    Cinema's enfant terrible Ken Russell's debut feature is an exuberant farce that has become a cult classic since its theatrical release fifty years ago. Featuring early lead roles for James Booth and Roy Kinnear, and with script input from Johnny Speight, this much sought-after comedy gem is made available here for the first time, in a brand-new transfer from the original film elements.

Then, deck-chair attendant Jim has a brain-wave – persuading the Mayor to host a film festival and import a French movie siren. It's not long before the mayors of Gormleigh's rival towns look on with jealous eyes and scheming minds…
