Eddie in August Reviews:

Eddie is one of nature's losers. One day, he meets and falls in love with the lovely Kathy, and sets about trying to woo her. He buys a vehicle from a shady second-hand dealer, but it breaks down as he drives home. His attempts to impress her with his tennis testing technique go awry - he cannot hold up with his much-younger opponent. As attempt after attempt fails, the only zone where Eddie can be confidant of any success is his imagination...As part of Benny Hill's deal with Thames T.V. following his defection from the B.B.C., he got to write, star, compose the melody and co-direct ( with John Robins ) this short comedy film. Its been unseen for years, until it resurfaced recently as an additional on one of 'The Benny Hill Annual' D.V.D's. One would dearly love to describe it as a neglected comedy gem; sadly, it is not.'Eddie In August' was clearly influenced by the work of Jacques Tati and Charlie Chaplin. The story provides the ideal framework for a comedy, but inexplicably Hill fails to deliver much by the method of gags. It doesn't even come to life during Eddie's 'Billy Liar' kind daydreams. The effect is decidedly flat and tedious. It did not do well in the ratings when first broadcast, and Hill later returned to his regular show.


Sometimes nice comedians slip and allow us catch a glimpse of their melancholy side: think, first of all, Chaplin, the best of them all, or Louis de Funes' 'La soupe aux choux'. If we thought of this short movie of Benny's as being in the vein of his regular efforts, it may very much surprise us. As he has been so extensively implied in the making of this film, it probably had something of a confession. Despite some of his recurring jokes, it's not at all hilarious or bawdy. Even the nostalgic melody tells it clearly, there is no trace of Yakety Sax or banjos, so the tone is definitely sad. This is a somehow raw, yet touching tiny movie about loneliness, the last thing one would expect from Benny Hill. Perspective is so necessary to judge on things, thus we can say the same storyline in a comedic method or in a tragic way. What's now funny in slipping on a banana peel and falling, or in getting the ugly girl, or no woman at all? Here for once he says us bluntly: nothing. 'Comedy is acting optimistic' (Robin Williams).
