Nigel Dennis publishes a scandal magazine. But for each story he writes, he first approaches the person whose scandalous behavior is described (or rather implied, to avoid any libel suit) and says he will suppress the story in return for money. Several of his victims first decide individually to kill him instead of paying, but fail in amusing ways. Then they find that to protect their various secrets they must now join forces for a rather different purpose... —Anonymous
A truly definitive British comedy
Although this movie greets you with a seedy beginning it quickly blossoms into a delightful and rip-roaring comedy. Watching this movie at the impressionable age of 14, i immediately saw what made British comedy movies so different and, in my opinion, so much more worthwhile than those made across the Atlantic. Peter Sellers is definitely at his best as one of the blackmailees (?) and the rest of the cast is at the worst above average. A truly definitive British comedy!
