No Hancock in BFI Comedy Genius Season?
29th September, 2018
We are big fans of the BFI. And big fans of comedy, especially British comedy. So we were disappointed to see that the BFI's Comedy Genius season isn't showing any of the (admittedly few) big screen outings of the Lad Himself, Tony Hancock. Whatever the critics said at the time, his two starring vehicles are classics (The Rebel, known in the US as Call Me Genius, and The Punch and Judy Man) and his cameos in The Wrong Box and Those Magnificent Men in their Flying Machines lift both those films.
