The acclaimed and often contentious late 19th-century collaboration that produced a litany of enduringly popular comic operas gets a opulent if fanciful dramatization in this British biopic, with Robert Morley as the lawyer-turned-librettist W.S. Gilbert, Maurice Evans as the aspiring classicist composer Arthur Sullivan, and Peter Finch as their producer and frequent referee Richard D'Oyly Carte. G&S number re-creations are a highlight; Eileen Herlie, Dinah Sheridan, Isabel Dean also star. AKA: "Gilbert and Sullivan," "The Great Gilbert and Sullivan."109 min. Standard; Soundtrack: English.
