Marty Feldman Week! begins at Trailers from Hell with TV writer Alan Spencer introducing "The Last Remake of Beau Geste," which was so drastically re-cut by the studio before its release that Feldman rejected a positive New York Times review, writing the critic and telling him he was wrong.

Pop-eyed Brit comic Marty Feldman directs and stars in this wacky spoof chosen from a list of titles to which Universal owned the remake rights. Taken away from him and completely recut by the studio, it nevertheless ended up a critical and financial success. When the New York Times published a rave review, Feldman wrote a long letter to the critic telling him he was wrong. Apologies for the low picture quality of this transfer.
