1980 Rated NR 1hr 43m

In the age before talkies, aspiring movie producer Arnie Cole (Bob Hoskins) is desperate for cash to finance his films. When he meets Maud (Frances de la Tour), a moneyed single, pregnant woman who's looking for respectability, the two enter into a marriage of convenience. But things get sticky as they learn to be partners in both business and life. This charming British miniseries expertly reflects the hypercomic pacing of early silent movies.
