funny?" Alec Guiness, yes, he of "Bridge over the River Kwai", portrays no less than eight characters, all of whom come to sticky ends, but the true comic genious is Dennis Price. His langorous, precisely enunciated and utterly stylish portrayal of an aspiring english aristocrat, pursuing then renouncing the delicious Joan Greenwood almost steals the show. There are hardly any special effects, only superb acting and a plot so labryinthine that it keeps you in suspense, and stitches, until, quite literally, the very last moment. One that is, without question, unmissable. Ask Robert Osborne if you don't believe me!
