"Last night neither you nor your wife had a bean. Now..."
The first of a season of films displaying the many-sided talents of Peter Sellers
with Lionel Jeffries, Bernard Cribbins, Nanette Newman, Davy Kaye, Bill Kerr
When a gang of phoney policemen hi-jack London's leading crooks and make off with their ill-gotten gains, the underworld is up in arms - and so begins the craziest conspiracy in criminal history, between the cops and the robbers! For Peter Sellers a tailor-made role as full-time gang leader and spare-time couturier, with Lionel Jeffries as the wonderfully confused police inspector.

A personal view by Kenneth Clark
"All the greatest exponents of civilisation, from Dante to Goethe, have been obsessed by light - perhaps one could take it as the supreme symbol of civilisation. But in the 17th century, the invention of the lens was giving light a new range and power."
The telescope and the microscope revealed new worlds in space and in a drop of water; and the realism of Dutch painting carried a stage further the observation of human character. Kenneth Clark's story takes him from the Holland of Rembrandt and Vermeer to the London of Wren, Purcell and the Royal Society.
"When I say that I find Kenneth Clark's 'Civilisation' entertaining, and so does my wife and my children's nannie and a 16-year-old American girl who happens to be visiting us, why am I suspect!" (Evening Standard)
