The Horse's Mouth (1958)

Alec Guinness plays artist Gulley Jimson



The Horse's Mouth



'The film begins with the release of the eccentric painter Gulley Jimson (Alec Guinness) from a one-month jail sentence for telephone harassment of his sponsor, Mr Hickson (Ernest Thesiger). Nosey Barbon (Mike Morgan), who wants to be a protégé of Jimson, greets Jimson at Wormwood Scrubs, but Jimson tries to discourage Nosey from pursuing painting for a living. Jimson makes off with Nosey's bike to make his way back to his houseboat, which Coker, an older lady friend, has been attending in Jimson's absence.'
