Movie Info

Tony Hancock, as big a comedy star as it was possible to be in the Britain of 1963, decided to pull a "Charlie Chaplin" with The Punch and Judy Man. He plays an end-of-pier seashore entertainer who is loved by children but reviled by adults. Hancock's efforts to establish himself as a man of importance invariably end in disappointment and despair. Not even Tony Hancock's legion of fans could be persuaded to drink up the bathos ladled out in The Punch and Judy Man. Ironically, Hancock in real life ended up committing suicide in 1968. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

Critic Reviews for Punch and Judy Man

All Critics (1)

At some time, in someone's mind, The Punch and Judy Man existed as a distinctive and very engaging comedy. It hasn't come through on the screen quite like this, but one warms all the same to its performance and to its little, lugubrious jokes.
