Eccentric millionaire Sellers adopts homeless Ringo Starr. They then travel about, playingnasty tricks on (primarily) the rich. Putting in appearances are John Cleese, Raquel Welch,Christopher Lee, Roman Polanski, Yul Brynner, Richard Attenborough, and so on. Extremelydisjointed, and only sporadically funny (at best).
Ugh. The case claims this DVD is in 2.0 surround. Bull. This is mono, and the sound qualityis pretty bad: it’s harsh, it’s dist…rted, there are hissing “s” sounds in the dialogue — just bleecchhall round.
The picture isn’t much better, having been cropped to full screen. The colours are pretty drab,but that is, I think, true to the original picture. There is print damage in the early goings, thoughthe speckles clear up. Grain and edge enhancement difficulties put in some cameos too.
A dismal packaging of a mediocre film. Avoid.
