Monte Carlo or Bust
Please take your seats and switch off your mobile phones, as Radio 2 heads to the movies for the last time. Rock and roller Joe Brown looks at his all time favourite Monte Carlo or Bust, a film that's been making him laugh for 40 years, with its endless one-liners and hilarious slapstick calamity.
Released in 1969, it's a flamboyant last blast of a Hollywood era before the less flamboyant 1970's cinema took hold. It follows the story of the real life Monte Carlo Rally - the race to the Riviera from points across Europe, with cheating, scheming and speeding. It's a big budget family fun, with scenes from Scotland, Sicily, Portugal, Athens, India and France. It's also got a stellar line up including Peter Cook, Dudley Moore, Tony Curtis, Susan Hampshire, Terry Thomas and Eric Sykes. This episode includes an interview with Eric Sykes himself.
