    Hi, can anyone help with a screwball UK comedy I saw on TV in 1973 - it's been haunting me ever since. I only remeber bits of the plot - this rather good-looking girl gets a boob job, and sets about getting revenge from ex-bosses, boyfriends who've wronged her in the past in devious ways. One episode features someone somersaulting through a window, and also a number of ladies flying high up into the air as their bosoms inflate...?

    It was Stockard Channing in The Girl Most Likely To. Made in 1973.

    I thought of that one, but that's an American movie and she is fat and unattractive and has plastic surgery after a car accident (I think) and no one recognizes her. I don't think there is any mention of a boob job and any gags about it. It is a pretty funny black comedy with her knocking off everyone who wronged her.

    Well that's the film I recall where she gets a girl to do somersaults along a corridor and then out of an open window to her death.

    Yeah, I forgot about that. Maybe that is the movie and Androosha doesn't remember it exactly right, which is not uncommon. But how coud you not recognize Ed Asner who couldn't be confused with an English cop?

    I think the original poster is saying it's a British comedy series ("One episode features ..."), so this must narrow it down quite a lot as I can't imagine too many featuring inflatable bosoms. Sounds more like a sketch from Monty Python or The Goodies.

    In case it's what androosha is looking for, can see if it looks familiar.

    The word episode in the original query refers to the way the film is made. It is episodic in the delivery of each persons demise.

    Now I want to see it again. I saw it when it first came on and several years ago.

    Hi only available on dvd region 1 (USA)



    Stockard Channing is Miriam, an "ugly duckling" who is dumped on by everyone. After her heart is broken by a callous campus jock, Miriam tearfully speeds off in her car and is involved in a serious accident. Plastic surgery is required, and when Miriam emerges from behind the bandages, she is ravishingly beautiful. It's payback time when she uses her new attractiveness to exact revenge on all those who wronged her. Ed Asner plays the police inspector who's hot on the trail of the femme fatale. A dark comedy written by Joan Rivers, THE GIRL MOST LIKELY TO... will leave you in stitches!



    I viewed this the other month and enjoyed it. If you want it and find there is a problem please pm me.



    All the best for the New Year Chris B
