Essential Terry Thomas?

Just picked up Danger: Diabolik and just loved Terry Thomas' character. I know he has a huge body of work, can anyone reccommend 3 or 4 of his funniest roles? Thanks.

I just finished watching I'm All Right, Jack! this morning. TT has a good but rather small role as a business executive. Best part: when he's reading items from a suggestion box:

Spoiler:
although not read out loud, TT's reaction implies that the suggestion is for him to go fuck himself or something similarly lewd. TT quietly pockets it, presumably for later review.


The Anchor Bay DVD is quite good. The movie provides constant amusement, if not many laugh-out-loud moments. The movie is well paced, the script is good from start to finish, the B&W photography is very nice, and Ian Carmichael and Peter Sellers are both good in their roles.

I had to reach out to R2 to get my hands on one of my favorites, MAKE MINE MINK. If you're region-free, grab it!

Those Magnificent Men in Their Flying Machines. Always the first thing that springs to mind when Terry Thomas is mentioned. Oh, and Dr Phibes.
