The Smallest Show On Earth

Peter Sellers, Margaret Rutherford, Virginia McKenna and Bill Travers star in Basil Dearden's heartwarming comedy The Smallest Show On Earth. This gently whimsical elegy to the golden age of cinema co-stars Bernard Miles, Leslie Phillips and Sid James and is presented here as a brand-new high definition transfer from the original film elements in its original theatrical aspect ratio.

Overjoyed to learn that they've inherited a cinema in the north of England, Matt and Jean Spenser are subsequently shattered to find it's less of a grand picture palace and more of a fleapit (with three equally decrepit employees). Can the couple make a go of it or will they be forced to sell up and watch the Bijou Kinema be redeveloped into a car park?
