Summary
Comedy legend Peter Sellers portrays Sir Guy Grand, the richest man in the world. One day he whimsically adopts a young homeless man who he happens to meet by chance during a stroll in the park. Together they set off on a series of madcap escapades and comically attack the snobbery and hypocrisy of modern society as they go from one hilarious misadventure to another. Featured are Paul McCartney's hit song Come and Get It and the Monty Python regulars adding their own quirky brand of hilarity
