      Comments about Stop the World, I Want to Get Off (1966) (MOD):

      The 1963 Broadway musical was transferred to the screen with little fanfare and, most notably, without its original star and creator, Anthony Newley, in the lead role. That said, it has a decent performance by Tony Tanner as a Newley substitute and a delightful performance by Millicent Martin playing all of the women in Tanner's life. There is an unusual opening to the film over the credits which shows the audience arriving at the theatre to see the show while the actors are preparing backstage. The film is intended to be a live performance before an actual audience and this gimmick sometimes works. The score is the most interesting thing and it has songs that have since become standards. A must for Musical Theatre fans, others won't find much interest.
