(1987, 89 mins, Amnesty International, Directed by Ken O'Neill)

After a six-year hiatus, the "Secret Policeman's Ball" shows resumed with a strong hybrid of comedy and music. The humor reflected the emergence of a new wave of comedic performers in the UK including: Hugh Laurie ("House M.D."), Stephen Fry ("Blackadder" and "Peter's Friends"), Robbie Coltrane ("Cracker" and "Nuns On The Run"), Dawn French & Jennifer Saunders (creators of "Absolutely Fabulous"), Mel Smith & Griff Rhys Jones, ("Alas Smith & Jones"), Lenny Henry - and the Spitting Image puppets. Lending support and continuity was John Cleese. The stellar lineup of musicians includes: Peter Gabriel, Kate Bush, Pink Floyd's David Gilmour, Dire Strait's Mark Knopfler, Joan Armatrading, Bob Geldof, Duran Duran and - for the first time - some American guests: Jackson Browne, Lou Reed and Chet Atkins. This will be the US Premiere of the film.
