The incredible, hilarious insider's story of Britain's favourite film company! 

It all started when Beatle George Harrison stepped in to fund Life of Brian when Monty Python's original backers pulled out. His company, HandMade films, went on to make some of the best British films of the 80s (Withnail and I, Time Bandits and Mona Lisa among them), but then things started to go wrong... This is the incredible and often hilarious insiders' story of what happened...
Robert Sellers is the author of many film books, including Hellraisers and a biography of Harrison Ford.

Editorial Reviews

"Many fascinating and even painful anecdotes throughout Very Naughty Boys." - Fixlist "Very Naughty Boys is a funny (and eventually sad) and fact-filled book about filmmaking that should be required reading for all Python, George Harrison, and British film enthusiasts." - Culture Mass"Very Naughty Boys is essential reading—above all for readers with an affinity for The Beatles, Monty Python, and HandMade’s unique contribution to cinema." - Deep Focus"Sellers have crafted a great behind-the-scenes yarn that encapsulates in great detail the toil, triumph, tears and zeal to make these movies, along with the hubris that made it both succeed and fall apart." - The Playlist"Robert Sellers does a fantastic job of delivering the details in a fun-to-read manner. The Handmade films saga must be read to be believed, and this is a must read for any." - Pretty Clever Film Review"This is a great read for film buffs and fans of British cinema." - Retrenders
