| The Perfect Comedy....
I've seen this once, way back in the winter of '76.... but it still remains as my favorite comedy... Why this is not screened more often or available to buy is beyond comprehension... the leg-shaped lamp, the afore-mentioned fiasco with the train full of boxed house parts... It is well-scripted, and funnier than anything else I've EVER seen... this is total brilliance... if anyone out there has a copy, PLEASE let me know...

If there's one film that will have you weeping with laughter until your gut muscles ache, this is it.... if you EVER get the chance to see this, do NOT pass it by.... you will remember moments in this film for the rest of your days...
