"You Fill Me with Inertia"

Peter Cook is the devil. Dudley Moore sells his soul to him for seven wishes in order to get the girl of his dreams, a very young Eleanor Bron. The devil keeps showing up in his wishes to subvert them in whatever way is available. To exit the wish, Dudley must blow a raspberry.

In this wish, the devil has convinced Dudley that the most seductive persona would be a pop star.

One of the very best movies ever made. Should be an English Heritage site.

Dudley Moore was the organ scholar at my college, Magdalen. He wrote this music.

I saw this in utero. May account for my sense of humor. Apparently my mum was in hysterics.

Naturally the devil has the best tune : )
