The Mouse That Roared (1959)
Silver Screen 2019: Animalia
Peter Sellers, Jean Seberg, William Hartnell
The hilarious story of how the peace-loving Duchy of Grand Fenwick, the smallest country in the world nestled in the French Alps, waged war on the USA – and won. When Grand Fenwick finds itself on the wrong end of a trade dispute with the States, the country’s Prime Minister (Sellers) and King (also Sellers) declare war and launch an invasion force of chain mail-clad archers. The plan goes terribly wrong yet they inflict a surprising defeat with curious consequences.
