Synopsis

When an English earl dies under embarrassing circumstances, the title passes to his son Jack (Peter O’Toole), who has been locked away for 8 years after claiming to be the second coming of Jesus Christ—much to the dismay of the rest of the family, who’d like nothing more than Jack out of the way.
