Captain Bill DVD Cover

The Thames provides a backdrop to the high-spirited clowning of rubber-faced vaudevillian Leslie Fuller in this breezy nautical comedy co-scripted by BAFTA nominee Val Valentine and Fuller's regular collaborator, Syd Courtenay. Direction comes from silent-era and Hal Roach/Laurel & Hardy veteran Ralph Ceder.

Made at the height of his fame in 1935, Captain Bill features Fuller in the hugely popular role of the dim-witted Cockney – this time as a luckless bargee who unwittingly gets himself involved with a gang of gun-runners!

Also starring Fuller's stalwart sidekick Hal Gordon, this classic comedy feature is presented here in a brand-new transfer from the original film elements, in its as-exhibited theatrical aspect ratio.
