WORK IS A FOUR LETTER WORD
dvd

(1968)

DIRECTOR: Peter Hall (Perfect Friday)

STARS: David Warner (Time After Time), Cilla Black, Elizabeth Spriggs, John Steiner (Hunters of the Golden Cobra)

SYNOPSIS: Low key British satire with David Warner as "Valentine Brose", an odd young man trying to find a good place for his magic mushrooms to grow. He discovers that a local corporation named DICE has a "warm, dark and steamy" environment in the building's basement / boiler room. An expert at avoiding work, he somehow bluffs his way into a job as a janitor. This gives him an opportunity to set up his boxes of mushrooms and tend to them. His girlfriend, Cilla Black, doesn't know what to do with him, a local priest want to kill him and everyone gets dosed in the end. A young John Steiner plays a corporate sleazeball. A very silly, very British, comedy that fits in with other counter-culture films like O Lucky Man!, The Rise and Rise of Michael Rimmer, Billy Liar, etc. Singer and co-star Cilla Black sings the title song.
