With the release of these restored and put on Blu-ray I thought I would try a little poll to see not only which is the most popular (or neither) and how many die-hard Hancock fans we have on the forum.
For me it would be The Punch and Judy Man as I've always looked on this as a sort of "what happened next" when Tony finally got married and moved out of Earls Court.
Also, it reminds me of my carefree childhood days of late 1950s trips to the seaside, which I remember fondly through my rose-tinted specs.
The Rebel? It was OK and maybe it might like it a bit more if I watched it in Black & White. Also, as much as I love Irene Handl, for me Mrs Cravat will always be Patricia Hayes who played the part of seedy "lady who does" to perfection. The whole thing I thought was a bit silly though and not The Lad at all, and lacking the poignancy of The Punch and Judy Man, which was more Hancock's 'ammer.
