Gulley Jimson is broke, difficult, conniving, uncouth, and a welcher - but an artist. The visions in his head may not really satisfy him when realized, but the quest continues, for the perfect wall. The Beeders leave for six weeks of vacation and return to find a 7000 pound committment and the wall of their living room a national treasure, even though living with a wall mural of feet is not their cup of tea. Then - in a bombed out church scheduled for demolition - THE wall that can become his vision. Written by

It's very simple. This film has meant a lot to me. An enlightened art teacher from high school played this for us in class. I haven't been the same since. I can't say I know much of Alec Guinness's work, but I count him as a personal favorite based on this performance alone. I recommend it to anyone who wants to be creatively inspired.
