Captain Bill

1936 British comedy film.

Captain Bill

Majestic scenes of the Thames provide a backdrop to the high-spirited clowning of rubber-faced vaudevillian Leslie Fuller in this breezy nautical comedy co-scripted by BAFTA nominee Val Valentine and Fuller's regular collaborator, Syd Courtenay. Direction is from silent film, Hal Roach and Laurel & Hardy veteran, Ralph Ceder.

Made at the height of his fame in 1935, Captain Bill features Fuller in the hugely popular role of the dim-witted Cockney - this time as a luckless bargee who unwittingly gets himself involved with a gang of gun-runners!

Also starring noted character player Hal Gordon, this classic comedy feature is presented here in a brand-new transfer from the original film elements, in its as-exhibited theatrical aspect ratio.
