Rentadick

Rentadick is a 1972 British comedy film, directed by Jim Clark and starring James Booth, Richard Briers, Julie Ege, Ronald Fraser and Donald Sinden.[1] It is a spoof spy/detective picture, the plot of which involves attempts to protect a new experimental nerve gas.

Production

The original script for the film was written by Graham Chapman and John Cleese, both of Monty Python. However, the producers made so many changes to the duo's material (including commissioning additional material from John Fortune and John Wells) that Chapman and Cleese successfully instigated action to have their names removed from the finished print. This left Rentadick with very peculiar on-screen acknowledgements; the only writing credit is given to Fortune and Wells, who are explicitly credited only with "additional dialogue". However, the British firm Network Distributing released a DVD in 2007 using a print that still shows the names of Cleese and Chapman during the opening titles (frames at 2:00 minutes into the presentation), and uses their names in its promotional material.[2]
