Description
Gloatbridge, Fleetsnod, Dingle, and Proudfoot—a law firm from Bleak House? No, they're merely some of the characters in the 1960 British satire School for Scoundrels. Subtitled "How to Win Without Actually Cheating!", it was inspired by the "Gamesmanship" series of books by Stephen Potter. Played by Ian Carmichael (of the BBC's Lord Peter Wimsey fame), Henry Palfrey is an abject failure in sport and love. He enrolls at a "School of Lifemanship" run by Dr. Potter (Alastair Sim), who teaches him how to win in life and vanquish his rival (Terry-Thomas). The screenplay was co-written by Peter Ustinov and American screenwriter Frank Tarloff, who was working in Britain after being blacklisted by McCarthy.

"Terry-Thomas in particular is outstanding as a classic British bounder."—British Film Institute
