The Horse's Mouth

An Oscar and BAFTA-nominated landmark British comedy, The Horse's Mouth is Ronald Neame's film of Joyce Cary's classic novel.

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).
