Bryan Forbes directs Michael Caine, Ralph Richardson and Peter Cook in this Victorian era farce about two ageing brothers who must outlive each other to win a lottery prize.
A sluggish mess… wasting the talents of Pete and Dud AND Peter Sellers. Dated Sixties attitudes deflate good production values. Rambling nonsense even derails a sexually chaste romance between beautiful kissing cousins Caine and Nanette Newman. Everyone except her feels miscast and half mast. A sleep inducing mess.
