The Knack...and How to Get It

1965 Rated NR 1hr 25m

In this risqué, rollicking 1960s sex farce from Britain, slimy skirt-chaser Tolen (Ray Brooks) tries to give his straitlaced landlord, timid schoolteacher Colin (the perfectly cast Michael Crawford), a tip or two about how to make it with the ladies -- with riotously funny results. Rita Tushingham is hilarious as their wide-eyed, innocent target. A swift, smart comedy adapted from the play by Ann Jellicoe.
