Morgan!

Also known as Morgan: A Suitable Case for Treatment. British, a bit dated, the offbeat antics of eccentric artist Morgan Delt make the film reasonably enjoyable. The girl (Lynn Redgrave) he’s trying to win back is just as nutty as him. Each are thoroughly British.

Being British and made in the 60’s, the film utilizes sped-up Benny Hill style comic sequences. Was this every funny? To whom? Another indicator of its era is the number of jokes about Lenin and Trotsky. Do these joke make any sense to modern viewers? Those not interested in politics? So much of today’s comedies, especially those where the actor is allowed run amok and look foolish, avoid all politics. In a way it’s nice to hear jokes linked to something other than bodily excretions.
