Oh Mr Porter! DVD Cover

Will Hay is one of the greatest British comedians of all time and his misanthropic antics have inspired many great funny men. A major star of the 1930s, he relished playing pompous, incompetent authority figures.

Hay is as memorably inept as ever, as a jumped up railway clerk in rural Ireland with ideas above his station. This comedy classic was selected by critic Derek Malcolm as one of the top 100 films of the twentieth century.
