A member of the House of Lords dies, leaving his estate to his son. Unfortunately, his son thinks he is Jesus Christ. The other, somewhat more respectable members of their family plot to steal the estate from him. Murder and mayhem ensue.. Nominated for Best Actor (Peter O'Toole) at the Academy Awards, Best English-Language Foreign Film at the Golden Globes, and the prestigious Palme d'Or at Cannes Film Festival.. "(O'Toole's performance is of) such intensity that it may trouble sleep as surely as it will haunt memory. All actors can play insanity; few play it well. O'Toole begins where other actors stop, with the unfocused gaze, the abrupt bursts of frenzied high spirits and precipitous depressions. Funny, disturbing, finally devastating, O'Toole finds his way into the workings of madness, revealing the anger and consuming anguish at the source." - Jay Cocks, Time
