STIFF UPPER LIP, JEEVES

by | Read by Michael Hordern, Richard Briers and a Full Cast

Audio Theater • 3 hrs. • Audio Program • © 1963

Bertie Wooster, the young Englishman with more money than brains, and his clever and serenely efficient valet, Jeeves, are drawn to Totleigh Manor, where Bertie must be kept from the marital clutches of the simpering Madeline Bassett. Veteran actor Michael Hordern plays Jeeves as dry, supercilious, and long suffering. Richard Briers is a splendid and especially lively Bertie. The other actors are good, if at times a bit over the top. The one American accent is unconvincing, and the listener must, if possible, ignore smatterings of the easy racism of early-twentieth-century England. Otherwise, this farce, full of bluster and silliness, will entertain almost any listener and will delight Wodehouse fans. W.M. © AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine [Published: OCT/NOV 08]
