Richard Lester does what he can with this Broadway farce/musical, which stars Zero Mostel, Michael Crawford, Phil Silvers, and Buster Keaton in a walk-on (or is it run-through?). Lester's breakneck pacing and rapid-fire cutting almost overcome the inherent staginess of the material, but it still has a certain stolid quality. The score is by Stephen Sondheim (1966).
