Holy grail dentist on the job
Dentist on the Job is a 1961 British comedy film directed by C.M. Pennington-Richards, the sequel to Dentist in the Chair (1960). It was released in the US with the title Get on with It!. The film was co-written by Hugh Woodhouse and Hazel Adair. It stars Bob Monkhouse. Other actors appearing in the film include Kenneth Connor, Ronnie Stevens, Shirley Eaton, Richard Wattis and Charles Hawtrey.
Colonel Proudfoot of Proudfoot Industries tries to entice a couple of newly qualified dentists to advertise "Dreem", a revolutionary type of toothpaste, but he knows that if the dentists learn that they are part of an advertising campaign, they will be struck off, and the campaign will be a disaster.
The studio logos, opening credits and a brief portion of the opening scene is added to the start of Monty Python and the Holy Grail on its special edition DVD. The clip ends with a sputtering, unseen "projectionist" realising he has played the wrong film. A "slide" then appears urging the audience to wait while the projectionist changes reels.
