The Horse's Mouth
Alec Guinness, who also wrote the screenplay, transforms himself into one of cinema's most indelible comic figures: the somewhat vulgar but dedicated painter in search of his artistic vision, Gulley Jimson. As the ill-behaved Jimson searches for a perfect canvas, he determines to let nothing come between himself and the realisation of his exalted vision.
A perceptive examination of the struggle of artistic creation, The Horse's Mouth is also Neame's comic masterpiece. Starring the Oscar-winning actor Sir Alec Guinness and directed by the Oscar-nominated Ronald Neame (The Poseidon Adventure).

If ordering from a UK store, please note that you are in Region 1 (DVD)/Region A (Blu-ray), whilst the UK is in Region 2/B, respectively. This means that many - but by no means all - may fail to play. Look for products marked "Region free", "All regions", "Region 0" or "Multi-region". Blu-rays may also be marked "Region A/B/C", or variations thereof. You may also check whether your DVD/Blu-ray player supports multi-region playback (also referred to as "region free"), or whether it can be set to do so. There should, of course, be no problems with books, CDs, or other physical items.
