In Stop the World I Want to Get Off, all the world is Littlechap's stage and the beleaguered, wisecracking hero of this captivating new-style musical by Leslie Bricusse and Anthony Newley is your guide for the tuneful life's journey of an average bloke seeking love, wealth and career success. Shot on it's original circus-ring set during a performance at the Lyric Hammersmith, the film offers a front-row seat for the charming mummery and incisive commentary of the London/Broadway hit. Tony Tanner (who followed original star Newley) makes a lithe, raffish Littlechap, whose learning curve for navigating life's curveballs is devilishly steep. Two-time Tony nominee Millicent Martin blithely incarnates the typically English/Russian/Japanese and all-American women who confound him. And the score by the future collaborators on Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory including beloved standards Gonna Build a Mountain, Once in a Lifetime and What Kind of Fool Am I? is the show- and world-stopping centerpiece that'll make you glad to get on.
