    The Oscar and BAFTA nominated landmark British comedy The Horse's Mouth is released for the very first time on DVD in the UK on 20 October 2008 by Eureka Entertainment

    In Ronald Neame's film of Joyce Cary's classic novel, Alec Guinness transforms himself into one of cinema's most indelible comic figures: the somewhat vulgar but dedicated painter in search of his artistic vision, Gulley Jimson. As the ill-behaved Jimson searches for a perfect canvas, he determines to let nothing come between himself and the realization of his exalted vision. A perceptive examination of the struggle of artistic creation, The Horse's Mouth is also Neame's comic masterpiece.

    Starring the Oscar winning actor Alec Guinness (Star Wars, Lawrence of Arabia, The Bridge on the River Kwai, Doctor Zhivago) and directed by the Oscar nominated Ronald Neame (Poseidon Adventure)
