"Frankie Howerd is the Funniest Knight of the Year!"


  • Director: Bob Kellett
  • Genre: Comedy,
  • Studio: EMI Films
  • Subtitled | Duration: 110 Mins

A glance at the credits - produced by Ned Sherrin, script by Sid Colin, Ray Galton and Alan Simpson, score by Carl Davis - raises one's hopes for this medieval incarnation of Frankie Howerd's TV hit Up Pompeii. But, sadly, expectations are soon dashed as it becomes clear that Lurkalot is a pale imitation of his ancient ancestor Lurcio, and that there are few comic highlights to brighten these "dark ages". As dependent as he was on handcrafted material, Howerd looks very ordinary beside the infinitely more versatile supporting cast of top character comics.
