Viva Max!

OK, not a ‘must see’ for many, but a bit of a rarey for fans of Ustinov middle years. A 60’s ‘family comedy’, meaning no bad language or nudity, with a silly plot of a Mexican General (Ustinov) seeking to recapture the Alamo to impress his girlfriend.

John (the original Gomez Addams) Astin as his shepherding Sergeant, Jonathan (I know the face, wasn’t he in……) Winters as the unlikely National Guard commander, Keenan Wynn roughly reprising his 'Bat' Guano character from Dr. Strangelove, and Kenneth Mars without German helmet worn in The Producers.
