Double bill of Peter Sellers comedies. In ’Penny Points to Paradise’ (1951), Sellers’ first screen role, he’s joined by fellow Goons Spike Milligan and Harry Secombe. When Harry and Spike visit Bristol to spend the winnings from Harry’s latest Pools win, the boys are soon targeted by a gang of local counterfeiters. ’Let’s Go Crazy’ (1951) is a short comedy film in which both Sellers and Milligan play multiple roles.

Released in 1951, these little-seen films mark the first screen ventures of Goons Spike Milligan, Peter Sellers and Harry Secombe, and have recently been rediscovered and restored by the BFI.

Scripted by Milligan and Sellers, Let’s Go Crazy is a madcap Hellzapoppin’ revue, in which Milligan plays Eccles and Sellers essays half a dozen characters, including Crystal Jollibottom and a mock Groucho Marx.

Making up in energy what it lacks in finesse, it is much more anarchic than Penny Points to Paradise, which has a decidedly Ealing feel. This sees Secombe stars as an everyman who wins £100,000 on the football pools and decides to celebrate with buddy Milligan at a Brighton guest house. However, the place is crawling with crooks and Secombe only recovers his loot after a jaunt round the local wax museum.

With comic stalwarts like Alfred Marks and Bill Kerr alongside a scene-stealing Sellers in the supporting cast, this is a must-see for all Goon fans and students of British screen comedy.
