The Bed Sitting Room (DVD+BLU)
Richard Lester's sharply satirical end-of-the-world comedy is based on the Goonish script by John Antrobus and Spike Milligan. With Ralph Richardon, Rita Tushingham, Peter Cook, Dudley Moore, Spike Milligan, Arthur Lowe et al.
Richard Lester's late 1960s cult comedy, set during the aftermath of a nuclear explosion which ended WWIII, follows those who have survived in what is left of England enduring spontaneous mutations into various creatures and objects.
"The great nuclear misunderstanding" lasted two minutes and 28 seconds (including the peace treaty). Now, three years after the holocaust, a motley group of survivors leads a precarious existence in a desolate landscape.
The film is based on the play written by Spike Milligan and John Antrobus and stars some of Britain's best known comedians, including Peter Cook, Dudley Moore.
