THE MOUSE THAT ROARED
1959, Sony Repertory, 83 min, UK, Dir: Jack Arnold

“The Hilarious Story of How the Duchy of Grand Fenwick Waged War on the U.S. - and Won!” Jack Arnold (THE CREATURE FROM THE BLACK LAGOON) may have seemed a strange choice to helm this satirical comedy about a tiny nation going to war with America to lose, then reap massive foreign aid, but he succeeds beautifully. Peter Sellers riotously pulls off one of his first stabs at multiple roles, portraying Grand Duchess Gloriana, Minister Count Rupert Mountjoy and Tully Bascombe. Costarring Jean Seberg, Leo McKern and David Kossoff. “…nicely done and often hilarious.” – Don Druker, The Chicago Reader.


Special Ticket Price: $8.
