The Difference In Teeth Between These Two Great Religions

This is an audio-only parody of The Bridge on the River Kwai, with Peter Sellers and many of the top British satirists of the early 1960s. It’s very funny, though not quite as funny, perhaps, as its perpetrators imagine (not least because it’s pretty darn racist). As for David Lean’s film, if I may quote myself,

In scripting, acting, and direction, one of the finest films of its decade. Though woefully misleading about the real people, motivations, and situations of the Siam-Burma Railway, it’s the everybody’s-seen-it touchstone for that appalling episode. ”
