Scoop (1987) – The riotous, satirical film adapted from Evelyn Waugh’s barbed comic novel, with a venerable cast led faultlessly by Michael Maloney (Notes on a Scandal), Donald Pleasence (The Great Escape) and Denholm Elliott (A Bridge too Far); directed by Foyle’s War director Gavin Millar and scripted by internationally acclaimed writer and journalist William Boyd, this is not only a wonderful comedy, but an entertaining and immensely enjoyable film.
