Movie poster of the weekDecember 7, 2007
I caught sight of this classy poster hanging on the wall of the forensic lab in the avian-obsessed Brewster McCloud the other day. Released the year before Altman’s film, it purports to be a swinging ‘sixties update of Evelyn Waugh’s Decline and Fall, directed by one John Krish. According to All-Movie Guide “Paul Pennyfeather is an Oxford divinity student who finds himself expelled after a gang of drunken freshmen remove his pants and he is accused of exposing himself to a girl. Looking for work, he retains the services of an unsavory employment agency that secures a position for him at a sleazy Welsh boarding school for boys…” If anyone’s ever seen this forgotten M-rated gem (“Suggested for Mature Audiences”) please let me know.
