    50s comedy featuring a young(ish) Pertwee and Hartnell (scre Views: 689
     Wednesday, March 11 2009 @ 06:05 PM EDT
    I just watched the 1953 comedy Will Any Gentleman..? which might be of interest to 'Who fans wanting to see the stars before they became The Doctor.
    It stars George Cole as a dull bank clerk with Jon Pertwee co-starring as his fun loving brother. William Hartnell features in a supporting role as a grumpy detective.
    It's no great classic but it's a fun little film if you like this era of British cinema. A hypnotist, an amorous maid, a domineering mother-in-law, a bumbling old doctor, some stolen bank notes and lots of running about. You get the idea Big Grin.

    Here are a few screen captures





    Some people might recognise the maid in this next still as Joan Sims of countless Carry On... films but also from Doctor Who as Katryca in The Mysterious Planet.

    Thanks for sharing them here. This is back when Pertwee was looking like Danny Kaye. It's interesting to see him and Hartnell together here and in colour nonetheless.

    Cheers,
    Louis
