Director: Richard Lester
Cast: Zero Mostel, Phil Silvers, Michael Crawford, Jack Gilford, Michael Hordern, Buster Keaton
A young Roman attempts to win his sweetheart by collecting a cupful of horse sweat for a love potion.
Hilarious musical revival of Roman comedy, soon to be one-upped by Frankie Howerd. Lester blends all the comic elements to a quality not often achieved in this kind of thing, and noone quite goes over the top but maintains a Sixties screwball mien.
