Benny Hill, Who Done It, 1956
Benny Hill had just begun his famous TV show when, in 1956, he made his big screen-starring debut in one of the last Ealing comedies ever made.
The film co-starred Belinda Lee as a glamorous showgirl and David Kossoff as a dastardly foreign spy and was directed by BAFTA award-winning Basil Dearden.
Benny Hill plays a clumsy ice rink sweeper with delusions of grandeur, Hugo Dill fantasises about becoming a private investigator. When he wins both a bloodhound and a sum of money in a magazine competition, he decides the time is right to change career and fulfil his dream!
