The producers of Mad Men were surely giving a nod to this exuberant 1960s satire of the New York corporate world when they cast Robert Morse (here playing youthful go-getter J Pierrepont Finch) as wise, seen-it-all agency boss Bert Cooper. Based on a stage musical, this is a cynical but never sour look at climbing the greasy pole, and features wholehearted performances, clever songs and timeless truisms along the way. The period design is gorgeous, but the film never seems stuck in its own time.
This blackly comic satire examines the greed at the heart of the US tobacco industry through a cigarette firm employee trying to deny smoking's risks.
