The Fast Lady (1962)

Murdoch Troon (Stanley Baxter) is coerced by smarmy Leslie Phillips into buying a 1927 vintage Bentley in order to impress James Robertson Justice's daughter, the car mad Julie Christie. But first he must learn how to drive.

After a so-so opening where Baxter is pretty irritating the film settles down into a reasonably fun Sunday afternoon style comedy with Robertson Justice at his gruff bastard best and Phillips as suave and lecherous as ever. It does however build to a rather well done anarchic cops and robbers style lengthy car chase finale with comedy cameo appearances galore which had me laughing out loud.

One of those British comedies from the sixties that plays on Talking Pictures TV every so often but i watched it via the new Network release that comes with a beautifully restored picture and informative booklet.
