Peter Sellers takes three roles in a jolly British comedy, adapted from Leonard Wibberley's novel The Wrath of Grapes. He plays the prime minister of the tiny state of Grand Fenwick, which decides to declare war on the US as a shaky ruse to avoid bankruptcy. Sellers also plays the heroic Tully Bascombe, who leads the archaic army's 20-strong, chain-mail clad invasion force, and is quite astonishing as Queen Gloriana.
