Overview

While many Americans are familiar with British comedian Benny Hill from his long-running Thames Television sketch comedy series (which was widely syndicated in the United States), few are aware that Hill starred in an earlier series for the BBC from 1964 to 1967. This video in the Benny Hill: The Lost Years series collects highlights from these early black-and-white episodes; here, Benny satirizes Shakespeare, plays a hapless newsman, impersonates the world's fastest filmmaker, and portrays a German folk dancer with lecherous appetites.
