The Great McGonagall

Because You d The Great McGonagall
Biography Comedy Rated: 7+ (PG)19751h 25mOn: Fandor Country: United Kingdom

In this high-camp farce, Goons legend Spike Milligan stars as William Topaz McGonagall, an unemployed Scottish weaver and aspiring poet laureate who falls in love with Queen Victoria - a brilliant cameo by Peter Sellers - and thereafter devotes his banal poetry to her. Though McGonagall's solicitations are rejected by the Queen, it doesn't stop the turgid prose, and pathos, from overflowing as McGonagall hilariously attempts to become the greatest poet in the land. The image of the bad poet, trapped by his romanticism and inspired by a muse with a tin ear, appealed mightily to Spike Milligan, and this cult British spoof features the Goons show maestro at his ridiculous, genre-defying best.The Great McGonagall featuring Spike Milligan and Peter Sellers is streaming with subscription on Fandor. It's a biography and comedy movie with a less than average IMDb audience rating of 5.0 (246 votes).
