Satire at its best…

…And wit. And, finally, satirists, who are needed as truth is needed-for is not satire, simply, truth grinning in a solemn canting world? “ Gore Vidal, United States Essays 1952-1992 Pg. 30

Nanette Parry

The most delightful character in Make Mine Mink is character actress Hattie Jacques who plays Nanette Parry. Her facial expressions are simply marvelous darling. I want to watch the film again and again just to study her facial expressions.

This whimsical, funny and thrilling film is a must see for all. It is offbeat and hilarious. Terry Thomas at his best. The film is about how some unusual characters get together for bizarre reasons. The motif of the film sounds like something that might be tried today, which is to take from the rich and give to the poor…or your favorite charity.

A British “B” film that is in your face humor with an excellent soundtrack that will make you laugh, giggle and spill your coffee.
