Summary
Unearthed in a producer's vault, this British comedy gem is the only filmed record of the groundbreaking 1960s comedy revue. A 1964 gala farewell performance of the famous stage revue by its original cast (twice as long as the version broadcast on the BBC) it has never been released on home video. Four men from Oxford (Alan Bennett studying history & Dudley Moore on a music scholarship) and Cambridge (Jonathan Miller studying medicine & Peter Cook taking languages) were invited to present a comedy revue at the Edinburgh Festival in 1960. This led to a London production and then moved on to Broadway-- and their style of satire became a major influence on comedy and comedians
