30 hand-picked films. A new one every day
Diary of Nobody is a much-loved late-Victorian comic novel, the diary of fictitious City of London bank clerk, Charles Pooter. Ken Russell adapted the novel in the style of a silent film.
Delightfully whimsical comic-strip rendering of Grossmith's episodic original with suitably droll narration and dotty visuals. It never outstays its welcome and it's a shame this scuttling little gem hasn't found a wider audience.
