One Way Pendulum

I'm very much looking forward to this weekend, as I'll finally have a chance to see this wonderfully obscure and absurd filmic masterpiece on the big screen.  One Way Pendulum was directed by Peter Yates in 1964 and features a classic oddball cast including Eric Sykes, George Cole and Jonathan Miller. To commemorate the event, my good friend Marc [of Kingly Books] designed this rather nifty silkscreened poster. Here's a little  clip featuring Jonathan Miller as he attempts to teach some weighing machines how to sing.

I've been trying to find this film for years - saw it once on TV decades ago and often wondered if it was really as brilliant as I remember. Any idea if it will ever appear on DVD?
