In the hazy aftermath of World War III, the fallout from a 'nuclear misunderstanding' (which lasted two minutes and twenty eight seconds, including the signing of the peace treaty) is producing strange mutations amongst the survivors, and the noble Lord Fortnum finds himself transforming into a bed-sitting room.
This vividly imagined, darkly satirical filmic version of a post apocalyptic England, directed by Richard Lester (A Hard Days Night, How I Won the War, The Knack) is based on the highly regarded play by Spike Milligan and John Antrobus. It also boasts great performances by the cream of 60s British comedy and acting talent: Rita Tushingham, Ralph Richardson, Peter Cook, Harry Secombe, Dudley Moore, Spike Milligan, Michael Horden, Roy Kinnear, Arthur Lowe, Dandy Nichols and Marty Feldman

I never saw this when it was released at the cinema but I have been enjoying the BFI 'Flipside' series of releases so I thought I'd give this one a try. It is a treat indeed. I would love to have seen the original stage-play. There are shades of Monty Python, The Goons and a hint of Dr Strangelove! what a mix! This film certainly will live up to re-watching and I will be digging deeper into the BFI 'Flipside' collection now. Oh, and a good price from Zavvi.
