The Battle of the Sexes (1960) (DVD)
Directed by Charles Crichton
(Comedy Spiked with Farce… A Maximum of Wit!) – The New York Times – The great Charles Crichton (A Fish Called Wanda, The Lavender Hill Mob) directed this hilarious slapstick comedy - Angela Barrows (Constance Cummings, Blithe Spirit) is a man-eating business woman who is sent by her American employer to investigate their export opportunities in Edinburgh. En route she meets Robert MacPherson (Robert Morley, Topkapi) a businessman who asks for her help to bring his company into the 20th century. The staff, led by Mr. Martin played by screen legend Peter Sellers (The Party, After the Fox) has other ideas however, and a comic battle between the old and new business methods soon brakes out. A vintage Sellers comedy that ranks amongst his funniest - co-starring Donald Pleasence (Halloween, The Great Escape).
