Rated TBC by the BBFC


Comic actor Peter Sellers stars in three of his classic comedies from the late 1950s and early 1960s. 'Heavens Above!' (1963) is a comedy of manners in which Sellers plays a well-intentioned socialist priest who is mistakenly sent to an upper-crust parish. 'I'm Alright, Jack' (1959) won Sellers a BAFTA for Best Actor as a naïve ex-soldier looking to get ahead in business, who unwittingly ends up as a pawn in the machinations between management and the trade unions. In 'Only Two Can Play' (1962), Sellers plays Welsh librarian John Lewis, who, after being married many times, burns with a desire to woo the local councillor's wife, but meets frustration around every corner. Also in this collection is a compilation of highlights from Sellers' work on television, 'The Very Best of Peter Sellers'.
