One of the strangest (and most infamous) cinematic ego trips in film history, starring Anthony Newley as a song-and-dance man who reviews his debauched past. He begins the film wearing huge, Elton John-ish sunglasses (possibly as some kind of warped tribute to 8 1/2), while lecturing his mother and daughter in a surreal desert setting. Elements of Fellini and even Jodorowsky are present (albeit in a very bizarre way). Newley also produced, directed, wrote the screenplay and music for the film. The Holy Grail for Newley fans, and an essential addition to the collections of Golden Turkey fans. With Joan Collins, Milton Berle, George Jessel, Stubby Kaye, and Playmate Connie Kreski.
