Sounds a bit like Hawks's MONKEY BUSINESS. I'll have to add it to the list.

Now that one I have seen. First heard of it in FM -- "Philip (GLADIATOR) Wylie." Like that.

The BFI has a print, but I've never heard of any showings on this side of the pond.

That doesn't look good, even by my low comedic standards. But it is great to see it is out there.

Here is one that was shown in theaters, said to play on PBS, but was never rebroadcasted, nor released on home entertainment like VHS, DVD, and Blu-Ray.  This is TROIKA (1969).  To read more about it, read the book NIGHT MARE U.S.A.
