Henry (George Cole) a mild-mannered bank-clerk is hypnotised by the Great Mendoza (Alan Badel)

A few evenings ago a new British film farce was added without notice to the advertised programme at a London suburban cinema. The object of such a 'Sneak Preview' is to find out the reaction of an average cinema audience to the pace of the film and the timing of laughs.
This programme takes viewers into the foyer and into the auditorium where they join the audience for the opening scenes of 'Will Any Gentleman?'
An Associated British Picture Corporation Film starring George Cole, Veronica Hurst, Jon Pertwee, Heather Thatcher, James Hayter
