BillyLiar 50th Anniversary

StudioCanal is pleased to announce the 50th Anniversary release of Billy Liar on fully restored DVD & Blu-Ray for the first time in the UK on 6th May 2013.

Based on the well-loved book by Keith Waterhouse, Tom Courtenay delivers a star-making turn as William Terrence Fisher (Billy Liar) in one of the most memorable and universally acclaimed films of the 60s.

Running from an unsympathetic working-class family, a pair of demanding fiancées and an insecure job at an undertakers, Billy escapes, Walter Mitty-like, into a world of fantasy where he can realize his dream ambitions. As work and family pressures build to new intolerable levels, Liz (an early, charismatic turn from Julie Christie), enters his drab life and offers Billy the one real chance he'll ever get to leave

the past behind.

Scripted by Keith Waterhouse from his own novel and sensitively directed by John Schlesinger (Midnight Cowboy), Billy Liar is one of the few comedies of the British 'New Wave', marrying visual and verbal wit with a rather poignant rumination on the futility of dreams.

Celebrating the 50th anniversary of the screen adaptation of Billy Liar, the British Library will hold an exclusive London screening of the digitally restored DVD, introduced by close friend of Keith Waterhouse, Sir Michael Parkinson, on Friday 26 April. The archive of Keith Waterhouse was donated to the British Library last year and this April the Library will publish two new Waterhouse titles.

  • Remembering Billy Liar with Tom Courtenay and Helen Fraser
  • Interview with Richard Ayoade
  • A look through the Keith Waterhouse Archive with British Library Curator Zoe Wilcox
  • Interview with Saint Etienne's Bob Stanley
