Man In The Moon

William Blood is Mr. Normal, yet he is also a rather strange man. He has an inability to worry, and an inability to become ill, enabling him to make his living as a human guinea pig. One assignment, from the Common Cold Research Station, finds him sleeping in a field. On waking, he sees a beautiful woman running to the railway station. But William is also immune to women... or so he believes.

When William reports his results, he is sacked for failing to contract a cold. Setting off to find another job, he bumps into the young woman, Polly, once again. However, a team of 'NASTI' scientists have an extraordinary mission planned for William: rather than risk the lives of highly trained astronauts, they want to send him to the moon. But has William finally succumbed to the disease that is incurable - love?

Kenneth More takes the lead role opposite Shirley Anne Field in this marvellously madcap sci-fi comedy directed by Basil Dearden and jointly scripted by the multi-award winning Bryan Forbes (Whistle Down The Wind) and Oscar-nominee Michael Relph (An Unsuitable Job For A Woman).
