MovieMail's Review

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.

Film Description

A pairing of films that are must-sees for all Goon fans.

Directed by Alan Cullimore and scripted by Spike Milligan and Peter Sellers, Let's Go Crazy (1960) is a madcap revue, in which Milligan plays Eccles and Sellers essays half a dozen characters including Crystal Jollibottom, an exasperated waiter and a mock Groucho Marx.

Anthony Young's Penny Points to Paradise (1951) has an Ealing feel in which Harry 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 counterfeiters and Secombe only recovers his loot after a jaunt round the local wax museum.
