A Gun for George 2011 15

17 mins United Kingdom

Matthew Holness (Garth Marenghi's Dark Place) writes, directs and stars in this witty short comedy. He plays Terry Finch, forgotten paperback writer of 'The Reprisalizer' series (titles include 'The Hell I Will' and 'I Right Wrong'). Discovering that his books are no longer stocked by the local libraries of Kent, Finch adopts the persona of his alter-ego to get them back on the shelves.
