NOTHING BUT THE BEST is 1964 British comedy drama in which a socially ambitious young real estate clerk engages the services of a down-and-out aristocrat to teach him how to infiltrate and mix with the upper class.

Sex

Mild innuendo and sex references include a male character saying, "She's strictly Division Three but one has to keep in practice" as he takes a young woman back to his room, a woman inviting a man into a room for a glass of brandy, a man, referring to his landlady, saying both, "Isn't that typical of a landlady. Puritan in the front hall and nympho in the back bedroom" and "All quiet on the nympho front".

Language

Mild bad language includes the terms 'bastard', 'bitch' and 'bloody.

Other issues include several scenes of smoking, an implied murder by strangulation and an innocuous reference to cocaine.
