Laughter in the Library: I’m All Right Jack

1959, 105 mins

Digital restoration of a classic film with soundtrack.

I'm All Right Jack set Peter Sellers on the road to international stardom after his decade on radio in The Goons. Sellers plays multiple roles--both Sir John Kennaway and, unforgettably, the bolshie trades-union leader Fred Kite. The result is laugh-out-loud comedy with a satirical edge, lampooning the then burning issue of industrial relations. Bertram Tracepurcel (Dennis Price) plans to make a fortune from a missile contract, a scheme that involves manipulating his innocent nephew Stanley Windrush (Ian Carmichael) into acting as the catalyst in an escalating labour dispute, from which the socialist Mr Kite is only too keen to make capital.
