" 'Nutter' runs small hotel" is the terse-but-true description given by an English catalog to the weekly comedy series Fawlty Towers. Created by John Cleese, the series stars Cleese as Basil Fawlty, the insufferable--and insufferably inept--owner-manager of a tenth-rate British hotel. Co-starring as Basil's equally impossible wife Sybil is Prunella Scales, while Connie Booth (who co-wrote and occasionally directed the series) is on hand as Jill-of-all trades Polly Sherman. First seen on the BBC in 1975, Fawlty Towers made it to American viewers by way of local PBS outlets in 1978.
