The Adelphi Collection
PENNY POINTS TO PARADISE + LET'S GO CRAZY
With Peter Sellers | Spike Milligan | Harry Secombe
Unavailable for decades, Penny Points to Paradise - considered by Peter Sellers as his film debut - sees all three goons beside the seaside in a cheap and cheerful comic escapade climaxing in a Brighton Waxworks.
Shot immediately afterwards, Let's Go Crazy is a madcap selection of variety turns, interspersed with zany improvised sketches by Sellers and Milligan.
For many years something of a missing link in British comedy history, but now rescued and restored by the BFI National Archive, these rare films are a must-have for all vintage comedy fans.
- Both Penny Points to Paradise and Let's Go Crazy have been restored and mastered to High Definition from the best available film elements
- The Slappiest Days of Our Lives (1953, 73 mins) - rare feature-length silent comedy clip compilation, with flight-of-fancy voiceover commentary by Peter Sellers
- Fully illustrated booklet with detailed film notes and original promotional materials
- PCM mono audio (48k/16-bit)
UK | 1951 | black and white | English, optional hard-of-hearing subtitles | 172 minutes | DVD-9 | Original aspect ratio 1.33:1 | Region 0 PAL DVD

These two films haven't dated at all well and at times are severely laboured and just not that funny. Spike Milligan is so young (still finding his anarchic feet on camera) while Harry Secombe tries hard to be hilarious as a naïve man whose won £100,000 on the football pools (God bless him) but he just ends up being hammy rather than entertaining. The chameleon character genius that is Peter Sellers (who was very vocal about never liking the film) makes the most out of a running gag about money (thinking it's a disease - title above) while Arthur Marks plays the brainy and talkative money-forger to great effect. The two likely girls looking for a moneyed man to take them away from it all are very good too - Paddy O'Neil and Vicki Page. Tony Young directed and Alan Cullimore produced.
Of course it's not all bad - the script is very witty in places - the landlady of the Brighton bed & breakfast they're all staying in tells Arthur Marks and his brainless sidekick that "You can see the sea from the window - if you use a chair - and don't lean out too far..." to which he replies - "is that so - remind me to find a chair and do that one day!" Very Marx Brothers, very funny...Read more ›
Peter Sellers is almost straight by comparison. This is a terrific glimpse of possibilities to come in The Goon Show.
Let's Go Crazy is just Sellers doing some not very good voiceover to classic silent films. Quite a disappointment actually.
