Sir Henry at Rawlinson End is a 1980 British film based on the eponymous character created by Vivian Stanshall. It starred Trevor Howard as Sir Henry and Stanshall himself as Henry's brother Hubert. Unusually, the film was released in sepia toned monochrome. As complex as the mind of its creator, Vivian Stanshall, the plot of Sir Henry at Rawlinson End revolves around attempts to exorcise the ghost of Humbert, the brother of Sir Henry (Trevor Howard). Humbert was accidentally killed in a drunken duck-shooting incident whilst escaping from an illicit tryst. Amongst the eccentric family members, mad friends and grudgingly loyal servants involved are the eternally knitting Aunt Florrie, the tapeworm obsessed Mrs. E, Lady Phillipa of Staines (Liz Smith), who enjoys the odd 'small' sherry and the ever-present Old Scrotum, Sir Henry's wrinkled retainer.

Richard D (ca) wrote: Here's a movie that could have failed ... very easily. It's partly a cop action film, but those elements of the plot are really bland, by-the-numbers stuff involving drug smuggling, warehouses, bearer bonds ... all stuff that shows up a million times in the 80s in bland, genre fare. It's also a comedy, but quite a lot of the scripted comedy is only okay. If this film had been made with someone like Jim Belushi, it would have been utterly forgettable. It's often said that you can't save mediocre material by putting the right people in it, but I submit this as a counter-example. Murphy at his peak with this great supporting cast, a great director, and Simpson/Bruckheimer's big-money professional gloss turns this into a really great film.
