name Benny Hill as a tribute to his favourite comedian Jack Benny. Hill

Men in Their Flying Machines (1965) and Chitty Chitty Bang Bang
(1968) but he is best remembered for his often lewd and
now politically incorrect TV shows which were cancelled
in 1989 against a tide of new, alternative comedy.

slumped in a chair in front of the television. To download
