A half-hour silent film, starring Benny Hill in a tale of unrequited love.
Did You Know?
This one-off special was the end result of a pledge by Thames Television to allow Benny Hill
to direct such a program, as part of their successful bid to lure him away from the BBC. However, although well-received, relatively lackluster ratings coupled with behind-the-scenes problems with the technicians' union also made this Hill's directorial swan song, and he would confine himself to hour-long comedy-variety specials for the balance of his run with Thames.
