  • Description

    IN LONDON STARS CROWDED THE ODEAN CINEMA, KENSINGTON, TONIGHT (THURSDAY) FOR THE CHARITY WORLD PREMIERE OF "THE MAGIC CHRISTIAN", THE COMMONWEALTH UNITED FILM STARRING PETER SELLERS AND BEATLE RINGO STARR.

    PETER SELLERS HIMSELF WAS AN EARLY ARRIVAL, FOLLOWED BY ROGER MOORE (TELEVISION'S SAINT), RINGO STARR AND YUL BRYNNER.

    PRINCESS MARGARET AND LORD SNOWDEN ARRIVED FROM NEARBY KENSINGTON PALACE AND GREETED THE STARS AND OTHER PROMINENT GUESTS.

    "THE MAGIC CHRISTIAN", ADAPTED FROM THE SATIRICAL NOVEL BY TERRY SOUTHERN, HAS BEEN CALLED AN IRREVERENT PARODY OF PRESENT-DAY SOCIETY, FULL OF SNOBBERY, COMPLACENCY AND HYPOCRISY. THE STORY REVOLVES ROUND PETER SELLERS, AS ONE OF THE WORLD'S RICHEST MEN, WHO ADOPTS A YOUNG VAGRANT HE FINDS IN A PARK (RINGO STARR), AND SETS OFF TO SHOW HIM THAT EVERYTHING AND EVERYBODY HAS A PRICE.

    THE FILM UNFOLDS IN A SERIES OF UNCONVENTIONAL, CRAZY SEQUENCES. IN THIS CLIP WE SEE THE UNLIKELY PAIR GIVING THE TREATMENT TO SPIKE MILLIGAN AS AN ALL-TOO-CORRUPTIBLE LONDON TRAFFIC WARDEN.
