Richard Lester’s 1965 slapstick rendition of the London stage hit about two men, one who knows how to get girls and the other who wants to learn, never quite comes off, but Lester’s fine sense of comic timing and clever visual style keep this rollicking comic exercise pretty much on keel. One notch below the inspired standard of A Hard Day’s Night, made the year before. With Rita Tushingham, Michael Crawford, and Ray Brooks. 84 min.
