The Horse's Mouth Film Poster


Ronald Neame directs this perceptive comic study of the struggle of artistic creation, based on the novel by Joyce Cary. Starring Alec Guinness, who also wrote the screenplay, the film tells the story of Gulley Jimson (Guinness), an ageing and impoverished London painter who is rude, uncouth, eccentric - and obsessed with his work to the point where nothing and nobody can come between him and his artistic passion.
