School For Scoundrels

School For Scoundrels- 1960, Directed by Robert Hamer, starring Ian Carmichael and Terry-Thomas

He says-  Wimpy Carmichael, about to lose the girl of his dreams to pushy Thomas, attends the title institute, where he learns "one-upmanship" and "gamesmanship."  Clever, funny, veddy British satire.  Full title on-screen is School for Scoundrels or How to Win Without Actually Cheating.  Remade in 2006.  3 stars

I say-  Bleh.  I hate British humor.  I thought the beginning was good, and that was about it.  Now it's time to watch the remake and see if it's any better.  BOMB
