In life, Billy Fisher (Tom Courtenay) lives at home in Bradford with his parents and works for an undertaker (Leonard Rossiter). But in our hero's rich imagination, he is a military conqueror, a debonair playboy, a brilliant novelist and more. Problems arise when he gets his fantasies mixed up with reality. John Schlesinger's uproarious classic features a masterful comic turn by Courtenay and a charming debut by the luminous Julie Christie.
