Peter Sellers, Harry Secombe and Spike Milligan in ' The Lost Emperor'
Somewhere among the lichen-backed mountains of Mongolia, entombed in a sacred dustbin, lies the fabulous treasure of Fred Jenghiz Khan. For twenty long years Neddie Seagoon has examined every clue that might help him to trace the treasure of the lost emperor. Then one day, while working as a heavily disguised part-time dustman at Bethnal Green Castle, he finds a portion of the dreaded international Christmas pudding bearing a secret inscription, indicating the whereabouts of the treasure.
Seagoon sets off hot-foot for Tibet but is waylaid by two famous international criminal archaeologists who strike him down with a mummified Egyptian piano. He recovers and traces his way to the sacred dustbin, only to find that once more he has been thwarted-for all that remains is an international Italian Bootlace.

Paul Boyle chooses
Tod Slaughter , claims Paul Boyle , is the epitome of stage villainy, terrible in his rages, but far more terrible in his solicitude. Comedy lies at the success of his villainy-for the spice of laughter sharpens the broth of horror. ' I take the sting out of murder,' Tod Slaughter once told the speaker; adding, with his graveyard chuckle, ' I like to make a little joke of it.' with Tod Slaughter as Sweeney Todd
