Editorial Reviews

The Rise and Rise of Michael Rimmer is comedy and comedy, a quirky skewering of sex, the advertsing business, media, politics, the clergy, ale and you name it and featuring a motley array of talents - we'll name them: Bedazzled and Beyond the Fringe's Peter Cook, Monty Pythonites John Cleese and Graham Chapman, ever-reliable comedy veterans Denholm Elliott and Dennis Price, playwright Harold Pinter and more. At the center of the gleeful goings-on is Rimmer (Cook), who begins a career at a marketing research firm and manipulates his way into upward mobility. He gets the girl. He gets the wealth and acclaim. He gets the presidency of England, a position created just for him. You get the laughs. If offbeat British '60s-era fare is your cuppa, drink up.

This product is manufactured on demand using DVD-R recordable media. Amazon.com's standard return policy will apply.

The character of Rimmer has been around a long time: Steerpike from Gormanghast, alive in our time. A wonderful film.

Peter Cook at his brilliant best. Anyone who lived through the sixties in the UK and who had an interest in politics would recognise the parody of real events = the Regents Park tea Party run by David Frost, the shallow posturing of Harold Wilson, and the slightly bewildered Harold MacMillan. Peter's early death was the loss of a tragicomic genius.

The finest piece of Political Satire that I've ever seen. Peter Cook at his best.
Possibly made funnier by the fact that it all was so real to life.!!
