Description

Details

In a vividly realised post-apocalyptic London, Mrs Ethel Shroake is crowned Queen and Lord Fortnum awaits his imminent transformation into a bedsitting room. Meanwhile, 17-months pregnant Penelope and her parents leave the safety of their underground carriage to find her a husband and finally reclaim their baggage.

Richard Lester's sharply satirical end-of-the-world comedy is based on a beautifully bittersweet, Goonish script by John Antrobus and Spike Milligan.

"...acerbic and slapstick and quintessentially British." Roger Ebert.
