Richard Hearne's Best Film
10 April 2002 | by (England) – See all my reviews

A wonderfully simple story of Mr Ningle (Richard Hearne) who lost his job in the City many years ago, but didn't like to tell the wife. So off he goes to Town each day in his pinstripe and bowler, collects his mail and then changes clothes and works as a pavement artist. Unfortunately Bill Shine is sent by Garry Marsh to tail him, as Ningle might not be a suitable father-in-law. When Ningle escapes detection, Shine calls the police. They find Ningle's clothes and assume he's been done in. A suspicious character seen near the scene is of course Ningle himself and the police set out to track Ningle in connection with his own "death"! But it ends with a frantic scooter chase, happily ever after!
