| Almost Sellers
Surely not yet Sellers at his best. I believe that he still had to be fully discovered. This is Sellers at the very beginning. He was proud of this at the time because he had just put his foot through the door. the best was yet to come. But hey I did appreciate how good this must have been for its time though. Im sure it got the audience laughing back then. I had high hopes to be in a fit, pretty confident I would be cracking up as always with Sellers, but not all that much with this one. But it was worth a watch since the story is based on this island which very much reminds me of the one I live on. Tonight Im going to watch another one of Sellers first and early works called "The smallest show on Earth", I hope it will get me giggling more than this one did as one would expect.
