Waltz of the Toreadors

1962

John Guillermin
Director

Dotty elderly general relives his glory days while still chasing skirts.

Odd farce with Sellers playing the sort of role that Ronnie Barker would later excel at. Has odd moments of pathos and cruelty which work better than the humour. Leeds Cstle provides the rather pretty scenery.
