The Sandwich Man

The Sandwich Man is a 1966 British comedy film starring Michael Bentine, Dora Bryan, Harry H. Corbett, Bernard Cribbins, Diana Dors, Norman Wisdom, Terry-Thomas and Ian Hendry. It was written by Bentine in conjunction with Robert Hartford-Davis. Hartford-Davis also produced the film.

Bentine takes the leading role, playing Horace Quilby, a sandwich board man whose job is to wander around London carrying advertisements. During the course of one day, Quilby meets a host of eccentric characters played by some of Britain's best known comedy actors, and becomes involved in a series of bizarre capers.

The film was poorly received at the time of its release, but has since achieved some cult status among film fans, particulerly for its backdrop of London in the Swinging Sixties.
