Mick Garris on

The Magic Christian

Released 1970
Distributor Commonwealth United Entertainment

Long before Gordon Gekko told us “greed is good”, Sir Guy Grand (Peter Sellers) embarked on a mad quest to prove that everyone has their price. Terry Southern transforms his cynical novel into a nihilistic lark full of celebrity cameos and Monty Python-esque gags, some contributed by actual soon-to-be Python members.
