Description
One of the BBC's most revered miniseriesónominated for 10 BAFTAs in 1979 and winner for Best Programme/SeriesóDennis Potter's Pennies From Heaven offers a profound and personal statement on the liberating potential of popular song and was later made into a Hollywood film starring Steve Martin. Part everyman drama, part Busby Berkeley spectacle, this unique musical follows the amorous and financial struggles of sheet-music salesman Arthur Parker (Bob Hoskins) during the Depression in England. By juxtaposing the life-affirming qualities of big band music with the degrading realities enveloping Parkerórape, prostitution, bankruptcy, and homicideóPotter examines the resilience of the human spirit in the face of total humiliation.
