Governor's Speech 5. Klientele (Remix) - Sylk Smoov - Klientele Mans Start 6. Arrival Of The Duke 7. Solo performer: Peter Ustinov spoken word, sound effects. This surreal classic find the late Peter Ustinov performing all the voices and effects for an imaginary car race in Gibraltar--strange, funny, and wonderful.
Some of it's much funnier if you're a racing aficionado than if you aren't, and it's more often modestly funny than uproarious though it is uproarious on occasion. Still, the 55 minutes of comic sketches based around a fictional Grand Prix in Gibraltar are admirably done and, according to Ustinov's comments in the detailed historical liner notes to the CD reissue, not even done with the use of a prepared script.
The most impressive facet is Ustinov's skill at mimicking the voices and inflections of various nationalities, whether they're American, British, German, French, Italian, or Russian all of the non-Anglo characters speak in accented English, of course. These are as skilled and comic as the somewhat more celebrated talents in this arena by Peter Sellers, with much of the humor due to Ustinov's timing and nuance rather than the content, as when he portrays the way over-serious Germans or the ridiculously stuffy and upper-crust British official.
For it's fairly hip, with the governor dying immediately as he lowers his The Arrival Of The Duke - Peter Ustinov - The Grand Prix Of Gibraltar! to start the race, the race ending inconclusively without a winner, the Germans boasting of being slaves to machines, absurdities sailing right over the American interviewer character's head, and the like.
