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.
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.
