        “A fair day’s walk for a fair day’s pay”
        - motto of the Sandwich Men’s Brotherhood


      • Modern advertising can take many forms, but for both mobility and sheer economy nothing can match the Sandwich Man. These walking billboards with human fillings are amongst the sights of most big cities and afford a unique angle from which to observe life. Horace Quilby is a Sandwich Man who works on behalf of Finklebaum and O’Casey - dealers in ‘misfit clothing’ - and is a resplendent sight in his top hat and tails as he walks the London streets. Today is no ordinary day for Horace, however, as Esmerelda, his racing pigeon, is taking part in the race of her life.

        A wonderful, lovable film full of gentle comedy and joyous optimism, featuring ex-Goon Michael Bentine in perhaps his best role - that of Horace Quilby, Sandwich Man. Written by both Bentine and director Robert Hartford-Davies, The Sandwich Man features a stellar cast of British comedy talent from the ‘60s who, alongside the marquee names, also include Alfie Bass, Peter Jones, John le Mesurier, Warren Mitchell, Jeremy Lloyd, Burt Kwouk and Suzy Kendall, all aiming to help (and hinder!) Horace in his odyssey around London.
