Aroview: Brilliant satire of labour and class relations, makes a glorious mockery of unions and management alike as upperclass twit Ian Carmichael joins the labour force and unknowingly dismantles their self-serving regimes.
Peter Sellers is superb in the 'straight role' of union shop steward Fred Kite, but it's the crackling script and terse direction that gives it the satiric fire to rival, say, DR. STRANGELOVE. When people say "you can't beat British comedy", perhaps this is what they mean.
