THE JOKERS
1967, Universal, 94 min, UK, Dir: Michael Winner

Director Michael Winner’s dazzling (but rarely screened) satire of Young London features Michael Crawford (pre-“Phantom of the Opera”) and Oliver Reed as a pair of rich, freewheeling brothers making the rounds of posh parties. Their anarchic spirit gets the better of them - and a string of increasingly elaborate pranks results in their making off with the Crown.
