The Breaking Of Bumbo

The Breaking Of Bumbo

Richard Warwick and Joanna Lumley star in this sexy, exuberant comedy charting the travails of a young guardsman learning to become an officer.

Bumbo Bailey, a newly commissioned Ensign of the Household Brigade, considers his social life every bit as important as his military career. But his troubles begin when he falls in with the luscious Susie and her friend Jock, whose principal occupation is organising anti-war demonstrations. When they decide to protest outside Wellington Barracks, Bumbo's military career is soon in jeopardy!

Adapting his bestselling novel, The Breaking Of Bumbo draws on the youthful experiences of director Andrew Sinclair: it is a time-capsule portrait of military rigour competing with the era's burgeoning sexual and social freedoms, set against a picture-postcard backdrop of Swinging-Sixties London. The Breaking Of Bumbo is presented uncut in a brand-new transfer from the original film elements in its as-exhibited theatrical ratio.
