Penny Points to Paradise / Let’s Go Crazy
Films by Toby Young and Alan Cullimore
Two valuable early Peter Sellers performances, rescued from obscurity and restored by the BFI National Archive. Penny Points to Paradise sees all the Goons beside the seaside in a cheap and cheerful comic escapade climaxing in a Brighton waxworks. Shot around the same time, Let’s Go Crazy is a madcap selection of variety turns, with memorable performances from Spike Milligan and Sellers in multiple roles. Both films provide an important insight into British comedy history and, specifically, chart the beginnings of Sellers’ rise to stardom. A must-have for all vintage comedy fans.
