|J. Pierrepont Finch is a viciously ambitious young man. Armed with a How to Succeed self-help book and a ruthless determination to get ahead he launches a campaign to get ahead in business by any means necessary A surprisingly boyish Robert Morse manages to pull off the tricky manoeuvre of taking a successful Broadway musical and making it work on the big screen. Big musical numbers, superbly of art direction and a wonderfully tongue-in-cheek style make this a lost classic of the era|

Even in 2015 it's relevant and has the power to entertain.
I could not watch the TV series Mad Men(2007-2015) without thinking of this 1967 movie. Robert Morse, the lead in How To Succeed In Business Without Really Trying, also plays Bertram Cooper in Mad Men (2007-2015). Forty years on and he hasn't changed a bit. He still has that familiar gap-toothed grin and sparkle in his eyes. It made me rush to the computer and order a copy of this old musical romcom. The premise of the movie is that you could use the lessons in a self-help book to speed your way up the corporate ladder from mail room to CEO in record time. Interweave a budding romance, some difficult situations, and some very memorable songs, and you've got a winning movie. Funny and endearing.
