Zero Mostel dominates the screen in Richard Lester's musically pared down but cinematically expanded version of Stephen Sondheim's hit musical farce, based on the works of Plautus. A beautifully recreated (and authentically grubby) First-century Rome is the setting for this frenetic comedy of confused courtesans, swaggering soldiers and scheming slaves, starring a host of much-loved comedy actors from both sides of the Atlantic. Introduced by John J Johnston.
