"The Wrong Box" (1966) All-star dark British comedy. Truly hysterical!

Sell.com    Items for Sale    Movies, Music & TV    DVD's    2RVKH9   

This film, directed by Bryan Forbes, has an enormously gifted ensemble cast enshrined in a lunatic romp in Victorian England over a vast fortune accrued over many years in a financial instrument knows as a tontine. Initially, the tontine is created by financial investment of the parents of several young boys, with the idea that the last to survive many years later will reap the full payout. In typical British style, we see each man as he grows come to a horrible (but very funny!) death, until only 2 brothers remain. Much hilarity ensues as the survivors or THEIR beneficiaries try to claim the payout which has grown substantially. The two surviving brothers are played by John Mills and Ralph Richardson, as funny as they've ever been, and they're surrounded by a pack of relations and assorted other nitwits played by Michael Caine, Peter Cooke and Dudley Moore (famous as a due then from their "Beyond The Fringe" show), Nanette Newman, Tony Hancock and Peter Sellers as a doped-out doctor asked to hand over a signed, but undated, Death Certificate. There is so much chaos and lunacy as this story, "suggested by one from Robert Louis Stevenson", that it would take pages to describe, and I wouldn't want to take the fun out of the experience of watching it yourself by telling too much here anyway. This film is trademark Death, British Style!

I also offer this in a 2-DVD "Dark British Comedy" set here, coupled with 1969's "The Assassination Bureau" starring a radiant Diana Rigg fresh off her "Avengers" days and Oliver Reed in another chase-to-the-death (literally!) romp for a substantial discount.

Because I burn these DVDs, like all my others, on an as-ordered basis, there may be a slight delay in your receipt, but I assure you not too horrible!

Thanks for looking!
