The Richard Massingham Collection (DVD)
This BFI collection celebrates Richard Massingham as one of British cinema's most enduring eccentrics.
As the well-meaning, but bumbling everyman in a series of imaginative and iconic short films, Richard Massingham was recognisable to anyone who went to the cinema in Britain during the 1940s. Providing instructions to the British public on everything from how to cross the road, the correct way to use a handkerchief and the art of saving water at bath time, Massingham managed to entertain and inform in equal measure.
This collection from the BFI celebrates Richard Massingham as one of British cinema's most fascinating and enduring eccentrics, to rank alongside other greats of British cinema history.
