CGiii Comment

O'Toole earned an Oscar nomination...for this madcap extravaganza.

It's cruel and funny - definitely of the time.

Comparable to Wes Anderson's work...only better.

The(ir) Blurb...

A member of the House of Lords dies in a shockingly silly way, leaving his estate to his son. Unfortunately, his son is insane: he thinks he is Jesus Christ. The other somewhat-more respectable members of their family plot to steal the estate from him. Murder and mayhem ensues.
