Brass Monkey

Based on an old British radio show, The Brass Monkey is a fast-paced British mystery and comedy thriller.

Caroll Levis stars as a radio personality who attempts to prevent a connoisseur of Buddhist artefacts from stealing the priceless Brass Monkey. The film is littered with stars such as Herbert Lom, Avril Angers and Terry-Thomas, but it is perhaps most famous for being the swansong of the beautiful Carole Landis. She committed suicide soon after completing this film in a scandal that shook the film world.
