The Green Man and School For Scoundrels are two of Alaistair Sim's greatest comedy efforts.
In the Green Man we see Sim as an assassin who is chased across England (by a very young George Cole) while attempting to kill his next victim.
In the School for Scoundrels we get a lively comedy starring Ian Carmichael and Terry Thomas. Sim's plays the professor of the school for rougues (ie Stephen Potts) teaching Carmichael how to take revenge on his nemesis by "winning without actually cheating" and to win the girl of his dreams. Based on the Books by the real Stephen Potter (Gamesmanship and Lifemanship) there is a real story and a lot of fun.
"Hard Cheese" for anyone who misses the opportunity to watch this set.
