Mister Ten Per Cent DVD Cover

Pre-dating Mel Brooks’ The Producers by a year, this 1967 comedy stars the inimitable Charlie Drake as a budding playwright whose magnum opus seems a cast-iron guarantee of box-office disaster. Featuring support from an array of British film and television stars – including George Baker, John Le Mesurier, Ronald Radd and Wanda Ventham – Mister Ten Per Cent is presented here in a brand-new transfer from the original film elements in its as-exhibited theatrical aspect ratio.

Percy Pointer may work on a building site, but his passion is the theatre, and all his spare time is devoted to the play he is writing. It means everything to him: he lives in the fictional world he is creating, acting out to the full every emotion and situation that he pens. When Percy’s play is finished, it arrives on the desk of Jocelyn Macauley, London’s leading impresario, at a time when he is particularly anxious to stage a resounding flop and so incur an impressive tax loss. To Macauley, Oh, My Lord! is made to order…
