(1960, Robert Hamer) Perpetually losing out to absolute rotter Terry-Thomas, Ian Carmichael discovers the Lifeman College run by Professor Alastair Sim, and discovers the not-always-ethical secrets of getting ahead in business, on the tennis court, and in love. From the director of Kind Hearts and Coronets. With Jenette Scott and Dennis Price (the schemer of Kind Hearts).
