Everything You Always Wanted to Know About Acting

Just when you thought it was safe to go back into the West End…. The masked man of Theatreland has returned. It was a marvellous success, which made me feel all warm and bubbly inside — the same feeling I get after a particularly tasty bottle of Dom. But then came the inevitable question: what next? Then, one evening, towards the end of a particularly lengthy walk on Hampstead Heath listening to Elaine Paige warbling on my pocket gramophone the iGram , I suddenly felt inspiration begin to stir and swell deep within me. And so I rushed home, drew the curtains in my mahogany-clad study, and started fingering my keyboard with vigour. It would be a practical manual covering absolutely everything — how to see the hits and not the shits, how to avoid neck pain and deep vein thrombosis in the balcony, and how to save precious pennies on tickets, so you can afford the overpriced interval drinks and souvenir programmes instead.

It consists of a series of short sequences loosely inspired by Dr. David Reuben 's book of the same name. The credits at the start and close of the film are played over a backdrop of a large mass of white rabbits, to the tune of " Let's Misbehave " by Cole Porter. An August review by Time said that many of the film's ideas "sound good on paper" but that the "skits wind down rather than take off from the ideas"; the film includes "some broad, funny send-ups of other movies Fantastic Voyage , La notte , and its fair share of memorably wacky lines" but that "overall it is just Woody marking time and being merely a little funnier". The Time Out Film Guide noted that some of the film's sketches are "dross, but the parodies of Antonioni all angst and alienation of a wife who can achieve orgasm only in public places and of TV panel games 'What's My Perversion?
