The Bed Sitting Room (1969) Set in post-nuclear-holocaust England, where a handful of bizarre characters struggle on with their lives in the ruins, amongst endless heaps of ash, piles of broken crockery and brick, muddy plains, and heaps of dentures and old boots. Patriotically singing "God Save Mrs. Etheyl Shroake, Long Live Mrs. Etheyl Shroake", they wander through this surrealistic landscape, forever being warned by the police to "keep moving", and prone to the occasional mutation into a parrot, cupboard, or even, yes, a bed sitting room with "No Wogs" scrawled in the grime on it's windows. In particular, this story revolves around the odd "love story" of a girl who lives with her parents in one compartment of a London Underground train, the commuter in the next compartment, and the doctor they meet after returning above ground in search of a nurse for the heavily pregnant girl.

  • Penelope: British? What a lot of use that is - we don't even know who's won the war!
  • Inspector: [part of long, mock Churchillian speech] ... the lion shall lie down with the lamb, the goat shall give suck to the tiny bee...
  • Sergeant: [at various points in film, shouting out of police car] Keep moving!
  • Mate: And in come the three bears. The Daddy Bear said, "Who's been sleeping in my porridge?" - and the mummy bear said, "that's no porridge, that was my wife!"
  • Mother: [On being shown her own death certificate by the nurse] Well, you can't argue with it. I thought I was alive, but there it is in black and white... Do I lie down or something?
Movie Trivia:
  • The revised National Anthem lyrics are.... 'God save Mrs Ethel Shroake, Long live Mrs Ethel Shroake, God save Mrs Ethel Shroake of 393A High Street, Leytonstone'
  • According to Ronnie Barker's authorized biography Jack Shepard is dubbed by Barker.
  • Richard Lester is said to have been depressed that many of the outdoor locations were found so quickly, and needed so little modification.
  • Ethel Shroake was the Queen's Char Lady.
  • It is never explicitly stated who started the war, and who the British were fighting. It was, however, supposedly the shortest war in history.
