The Green Man DVD


Meet Maurice Allington. This money grabber, alcoholic, letch and all round oddball is owner of the ‘quaint’ country inn, The Green Man. When he isn’t trying to bed them, he’s regaling his guests with tales of the ghosts and ghouls who haunt his hotel. The fun really begins when Maurice realises the phantoms are real – and they’re not playing his game. Part sex farce, part supernatural thriller, this ghost story will have you screaming…with laughter! Based on the 1969 satirical ghost story by Kingsley Amis and adapted by Malcolm Bradbury (The History Man, Eating... People is Wrong) this BBC series won a BAFTA for Best Original Music. Albert Finney (Big Fish, Annie, Skyfall) takes the lead as the slimy Maurice alongside co-stars Josie Lawrence and Michael Hordern (Where Eagles Dare, Gandhi, Labyrinth). [show more]

Elijah Moshinsky directs this TV adaptation of the novel by Kingsley Amis. Maurice Allington (Albert Finney) is a promiscuous and alcoholic owner of the mysterious Green Man Inn.

The cast also includes Philip Franks, Clement Freud and Josie Lawrence.
