5.0 out of 5 stars A MERCILESS & ACCURATE PICTURE OF ACTORS WHO LIVE FROM HAND TO MOUTH., 27 Sept. 2007
This review is from: The Comedy Man [VHS] [1963] (VHS Tape)
Kenneth More is The Comedy Man in this cinemazation of Douglas Hayes' novel. Having spent most of his life playing the provinces in obscurity, More gives the London TV scene a try. He fails at attaining stardom on his own terms, but becomes a celebrity on TV commercials. After basking in fame for a while, More decides that he's sold out and returns to regional repertory. Matching More's terrific starring performance are such British "regulars" as Dennis Price, Billie Whitelaw, Cecil Parker, Norm Rossington, and Frank Finlay.

I meet Douglas Hayes in the late 70s - when he came to Cornwall for a holiday.
The strange part I only say the film 2 or 3 weeks before I meet him, so I knew the name - Douglas Hayes.
A true gentleman - sadly I lost contact. It is great to see the film "The Comedy Man" being re-issued.
