Spike Milligan

Wide-ranging, honest and revelatory conversation with the former Goon, who was about to begin a new phase of his career.

Inside Film 1967 40 mins


Bernard Braden's self-financed interviews, grouped under the Now and Then banner, were never slick. But technical finesse was sacrificed for outspoken comment from key public figures. Milligan offers lucid, eloquent opinions on patriotism, pornography, religion, war and his own problems. Braden's persuasive style teases out a depth of thinking that few in 1967 would have credited Milligan with.
