The British Empire takes it on the chin in Stiff Upper Lips, an outrageous send-up of Merchant Ivory's well-known costume epics, airing November 19, 2000, at 9pm on PBS.
This hilarious satire starring Prunella Scales and Peter Ustinov targets such favorites as A Room With a View, Howards End, Chariots of Fire, Lady Chatterley's Lover, Upstairs, Downstairs and The Jewel in the Crown. Is nothing sacred?
